7 Spots Where You Wish You Could Meditate

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.

The power of meditation allows us to get lost in the moment -- and where better to do that than in the perfect, peaceful setting? Whether it's among the fresh air of a mountaintop or the warm sands of a sunny beach, we all have our go-to happy place we'd give anything to jet off to in order to grab some solace. We asked our Twitter community where their ideal meditation location is and included some of their responses below. Tell us in the comments: Where's the one place you'd love to log some mindful moments?
