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 been sitting at your desk all day -- stuck in a rut? We feel your pain. Sometimes all it takes to galvanize your soul is a quick injection of joy. Remember the care-free days of childhood -- frolicking through the never-ending summer days? Who says you have to be a child to take an adventure? Sometimes you need to pick your feet up off the ground in order to get a fresh perspective on life. Check out these care-free jumping beans below, and pick your own feet up off the ground. You just may find yourself appreciating life from a different angle.
