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.

With the chaos of our lives being about as unpredictable as the weather, we could all use a little escape. Unfortunately, it's not so easy to just hop on the next flight and find ourselves lounging near a soothing body of water. Luckily, there are ways to turn your present moment into an idyllic mental vacation. Whether you're still stuck in a cold climate or if you're already in a warm locale, let these 10 peaceful dock scenes below be your gateway to a relaxing state of mind -- no raft or airline ticket necessary.
