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.

What is it about standing near a shoreline that makes us feel our fears wash away? Whether you live close to a beach or are dreaming of one from a distance, the ocean can soothe our souls and even have a significant impact when it comes to lowering our stress levels. Next time you're feeling anxious, let your toes sink in the sand and the water lap at your ankles. Too cold or can't get to the beach? This guide should do the trick.
