Meditation is a wonderful way of calming multitude of thoughts we have every day. It never stops voices (who would want to, with score of brilliant ideas they come up with), but it helps them take a nap for a while. I feel so connected to Universe and to God, when I meditate and I come out of it, with a deep feeling of peace.
Reading inspires, motivates, teaches, mitigates and soothes. I have an absolute fascination for information. Books have helped people I know, to learn to speak English; taught them lessons that have helped them to turn their lives around; motivated them to aspire to desired heights. Books impart stories that show us we are surrounded by wonder, every day; heal our hearts; teach us compassion and help us see others in a new light.
Laughing is truly 'the best medicine'. Whatever your sense of humor, there's nothing like laughing until you're breathless and your stomach hurts. Laughing gives you character creases around your eyes; it soothes hurts; it lifts your spirit and it connects you to those who laugh with you. Laughing at yourself relieves pressure; shows up your weaknesses in a way that allows you to accept them without having to put up a defensive barrier and connects you to those who were intimidated by you. It is ultimate icebreaker and so, forges unbreakable friendships.
So, learn to 'chill' and you will find your Life is so much richer for learning to relax and take Life 'not so seriously'.
