Time to relax!

  • “Here’s the problem: You treat humor like a nice thing that happens, oh, whenever. But scientific research is showing giggles, guffaws, and jokes are far too important to be left to chance. We’re gonna learn the best ways to use humor to make you happier, healthier, more successful at work and even to improve your relationships.” – The scientific proof that laughing is really good for you
  • “If you’ve seen the internet going kind of crazy for a game called The Trail for the past 24 hours, it’s because Kongregate dropped it into soft-launch like a sack of hot coals. The Trail looks to be more of a ‘chill-out’ kind of game with easy, exploratory gameplay, in which you travel across different locations collecting/crafting items before eventually building up a community.” – The Trail: A Frontier Journey is a relaxing game about travelling and making your fortune
  • “[The] so-called “stress response” is a normal reaction to threatening situations, honed in our prehistory to help us survive threats like an animal attack or a flood. Today, we rarely face these physical dangers, but challenging situations in daily life can set off the stress response. We can’t avoid all sources of stress in our lives, nor would we want to. But we can develop healthier ways of responding to them.” – Six relaxation techniques to reduce stress
  • “They claim the Yeelight is capable of producing 16 million different colors. Obviously, there’s no way I can verify that, but you do have an impressive variety of colors to choose from. If you’re using the lamp as a reading light, you’re most likely going to stick with white, but you do have an entire rainbow to play with, if that’s your thing.” – The Yeelight Brings a Soothing Rainbow to Your Bedside
  • “Meetings (also known by their full name, ‘Meetings Ughhh’) are literally putting us to sleep. One in three people reported falling asleep or feeling drowsy during a work meeting, according to the results of a survey the hotel company Hilton released today (Sept. 7).” – It’s not just you: A new survey confirms meetings are putting people to sleep

Time to relax!

  • “The Hydraulic Press Channel is quite soothing. Why YouTube exists, in my opinion.” – Hydraulic Press Channel
  • “I told myself I needed to at least attempt (keyword) to quiet my mind and enjoy what is meant to be this season of pure relaxation. I’m a worrier (I’m also a Cancer, if that makes my sensitive traits more understandable) and struggle with giving myself time to rest, so I knew I’d have to be increasingly aware of my attitude and stress levels.” – How I Finally Learned to Chill Out and Relax This Summer
  • “Everyone involved — children, parents, and nurses — preferred the tablet distraction method over the midazolam. Having a non-pharmacologic alternative to quell nerves made the operation ordeal easier to swallow.” – Playing an iPad game is just as soothing as sedatives
  • “Does this set the record for filmed footage with the greatest amount of bears eating the greatest amount of apples? Maybe! There’s no record for that.” – Watching bears devour apples is surprisingly relaxing
  • “…if you’re using the same mental activities to relax as you do to work, your brain isn’t really getting a rest. You might spend all day reading text on a screen at work and then try to relax by reading news sites or an ereader at home. You might like one of these activities more, but for your brain it’s still pretty much the same. To really relax, it’s better to find something that doesn’t resemble the work you do…” – Take Breaks That Don’t Use the Same Skills As Your Work For Better Relaxation
