These Relaxing Images Show How We Truly Thrive

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.

In a world powered by technology, sometimes we just. need. a. break. Taking a step back from our inboxes to cultivate a little peace is crucial to getting through our days (happily!). Take a look at the photos below of how people prioritize their happiness (and sanity) when they're stressed -- let their inspiration motivate you to not just survive, but thrive each day.

How do you live a well-rounded life? Share your photos on Instagram with the hashtag #HowIThrive.
