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.

It's no secret how excited we get when the winter blues start to give way to a little warm-weather euphoria. And that happiness isn't just a figment of our imagination -- there is a little science behind why the spring season makes us to joyful. What could be better than a little sun after the cloudy skies of winter?

As if we weren't excited enough for spring, the nine little reminders below show us that the changing season doesn't just bring warmth, but also a world of possibilities. Then, share with us in the comments: What's your favorite part about a new season?
