GPS Guide: Sunrises For A Stress-Free Morning


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 all know how difficult it can be to get out of bed when the dreaded alarm buzzes. But picturing the serenity of a sunrise is a great way to relax and start the morning refreshed. A sunrise, the first glimmer of sunlight for the day, represents a new beginning -- a fresh start. Not-so-early birds don't have to miss out. If you find yourself sleeping through this beautiful phenomenon every morning, scroll through these energizing images of the sun plunging above the horizon, and start your day on a refreshing note.
