11 Magical Boats That'll Help You Drift Off Into Peace (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.

When there are too many tasks in the day and not enough time, getting far away from your problem feels like the only solution. Since hopping on a jet plane isn't always an option, taking a moment to calm your nerves can give you the concentration necessary to tackle any task on your to-do list.

We've discovered the beauty of water and the calming effect it can have. Whether you enjoy the tranquility of still lakes, or rhythmic crashing of waves, a boat can be the perfect getaway vehicle. Click through the slideshow to escape and float into a state of peace. Bonus: With these still images, you needn't worry about the possibility of feeling seasick.
