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.

When we're worried or stressed, sometimes it takes a new approach to how we view things in order to tackle our problems. Taking some time to refocus can help you calm your mind, slow your breath and shift your perspective. Check out the slideshow below of nine aerial shots from around the world. Let them remind you that you have the power to conquer your challenges, face your fears and sweep away stress -- all you need to do is take a step back.
