Inspired by this post, I’ve been thinking a lot about what helps me disconnect. There’s a surprisingly long list–which I’m then terrible at using when I need to decompress. (Those in italics are from the original post)
Tonematrix: click the boxes. Listen. Repeat as necessary.
Really calming gifs. I must have stared at the second one for at least five minutes.
Do Nothing For Two Minutes: Bad at relaxing? This one will get on your case if you don’t stop doing things.
Fly a Line: Move your mouse about–and then set a timer, because I got lost here for a while.
Cassini: made entirely of photos from Cassini, an epic journey around Saturn, accompanied by appropriately dramatic music. [Epilepsy warning-some flashing]
Pale Blue Dot. Press play, close eyes.
And more Sagan, converted to an unbelievable choral suite.
Calming Manatee would like you to know that you’re great.
The Thoughts Room: put your stress here.
Paint a Nebula–just what it sounds like.
Information is Beautiful–breathtaking infographics.
