In our perpetually changing lives, it's important to be aware of what makes us feel at peace. It's even more crucial to embrace that tranquil state -- even for just a fleeting moment.
We asked photographers at EyeEm to share photos of what brings them inner calm, and rounded up some of their submissions below. Whether it's the stillness of a lake at dawn, colorful paint palettes or church stained-glass windows, it's clear that serenity is not one-size-fits-all -- and that's a beautiful thing.

This GPS Guide is part of a series of posts designed to bring you back to balance when you're feeling off course.
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 visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.
