Hey HuffPost Teen readers!
As you may or may not know, The Huffington Post has launched a new iPhone app called "GPS For The Soul." I'm writing this post because I think it's perfect for you guys and I want to encourage you to give it a try. Here's why.
"GPS" is all about dealing with stress -- a subject that, unfortunately, no group understands better than high school students right now.
Basically, you can use the app to create your own inspiration or dream board. For example, you can choose your favorite photos on your phone, set them to music and add some inspirational quotes that you love. (Or, if you're a Belieber or Directioner, you can mash up your favorite fan photos, songs and lyrics -- sort of like you're already doing on YouTube, but way easier.)
And you can share what you create with your friends.
It's cool, it's free, and you can download it in the iTunes store. I would love for you all to test it out, tell me what you think about it and most importantly, share all the amazing dream boards you make! We'll give some of the most inspirational a shout-out on HuffPost Teen.
For all of you who are feeling graduation-induced anxiety -- or are feeling worried about anything going on in your lives right now -- know that you don't have to go through it alone. You can use the "GPS" app to pull up positive, calming messages when you're feeling most stressed, and you can head over to our "Less Stress More Living" page for other creative ideas on finding balance. You should also try talking to someone about it that you trust. (Our blogger Evan recently wrote that opening up to his family about how he was feeling inside helped him overcome his anxiety.)
Here is a video of the editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington, explaining how to use the "GPS For The Soul" app:
