Capture A Moment Of Stillness With The Stunning Open Desert Sky (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.

Feeling that workday slump? Between loud distractions, multiple meetings, and constantly being plugged in, sometimes our brains are moving too fast for us to keep up. Taking some time to sit in the silence can actually help boost your creativity and increase your productivity in the long run. The vast desert sky may be the key to offering us that moment of quiet we need -- after all, the word desert itself means "an abandoned place." Take a look at the slideshow below and revel in the peaceful silence the wide open can provide. Your work will thank you for it!
