Life, as we all know, can get stressful. School, work, friends, family, everything just starts to add up after a while, and sometimes we forget to stop and smell the roses. Heck, sometimes we don’t have the time to stop and smell the roses. But a new trend of “relaxing” websites has gained popularity, and calm.com is the latest one.
Many of you might be familiar with the Quiet Place Project, or their affiliate, the Thoughts Room. Both are designed to de-stress and create a distraction-free environment. Calm.com differs in that, instead of being immersed in silence or soft music like the others, it plays soothing nature sounds while a voice walks you through breathing exercises. You can choose from seven different locations, and whether or not you want the vocal guidance. (There’s even a choice for music, if you so desire.)
What I like so much about this site in comparison to the others is that you don’t have to think at all. With the other sites, they make you think about relaxing or have you admit to what’s stressing you out or making you sad. With calm.com, all you have to do is watch a pretty nature scene, listen to sound of the wind or the crashing of the waves, and breathe.
Do you have a favorite “relaxing” site, lovelies? Would calm.com help you de-stress?
