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.

When life becomes more and more hectic, who doesn't need a go-to trick to ease stress? As it turns out, the secret to relaxing your mind could be hidden in the colors your eyes glaze over every day. Staring at the color purple could help keep you calm. These jewel-toned shades (like their blue counterparts) have been known for their de-stressing powers and can even help ease some feelings of anxiety. If you're in need of a little zen today, check out the purple scenes below and soothe your mood, instantly.
