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.

Flowers are indisputably one of the happiest of nature's spring and summer gifts. Their beauty inspires creativity, optimism and all around joy. Maybe you watch your little seeds grow into effusive blossoms in your safe-haven of a garden, or you revel in the cut arrangement perched on your kitchen window. Whatever it may be, one thing is certain -- flowers are irresistible. Check out these inspirational quotes and radiant blossoms below, and prepare to feel uplifted.
