The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- of 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.

Ever notice a change in your attitude when the sun's not out? As humans, we crave natural light. The sun increases our retention and productivity, boosts vitamin D and it can significantly improve our mood -- it's no wonder we tend to dislike rainy days. Sunlight exposure could be just the lift you need to adjust your outlook and power through your hectic day. Since we all can't get outdoors in the middle of our work, take a mental trip with the slideshow below and bask in the glow of natural light.
