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.

As 2013 comes to a close and we start to focus on our intentions for the coming year, it can become stressful to think about all that we have left to accomplish and all that we aim to do. Instead of letting the anxiety and self-doubt creep in, cast a positive light on your successes and focus on the optimism of a new beginning to help ease your worries.

The playlist below contains songs about hope, renewal and the promise of a brand new year (plus a few that just make you feel good). As you listen (and dance it out), vow to make 2014 the year of you -- and your best one yet.
