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.

When we're being mindful of the present moment, we're able to find joy in the simplest pleasures. When was the last time you savored your morning coffee? Or your drive to work? Instead of worrying about getting your caffeine fix quickly or stressing about the commute, try appreciating the taste of the drink and the quiet time you have to yourself before your busy day. Need more reason to stay present? Check out the inspiration below.
