Time to relax!

  • “The guide speaks for itself, but while some of them seem a little silly (like sniffing a cup of coffee in the morning to help you wake up pleasantly) others actually work wonders if you’re in the habit of doing them (like taking some alone time to clear your head after a busy day at work, or calling someone you love to de-stress after a tough day.) It also suggests a few things you should absolutely avoid, like ending the day on a negative note, or leaving the office without tying up loose ends that will keep you stressed long after you’ve gone home for the night.” – 50 Ways to Relax Without Spending a Dime
  • “The ethereal video titled ‘Kingdom of Colours’ by Thomas Blanchard contains a montage of vibrant shapes, moving paint, and soap liquid that will put you to sleep. The video was posted on Vimeo five days ago, yet seems as if it was made to get through the chaos of today.” – Let this soothing short film calm your rattled, post-election nerves
  • “Just as there are billions and billions of stars in our Milky Way galaxy, there are billions and billions of voices here on our little home planet, Earth. The voices swarm the airwaves, our televisions, social media, and of course, our heads. And while it can all be a bit overwhelming at times, there is one voice out of those billions, which, while no longer with us in body, will forever sooth us in spirit. And that is the endlessly optimistic, sane, and scientific voice of astronomer, physicist, and science communicator, Carl Sagan.” – Happy Carl Sagan Day: Let’s All Listen To a Soothing Voice of Sanity
  • “In general, tracks without lyrics are the most ideal for anyone looking to de-stress. These types of songs don’t engage the brain’s language center, and they allow listeners to carry on other tasks while harnessing the power of a steady rhythm in the background. They’re also best for listening while at work.” – The Quartz playlist of music scientifically proven to soothe your election anxiety
  • “If you’re anything like me you’re sitting here confused, betrayed, sleep deprived, angry, hurt, and clutching your eighth caffeinated beverage of the day. It still feels surreal, but it’s the reality. And this election just feels like the culmination and cementing of so much negativity, so much divisiveness, so much hate, it can be easy to feel like just giving up. Don’t.” – 15 Ways To Cope With Post-Election Stress

Time to relax!

  • “Clipped to my earlobe is a tiny heart-rate monitor, linked to a Bluetooth device that is attached to my T-shirt. I’m here to try out what Fox and his colleagues have dubbed emotionally responsive gaming (ERG): computer games designed to increase players’ resilience to mental health problems by using biofeedback to monitor and reward their ability to remain calm under pressure.” – And breathe: the computer games helping kids relax
  • “Music is a known way to reduce stress levels and help you chill out, but it turns out your song choice has something to do with how much those tunes help you relax. There’s one song that science found to be a super-stress-buster, basically taking you from tense and stressed to totally chill over the course of its 8 minutes and 9 seconds.” – Most Relaxing Song Recorded Reduces Anxiety
  • “Me and Beyonce were both working on our diets, stressing out. Then the day before, we’re watching playback backstage and she’s eating a bag of Cheetos,” Mars said. “I’m like, ‘That’s what you’re doing?’ She’s like, ‘There’s nothing more we can do these last two days. It’s gonna be what it’s gonna be. So, I’m gonna enjoy this bag of Cheetos.’” – Beyoncé’s Stress Reliever: Find Out What The Singer Does To Relax
  • “As someone who is irrationally riveted to the news and political commentary, I can feel the toll this is already taking on me and on interpersonal relations. Wanting to survive without a heart attack or stroke, I thought I’d share some tips for self-care that I’ve been practicing and reading about to help others deal with this ‘Election Stress Disorder.’” – How To Survive The Stress Of The Coming Election…And Thereafter
  • “Not all stress is bad. It’s served us well since we were running around killing our dinners, picking berries and living in caves (the “fight or fight” response). But in today’s hectic and noisy world, with more “noise” from constant connection all day and night, our bodies are overwhelmed from too much: too much work, too much social media—too much of everything.” –
