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 express gratitude in our own unique way, whether it's through a thank you note or paying a kind act forward. Regardless of how we choose to show it, cultivating an attitude of thanks can work miracles on our well-being. Studies have shown that gratitude makes us happier and more resilient and even improves our physical health. If you're looking for a mindful moment to help you cultivate some thankfulness today, take a look at the slideshow of roses below, which symbolize love and gratitude. Then tell us in the comments: How do you express thanks each day?
