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.

After coming back to work from an enjoyable weekend, it can be challenging to dive right into creative endeavors -- but the inspiration you need may be as simple as thinking green. Studies have shown that staring at green hues can get those creative juices flowing, possibly because the color signifies physical and psychological growth. So if you're looking for a little spark this morning, check out the slideshow below and tap into that imagination.
