This Is What Relaxation Looks Like Across The Globe

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 different ideas of how to relax. For some, it's kicking back by a refreshing pool; for others, it's taking in a scenic view. However you choose to unwind, it's important to make it a priority. Taking time for yourself (and yes, that includes going on vacation) can help alleviate job burnout and boost your immune system, not to mention it just feels good. Take a look below at how people around the world find time to relax -- from vacationing in Greece to spending time in their own backyards. Then make a little time of your own.
