Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “The directive has exactly the opposite effect on most people. People who instruct a colleague, subordinate or loved one to relax may have good intentions. But it is usually better to resist ordering people to change their emotional state and try a different strategy. If you are on the receiving end of an order to relax, there are countermoves that can keep your blood pressure from soaring higher.” – Why You Should Never Tell Someone to Relax
  • “Whether you have a stressful job or a hectic family life (or both!) it can be difficult to fit in some ‘me’ time and relax. So if you don’t have time for a yoga class or a relaxing massage, try out these ways to unwind throughout the day.” – 5 surprising (and really easy!) ways to relax
  • “It’s vacation season. But if you’re like many people, even after you plop down into a beach chair, you find your brain running nonstop. It’s like you can’t find the “off” switch. To get better at relaxing, you have to practice it more than once a year! You can get more out of your vacation, or even your weekend, by learning to work your relaxation muscle a little every day.” – How To Relax Like A Pro
  • “In today’s hustling and bustling world, it can be difficult to find the time to simply relax. That being said, what if I told you that relaxing protects your heart, boosts your memory, and lowers your stroke risk? You might be able to fit it into your schedule then, right? There are so many health benefits of relaxation, and the truth of the matter is that you’ll actually improve your productivity and life quality by allowing yourself the time to sit back and do nothing.” – 13 Relaxation Quotes For National Relaxation Day
  • “But for those of us whose brains are really good at being on,creating space so that your mind and body and reconnect to a state of reset might be the hardest part. But, here’s a hint: don’t stress out about it. If you don’t know how to reach that relaxed state, it’s OK. Breathe. Sometimes relaxation doesn’t happen on command. Sometimes we have to start to decompress and unplugged- slowly. One step at a time.” – Relaxation Tips For The Hopelessly Wired
