Calm.com is a super-chill site for helping you to relax. I’ve been using it to stay calm under pressure at work. It has wordless, meandering music interspersed with tracks of nature sounds. On my second monitor I’ve got the serene videos set to full-screen. So that to the side of whatever demanding job is at hand, I have calming visuals — slow motion water drops, rippling water, rain falling on green leaves, fields of wildflowers with buzzing insects. It’s lovely.
And, although I haven’t sampled them, there’s also guided and timed meditations available and an app for iPhone.
