Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “The idea behind floating is simple: Spending an hour in a tank filled with 10 inches of water and about 800 pounds of Epsom salt, without any stimulation to distract us, lowers our heart rate, blood pressure and muscle tension, thereby reducing stress. Also, when we’re relaxed, our bodies release endorphins, the happy chemical.” – I Tried Floatation Therapy + Here’s What Happened
  • “Because the globs of paint are mirrored to create a symmetrical effect and because it looks like the paint is mixing itself on its own without a palette knife, it’s sort of a trip to watch it all get thrown together, like if it was just magically plopping itself on top of each other in some sort of mesmerizing magical dance.” – Watching Paint Symmetrically Mix Itself Is Surprisingly Fun
  • “The monotonous rumble of an aircraft’s engines with subtle movements and sound in the aircraft’s cabin can have great relaxational properties, and a lot of people find great benefit in falling asleep to the sound of an aircraft’s engines and then waking up eight hours later relaxed, and ‘virtually’ in another country!” – Around the world with Inflight Video, YouTube’s most soothing aviation channel
  • “The closest thing our body has to ESP, Shams muses, is when someone experiences phantom limb phenomenon, which occurs when a person has a limb removed; it’s sensory deprivation in the realest sense.” – Real ESP Experiments Inspired ‘Stranger Things’
  • “‘Social media can have some benefits and opportunities for connectivity. For example, social media platforms allow people with anxiety to express their feelings and connect with others who suffer from similar issues,’ says Monroe, though he adds that, ‘social media needs to be tempered with attentiveness, mindfulness practices, and a critical eye.’” – How Beauty Vloggers Use YouTube To Cope With Anxiety
