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.

Photographs have the unique ability to capture a scene in motion, and slow it down to a precise moment. Photos can express what words are unable to sometimes articulate, and have a permanence that sparks memories for years to come. Black and white photos specifically illicit a special nostalgia, as many old photos are beautiful in their effortless simplicity. Explore the calming still photos below, and tell us in the comments how photography has brought meaning into your life.
