Why You Should Travel Through Life At The Pace Of A Sea Turtle (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.

If Crush from "Finding Nemo" is even somewhat true to life, we can assume sea turtles are by far the most laid-back creatures under the sea. Cartoons aside, these slow-and-steady guys are onto something: taking a step back from the constant rush of daily life can not only lower stress levels but can help you become more productive.

See if these serene sea turtles help you breathe just a little bit easier today.
