Your Ideal Relaxation Routine In One Word

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.

We all have go-to tricks when we need to manage our stress. Some of us escape to another world by going for a run outside, while others curl up with a good book. Whatever your routine may be, it's important to curb those anxious emotions, since stress can negatively affect our work, our bodies and even our brains. We asked our Twitter and Facebook communities to describe their relaxation routines to us in one word. If you're looking to switch up your practice, take a look at the suggestions below -- and say goodbye to stress.
