Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “Charles Bukowski wisely once said, ‘Sundays kill more men than bombs.’” – The Science Behind the ‘Sunday Scaries’
  • “You can ‘run on empty’ for years before it hits you, but neglecting taking time for rest and relaxation can ultimately run you down and has the potential to burn you out. Just the same it can be hard to take the time for downtime. The key is to find small ways to bring it into your day-to-day routine. Once you do it’ll be a habit like any other self care routine.” – Rest And Relaxation Should Happen Every Day In Your Life. Here’s How.
  • “I’ve been meditating for over a decade, so I thought I was decently well versed in what the practice could do for me: twenty minutes of deep breathing calmed me down and helped me concentrate. I didn’t think there was much more to learn on an extended retreat. I was wrong.” – The Powerful Lifehack I Learned After 7 Days Of Silent Meditation
  • “In college, my therapist recommended I try meditation to curb my anxiety. At first, I was happy to oblige. I tried a variety of styles, from Zen meditation, which has you focus on breathing, to primordial sound mediation, which involves, well, making primordial sounds. It didn’t work.” – 6 Relaxation Hacks For People Who Hate Meditating
  • “Almost all types of meditation wake me up, making me feel more alert and attentive. And so for years I’ve searched for a meditation that specifically helps you fall asleep.” – Meditation for Insomnia and To Help You Fall Asleep
