Time to relax!

  • “Sure, this ancient practice has been around for hundreds of years, but our modern society is just now figuring out what benefits it has for our health. And one of those benefits is to our immune system – the system in our bodies that protects us from developing dangerous diseases and illnesses. Yoga has an absolutely incredible effect on our immune system, basically giving us a huge boost in that department of our bodies.” – 6 Ways Yoga Improves Your Immune System
  • “On the flip side, good posture has positive effects in almost every aspect of your life. Apart from looking good, posture can also affect your energy and stress levels during the day. In turn, it can improve your productivity, boost your confidence, and uplift your mood.” – Four Simple Habits That Improve Your Posture
  • “A guru of relaxation, Bob Ross possesses the calm, singsong voice of an angel. His dulcet tone and meandering conversational style puts viewers at absolute ease as he gradually constructs a picaresque landscape. Bob Ross is not only the soothing cup of hot cocoa at the end of a stressful day, he’s the ideal seasonal antidote to that pesky old grinch known as insomnia.” – Netflix’s ‘Chill With Bob Ross’ Is The Most Relaxing Show You’ll Never Finish Watching
  • “Now scientists at Stanford University may have uncovered for the first time why taking deep breaths can be so calming. The research, on a tiny group of neurons deep within the brains of mice, also underscores just how intricate and pervasive the links are within our body between breathing, thinking, behaving and feeling.” – Why Deep Breathing May Keep Us Calm
  • “There are two types of people: those who can sleep through anything, and those of us who hate those people. My husband falls asleep before his head even touches the pillow.

Time to relax!

  • “I’ve mentioned it many times before, but while I like to relax, I prefer to keep my brain stimulated with some challenge so it doesn’t turn into mush. And while I feel like I’ve tried every puzzle game out there, I’m still always looking out for more, and Polycolor is one that intrigued me when I saw it on the App Store. After spending some time with it, I can say that it’s definitely a clever puzzle to unwind with.” – Color Your Way to Zen in Polycolor’s Relaxing Puzzles
  • “Dan Bell proves he’s the Ken Burns of suburban decay with his beautifully shot and narrated Dead Mall Series. The Rehoboth Mall episode above is especially interesting because he interviews one of two remaining tenants, husband and wife tailors working on the periphery of the abandoned food court. Dan’s eye for detail and music choices are sublime. It’s the sort of footage that historians will cite decades hence, it’s that good.” – Watch these soothing tours of barely-open malls
  • “[Researchers] at the Stanford University School of Medicine looked at which neurons within the brain stem are responsible for regulating different types of breathing — regular, yawning, sighing, and so on. After searching through public databases, researchers identified these neurons by the process of elimination: ‘knocking out’ a single type of neuron in laboratory mice and analyzing how it affected their breathing.” – Study Reveals The Best Way To De-Stress & It’s Actually Pretty Simple
  • “Rhythmic breathing has a mental effect, says Dr. Wei, who co-authored ‘The Harvard Medical School Guide to Yoga.’ It draws your attention away from what is stressing you and toward what you’re feeling, which has a calming effect. In addition, you trigger positive psychological changes.” – A Harvard-trained psychologist shows you how to destress at work in just 2 minutes
