GPS Guide: April Showers Bring Us Peace (PHOTOS)

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.

No more begrudging the April showers that bring us gorgeous May flowers. Like the American Indian proverb states: "The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears." So pull on those boots, open up those umbrellas and embrace the rainfall. Imagine the rain washing your stressors away, or let your mind focus on its rhythmic drops or simply gaze at this dewy scenery.
