Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “The GIF is mesmerizing. It starts out as a flat line that turns into a triangle, which is then enveloped by a square. New shapes continue to build on the old ones, eventually turning into an octagon before it all collapses in on itself to start the routine over again. The idea is to breathe in as the shapes expand, then out as they fold down (or vice-versa), for about five seconds each.” –  This Calming GIF Can Help You Handle Stress
  • “Living in a neighborhood where you have lots of opportunity to gaze at blue spaces — bodies of water like the sea — is associated with lower levels of stress, researchers found.” – Blue spaces beat green spaces when it comes to mental health, study finds
  • “No, not all classical music is relaxing. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, an excellent pianist, once explained that to Vogue magazine. Vogue congratulated her on her musical pursuits and said it must be relaxing. Rice’s wry reply: ‘Playing Beethoven and Brahms is not relaxing.’” – Classical music pieces that can soothe your soul
  • “If mornings are dominated by the commute and school-run and email—all the rough-and-tumble of modern life, especially in cities—they’re something to get through, rather than to celebrate. But mornings are also special. They come before everything else in the day, so what you do with them matters.” – To be more productive, try angling your morning toward what brings you joy
  • “We just came across one of the greatest videos we’ve ever seen – one that has successfully lulled our brains into a state of relaxation. It’s called ‘Memories of Paintings’ and it beautifully features dancing paint.” – This soothing video of dancing paint will help you fall asleep
  • “It might comfort you to know, though, that there are a lot of us currently enjoying a solo act. More than 25 percent of American homes today only have on person in it, a number that has tripled since 1970. And we’re having fun.” – 8 Surprisingly Calming Things To Do Alone
