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.

For years there has been research on how certain colors can influence our psychological well-being. Want to feel less stressed? Surround yourself with hues of blue. Looking for a bit more creativity? Look to the nature's vibrant greens.

Most shades in your environment can affect your reactions -- and the most prominent colors of Valentine's Day are no exception. Research has shown that shades of light pink can create calming reactions when people are angry, where shades of red are known to draw out invigorating and passionate feelings. In honor of the holiday of love, check out the hues of reds and pinks in the slideshow below and indulge in a little Valentine's Day happiness.
