GPS Guide: Debbie Gisonni Turns To Nature For Inner Peace And Balance

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.

According to Debbie Gisonni, the best things in life are free. She says, "I find the most relaxing and healing images are totally free and readily available in nature. Whether it’s a flower in bloom or a flock of birds frolicking in the wind, nature has a way of slowing me down and bringing my body, mind and spirit into the present moment -- exactly what’s needed for inner peace and balance. This GPS Guide is a combination of nature photographs by Joe Prestipino and real life lessons from my book, The Goddess of Happiness, A Down-to-Earth Guide for Heavenly Balance and Bliss. I hope it inspires you to take a few minutes every day to soak in the landscape of your life."
