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 nature produces the best magic, reminding us that our planet is capable of amazing things -- and nothing demonstrates this more than the yearly solar activity of the northern lights. Each winter, the sky illuminates in vibrant colors and lights up the snowy world below. This year, NASA predicts the display will be more vibrant than ever, proving that even the best things can still outdo themselves. Check out the slideshow below of the inspiring light display and take a moment to remind yourself that you're capable of lighting up the world, too.
