8 Mantras To Spark Your Creative Side

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.

Henry David Thoreau once said, "The world is but a canvas to the imagination" -- and he couldn't have been more accurate. But even though we all possess the potential to use that imagination, we all have those days where we just need a little extra inspiration. Our own thoughts can often block out any innovative energy we might need. Next time you're yearning to ignite that creative spark, take a look at the eight mantras below. You'll be channeling your inner-Picasso in no time (paintbrush optional).
