GPS Guide: Water As Inherently Calming (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.

We interact with water everyday. But very rarely do we stop to appreciate the beauty inherent in this natural resource. Whether we are washing fruit, warming ourselves under the liquid rushing out of the shower head, or diving into the pool, we are interacting with the most natural liquid on earth.

Perhaps it’s its purity that makes water so calming. Below, 20 photos of water in its most mesmerizing and versatile forms -- scroll through and feel instantly relaxed (and perhaps a little thirsty).
