  1. One of the most useful tips I ever received was from Donna Thomson, who wrote a nice little book called The Vibrant Life. She suggested that I imagine my thoughts as kids running wild on a playground while I am sitting quietly on a nearby bench. This works very well for me–it separates me from my busy mind and helps me find a peaceful place.

    Of course, starting you day off with a short quiet time and having another one before we doze off is also quite useful.
