Relax Your Way to FABULOUS

You can go from Funky to Fabulous with out lifting a finger.

Contemplation or meditation is yet another way to unplug from your stress and access your inner FAB.

In a 2001 study at the University of Wisconsin, researchers used brain imaging to show that meditation shifts activity in the prefrontal cortex from the right hemisphere to the left. That translates to your being more enthusiastic, relaxed and happy. And that's pretty Fabulous.

FAB Tip: Take a FAB Break.
1. Turn off your phone.
2. Close your eyes and observe your breathing.
3. If you are calmed by visual imagery, spend that time observing a flower or nature photo.
4. Had a long day? Lie down and relax every muscle in your body.
