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.

We all want to escape to a calmer location when things get chaotic, but finding an uninterrupted area of quiet isn't always easy. Since most of us can't just jump on a plane to a remote island or plop ourselves in front of a grand fireplace, it can be difficult to find our peaceful place -- until now. Whether it's the crackle of a heated log or the sounds of waves lapping the shore, the five videos below will put you just inches away from a soothing scene -- no plane ticket (or actual fireplace) required.
