Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “Researchers say they’ve pinpointed a scientific explanation for why sounds from nature have such a restorative effect on our psyche: According to a new study, they physically alter the connections in our brains, reducing our body’s natural fight-or-flight instinct.” – Why Nature Sounds Help You Relax, According to Science
  • “‘Direct your attention to the movement,’ the app Sway told me as I unconsciously sped up the rhythm of my languid to-and-fro. ‘You were going too slow,’ it prompted me a few minutes later when I accidentally dozed off. After five minutes of this repetitive motion, a gentle chime sounded, and a notification popped up telling me I had met my meditation goal for the day.” – An App That Tracks Your Movement to Help You Relax, Even in the Back of a Cab
  • “‘Evolutionarily, sleep is about the dumbest thing you would ever do.’ While you are sleeping, you are rendered useless: you’re unconscious, you aren’t foraging or socializing, and you’re vulnerable to predation. Sleep should have been weeded out of living creatures long ago, but it hasn’t.” – We sleep less as we age because our brains don’t think we’re tired
  • “There are obvious ways to tamp down the stress you inflict on others, such as refraining from yelling or making sarcastic comments. But those are only the most visible ways one risks alienating one’s coworkers; to truly stop the office pathology, you have to look deeper.” – 3 Small Things Every Person Can Do to Reduce Stress in Their Office
  • “The news, of course, is a big factor of stress for many of us. Earlier this year, the American Psychological Association found that we’re more stressed than ever — and the election was to blame for a large part of that. To combat that, Blink Fitness is taking National Stress Awareness Month to switch its television programming to mood-lifting, news-free content.” – This Gym Is Turning Off The News To Combat Stress
