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.

It's a simple human truth: We are often our own biggest critics. Whether it's our job performance, our appearance or a piece of creative work, no matter how many compliments we get, sometimes we just don't believe we're good enough. We could all use a little boost every now and then, and the resulting confidence can push us to move mountains. If you're looking for a little encouragement, check out the self-assuring affirmations below. Then take on the world with the knowledge that you're capable of anything.
