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.

One of the greatest things about meditation is that it truly can be enjoyed by all. There's something for everyone, whether you prefer guidance or just to sit in stillness. It's important to find the form that works best for you. Relax and let go with the three guided meditations below.

"Today I Am Calm"
Saying or hearing an affirmation can be a great way to keep your mind clear. The following minute-long meditation will give you a quick timeout to remind you that you are and can stay calm. Follow along, and repeat the mantras whenever you need.

Let Go
This video can visually transport you to a calm field where the only thing you need to focus on is finding peace and quiet in the open sky.
