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.

While we may not be happy all day, every day, we all have those little (or big!) moments of true joy. Whether it's a blissful spring morning or a family gathering, those go-to comforts can be just what we need to turn our days around when we're feeling blue. We asked our Twitter and Facebook communities to share with us the first thing that comes to mind when they think of happiness. Take a look at some of their responses below, then share with us in the comments what happiness means to you.
