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 associate arthritis with the aging process; our joints simply don’t work as well as we age. In the GPS Gide below, Personal Development expert Rob White explains that there’s another kind of arthritis that can set in way earlier -- it’s called Arthritis of the Mind. It’s a rigidity that can set in at any age and no one is immune.

White says, “I’ve been around for nearly 70 years and have certainly experienced my share of unbending thoughts that only became more stiff when accompanied by an attitude of self-righteousness. In order to bring myself back to my youthful state of WOW, I came up with five ways to rid myself of the woeful feeling of frustration and resignation." The best way to push forward when feeling down is to stop pushing at all. Below, find some ideas that will help take your finger off the ‘push’ button.
