PostSubject: Calm (or to relax)   Wed Aug 29, 2012 3:50 am

I am desperately going to need this website this semester. I have to take the GRE (the exam for grad school), pass two CLEP tests (to get course credits), apply to grad schools, and deal with a full course load. Itís going to be stressful, but I hope very much that it is going to be worth it. I also know itís going to stress me out, and Iíve already suffered a bad bout of anxiety before the the first week of class even got here Ė the grad school application process seems overwhelming, so I went looking for stress relievers and ways to relax and found this site.

Calm is a website that offers you the opportunity to take (at the very least) two minutes to relax, and at the most ten minutes of relaxation. Navigation is easy Ė just click start and the relaxation experience begins. You can choose to customize your experience by selecting the background image and sound, whether you want music to play, and whether or not you want guidance.

To select your background image and sound, mouse over the bottom of the page. There you will see six different images that have sounds to match. My favorite is the fifth one of the waterfall. I find that sound particularly soothing.

The two minute experience helps to teach you to stop and relax. Youíll focus on your breathing, close your eyes, and just relax. I like this when I need a quick boost of energy because it makes me feel more alert and focused after doing it. I do this one with the music off, but the guidance on.

The ten minute experience I like to use when Iím very anxious, stressed out, or angry. It makes me very relaxed and able to let go of whatís bothering me. I like to do this one with guidance and the music on rather than the babbling of the water.

They recommend using headphones, but I didnít have any around to try out. Iíve just been doing the relaxation sessions in my computer chair at home, but as I am more mobile over the course of the semester Iíll probably use it at school with my headphones.

I hope you find this is a good relaxation tool for you too! Check it out today!


Got it self in the newsletter today.

I'm not bossy, I just have better ideas.
