Need help relaxing your mind? This video from the Monterey Bay Aquarium is sure to soothe any tensions. It features 12 straight hours of colorful Pacific fishes, soft corals, and anemones from the aquarium’s Splash Zone. It also brings back memories of the old After Dark screensaver.
THE BEST Relaxing
TheCrafsMan SteadyCraftin is known as much for his soothing voice as he is for his crafting skills. He also posted a short video to help you manage your anxiety through a simple and methodical breathing technique. Memorize and use it any time you’re feeling stressed. (Thanks Rob!)
A fan of woodworker Mr. Zhou sent him a block of colorful material and requested that he use it to carve a chess piece. The process of turning the piece on the lathe is quite satisfying, especially watching the shavings as they go flying. The block appears to be wood that’s been infused with pigments, but we’re not sure.
This unique, illuminated wall art helps create a calm and relaxing environment. It features a multi-layered geometric design laser-cut from thin sheets of wood fiberboard. The colorful LED edge lighting really makes the patterns pop, and can be set to change colors. Available in 23.2″ H x 19.3″ W and 26.4″ H x 23.2″ W sizes.
Do you love Pokémon? Then put on your headphones and crank up the volume for an immersive audio session with Pikachu. The adorable, electrically-charged pocket monster romps around the living room, fills our ears with adorable noises for 15 minutes, and eventually doses off.
Feeling stressed or anxious? There’s nothing quite so calming as the sound of a rain shower. To help us unwind our minds, UK designer Jez Burrows put together a compilation of soothing rain sounds captured entirely from video games. Since this clip is titled “Part I,” we imagine a follow up is due if you need more rain.
For some people, white noise helps you relax, while others prefer the sound of a rainstorm. But if you’re like us, that rain is accompanied by the sounds of the Blade Runner soundtrack by Vangelis. This 8-hour track made by Cole Phelps offers the perfect ambient background for unwinding your mind and releasing your tension.
We can think of few more relaxing ways to spend a day than floating on a quiet lake, or in a lazy hammock. The MelloShip combines both of these “activities” into one. Lie back, relax, and steer the solar-powered vessel via remote control. Holds two hammocks, so bring a friend!
