Lindsay Holmes/HuffPost

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.

Lindsay Holmes, Editorial Intern for HuffPost's GPS for the Soul, knows it's important to banish bad thoughts -- but knowing how negativity can affect her health doesn't always stop it from creeping in. When the chaos gets overwhelming, she employs several go-to tricks in order to change her perspective. Check out her personal GPS Guide to controlling stress and negative energy in the slideshow below.
