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.

The winter season may feel uninviting to some, but the cold weather can have its mindful benefits. Whether your favorite part of the upcoming season is the outdoor adventures, the family gatherings or even just the distant promise of spring, there's always something to appreciate. Crisp air and fresh snow can also be energizing -- something we can all use as our holiday stress starts to build.

Check out the slideshow below, take a moment to reenergize your spirit and indulge in a mental walk through a winter wonderland.
