8 Rooftop Retreats To Help You Focus On The Bigger Picture (PHOTOS)

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 our thoughts get too crowded, sometimes we just need to go somewhere where we can de-stress and gain a bigger perspective. A brief shift in your environment is a simple way to take your mind off of what's worrying you. Can't make an immediate escape? Take a mental retreat with these rooftop views from around the world, which prove that what we're seeing from one angle isn't always the whole picture.
