The Most Encouraging Words, Ever


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.

Sometimes it's the thoughts of others that help us through our struggles. Whether we're feeling down or just need that extra push in order to accomplish our goals, words of encouragement can give us the boost we need to keep going. We collected phrases from our Twitter and Facebook communities that provide inspiration when it's needed most. Scroll through and discover some encouraging advice to embolden you. Then, tell us in the comments: What are some of words of encouragement you've received during tough times?
