This Time-Lapse Photography Of Nature's Beauty Is Breathtaking

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.

Unplugging is one of the most effective ways to enjoy nature and its many health benefits, but it's not always the easiest option. That doesn't mean, however, that you are forced to miss out on the de-stressing powers that an escape from technology can give you. Let the time-lapse GIFs below serve as your journey outside to appreciate the awe-inspiring beauty of the world that exists beyond your screen.

Take a moment to get lost in the aurora borealis...

Watch clouds gently flow over a city below...

View the melting of winter into the lively spring season...

Witness the glory of a lightning storm dance through the clouds...

Take in the phenomenon of the sun rising and falling across the horizon...

And become filled with the energy of a blossoming flower.
