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.

There's nothing harder than trying to focus when your mind is elsewhere. Whether you're still trying to shake off your weekend or you're wishing you hadn't hit that snooze button a few too many times, concentration can be hard to cultivate.

Luckily, when it's impossible to find some quiet, there's another way to silence the chatter: music. Music has been proven to promote success and help listeners power through their tasks, and certain sounds can actually be more beneficial to your work than others. Classical music, for example, or even the sounds of a coffee shop can all have a positive effect on focus and creativity. Check out the playlist below of music to aid your productivity, then tell us in the comments below what you like to listen to in order to help you complete your to-do list.
