These Community Gardens Display The Power Of Togetherness

Posted: Updated:

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.

Communities have been around since the ancient world -- and there's a reason for it. Feeling a sense of belonging within a large group can combat loneliness and prevent mental decline. If you're looking to feel like you're a part of something bigger than yourself, take a mindful moment to scroll through the slideshow below. As these lovely gardens prove, coming together can be a beautiful thing.
