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.

At the end of a busy week, sometimes we need just a little moment of zen to bring us back to tranquility -- and nothing has quite the relaxing impact as rain. Setting aside some time for ourselves to cultivate some calm can do wonders for our productivity, mental health and help us mindfully prepare for the weekend. Take a few moments out of your day to practice a few meditative breaths, listen to the sound of the rain and click through the slideshow below to find some soothing serenity.
