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.

Fire -- a force of nature created by extreme friction and heat -- (thanks for discovering it, cavemen) is a truly incredible phenomenon. Fire allows us to see in the dark, and to clear our cloudy vision. The Greeks were said to believe that the god Prometheus brought fire down from the heavens to make human life easier. He gave mankind the gift of fire, and it truly is a gift. Check out this series of candles below, that have the power to ignite even in the darkest of environments.
