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 the words we need to hear don't come from our friends and family, but from the minds of thoughtful strangers. When you're feeling lost and need a little inspiration to keep moving forward, look around you. Your environment may offer the best encouragement you can ask for. Take a look at the seven chalk messages below, which prove that the best motivation may even be right under your feet.
