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 we just need to take a time out for ourselves -- no excuses necessary. Even if your only moment to yourself is in a cubicle, you can still relax and recharge by visualizing a happy and quiet place for you to retreat to. Treehouses make awesome getaways and provide a safe space for you to think and connect with yourself and nature. So use these images to turn your desk into your own treehouse for a moment and let go of any tension.
