These 9 Happy Mantras Will Give You A Brighter Outlook, Instantly

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.

When life throws us obstacles, sometimes we need happy reminders to keep a bright attitude. Mantras can put our challenging circumstances into perspective and increase our positivity in a matter of seconds. And keeping a happy mentality doesn't just improve our outlooks -- an optimistic attitude can aid in a healthier immune system, better cholesterol and even increase longevity.
