Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “Packing anxiety has inspired dozens of apps and services in recent years, many of them thriving on users’ willingness to download checklists to avoid forgetting their socks and phone chargers. But there are a growing number of other services that have gotten more personal, inviting themselves into users’ calendars and closets.” – Apps Soothe the Packing-Averse Traveler
  • “Something extraordinary occurs when we’re in the presence of a fellow sentient being. When we let go of language’s tacit conceptual constraints and judgments, we allow ourselves a kind of time travel toward our own inner animal.” – Why Close Encounters With Animals Soothe Us
  • “Crawling into bed after a long day should be a relief, but sometimes a restless mind only adds to the stress. A new Kickstarter-funded weighted blanket called Gravity is engineered to calm active nerves.” – This Weighted Blanket for Adults is Designed to Soothe Anxiety
  • “One thing that has an influence on anxiety is the food that you eat. This is because your diet can influence your brain’s production of neurotransmitters, including serotonin. Diet also influences hormonal balance. If your neurotransmitters and hormones are out of whack, you’ll likely feel worse mentally.” – These 9 Foods Soothe Anxiety
