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.

Knowledge is power. When we strive to learn new things, we sharpen our brains and expose ourselves to another sector of the world. And studies show that knowledge isn't just personally satisfying -- learning something new can benefit our brains and produce more joy in the long run. In honor of upcoming school graduations across the world, check out the seven quotes below that remind us that lessons can always be learned outside the walls of a classroom.
