These May Blooms Will Help You Reflect On Happiness

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 define happiness? For some it can be found in the eyes of their loved ones or in a good laugh. For others it's a warm spring day or a simple flower. However you choose to see happiness on a day-to-day basis, we have the power to cultivate as much of it as possible -- and whenever we want.

If you're seeking a little joy in your day, take a look at the May blooms below -- lilies of the valley and hawthorn plants, which symbolize hope and happiness -- and meditate on how content you are in the present moment. You'll be blooming with joy in no time!
