Rebecca Zamon's GPS Guide

The stress and strains of our always-connected lives can sometimes take us off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what works for others in the hopes that you can find out what works for yourself. Whether it's photos that relax you or make you smile, songs that bring you back to your heart, quotes or poems that balance you or meditative exercises that help de-stress you, we all have tricks that we use when we get bent out of shape. 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 harmony.

Taking the time to find a new recipe, shop for it and cook a meal makes me feel so much better on a tough day -- having a concrete project to concentrate on, getting to use my hands and feeding the people I love just feels so satisfying. My most recent meals:
