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 have those days when we're feeling off-track -- either you started your morning off on the wrong foot, something didn't go your way at the office or you hardly feel relaxed when you step in your front door after work. Luckily, there's a simple way to turn it all around, and it takes little time and minimal effort: See the positive.

Looking on the bright side of the life can help us make the best of a bad situation (not to mention the incredible health benefits that come with it as well). If you're feeling down, take a moment to reflect with a little optimism. If that isn't convincing enough, check out the hidden rainbows below. You'll be amazed to discover that sometimes the bright side is where you least expect it.

  • Rainbows can be found in a simple activity...
  • In the darkness...
  • When you look up...
  • In spontaneous playtime...
  • On the floor that grounds you...
  • In a "work in progress"...
  • In something seemingly ordinary...
  • And finally, in the mirror (all you have to do is look).
