GPS Guide: The Sacred Space That Helps You Unplug


The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- of 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.

Everyone has their sacred space; the place they like to escape to when life becomes just a little too chaotic. It's the one area where they can leave their worries and their stress -- and their smartphones -- behind. Since taking a break from our devices is crucial to overall health and happiness, we asked our Twitter and Facebook communities to tell us where they like to unplug. Check out the slideshow below of their sacred spaces, then tell us in the comments the place where you refuse to bring your phone.
