8 Pieces Of Wisdom From Winnie The Pooh, A Bear Stuffed With Fluff (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.

On the days when you need it most, cheering yourself up can be an impossible task. When your go-to moves aren't working, you may need to turn to an unexpected source -- maybe even a bear named Pooh.

With a sunny disposition and a tummy full of honey, he believes "nobody can be uncheered with a balloon." Want more simple statements of joy to brighten your day? Click through the slideshow below for some inspiring words that will keep you merry throughout the week.
