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.

How do you lead a thriving life?

Is it setting aside some time for a mindful walk? Spending time with loved ones? Or just stopping to smell the roses? However you enjoy creating well-being in your life, it's important to make it a priority. We have a habit of getting sucked into the chaos of our daily lives, running around like there aren't enough hours in the day. In order to stop this "time famine," we need to make time for our ourselves.

In honor of today's Thrive: A Third Metric Live Event, which looks at redefining success beyond the societal norm, take a look below at how people pause to make time for a little well-being in their lives. Then, share with us in the comments: How do you thrive?

Want to show us how you lead a thriving life? Upload your well-being photos to Instagram with the hashtag #HowIThrive.
