GPS Guide: What Rainbows Can Teach Us About Happiness (PHOTOS)

The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony, or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.

You can either let the struggles and obstacles in your life get the best of you, or you can see them for their virtues. In overcoming adversity, we learn much more about ourselves than we do when everything's going swimmingly. While the lesson isn't always evident in the midst of a crisis, the grey periods often give way to growth, and even sometimes reward. Take, as evidence, the rainbow.
