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.

Have you ever looked out at a city skyline and wondered how something full of so many tiny parts came together into such a magnificent whole? It's easy to feel like an ant in a huge swallowing big city. But a window opens us up to a piece of a city -- gives us a peeping hole through which to take in the city's beauty in parts. So peel back the curtain, and enjoy these nine slices of city beauty. Recognize any of these skylines? Tell us in the comments!
