How To Be A Symbol Of Generosity To Others (PHOTOS)

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.

By Rob White

Human generosity is not only a foundational quality of humanity, it is a great demonstration of cooperation in action. The genius of human generosity is found in the demonstration of the ordinary, everyday, unassuming "guru" who shows up unexpectedly. This guru offers just the right comfort and encouragement, which is the greatest blessing one can receive in challenging moments of need. An ordinary, everyday, unassuming guru is anyone who reaches down to lift someone up by offering a helping hand or insightful tip. Want to be this symbol in someone's life? Check out the five tips below.
