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.

Every four years, the world watches as each country's most talented winter athletes compete for a chance to fulfill their dreams of gold. Some are triumphant and some go home with the satisfying knowledge that they made it to their sport's greatest stage, but the most important accomplishment is the winning spirit each Olympian possesses -- no matter the medal. Check out the photos below of some of this year's athletes in Sochi and channel your own successful spirit. As these competitors prove, there's nothing stopping us from overcoming our differences.
