Stuck At A Computer All Day? 9 Relaxation Websites That Will Soothe Your Soul

Stuck At A Computer All Day? 9 Relaxation Websites That Will Soothe Your Soul
Advertising

Despite having the world at our fingertips via the internet and social media, sitting at a desk can still be boring. Writing daily expense reports or doing research quickly makes your eyelids heavy. Then again, maybe you’re the opposite of bored. Maybe you’re endlessly scrolling through walls of text and raising your tension levels. Either way, sitting at a desk and staring at a computer all day can be draining. To counter that, it’s easy to try and distract ourselves using the web.

However, if you look even harder, you can find helpful distractions to use at your disposal, too. So instead of drumming a hole in your desk, why not try browsing the following websites for useful tools to help you find a little relaxation?

1. Calming Manatee

Cats aren’t the only friendly animals online responsible for stress-relief. This site offers a double dose of relaxation and mood lifting. It features various images of manatees paired with cute and cheerful sayings. This is a pretty simple site but can also make for a great pick-me-up in the middle of a long, hard day.

2. Playster

Perhaps background noise isn’t what you need to de-stress. If that’s the case, Playster offers a few options on how to clear your mind. Offering books in both text and audio form and movies and games, ranging from retro to educational, Playster engages your brain in a different way. An added feature to this site is that you can create a unique login (or use an existing social account) so you can have your games or playlists saved and ready to go on-the-go.

3. Get Relaxed

This option requires no effort from you whatsoever. The primary focus is a slideshow filled with gorgeous and soothing backdrops that you can add various soundscapes to. And don’t fret about choosing the photos, there’s an auto-setting that causes them to change automatically. You’ll feel like you’re reconnecting with nature.

4. Weave Silk

If being still isn’t your idea of relaxing, you can try another creative outlet. Art is one of the most common methods of getting rid of stress and anxiety. Weave Silk operates on a black background and is something like digital watercolor painting. The longer you use your cursor paintbrush, the more detailed your image becomes. This site also offers an extra perk in that your designs are mirrored and create organic randomized patterns.

5. Calm

Calm is an obvious choice in any search for a website meant to soothe. You choose from three different time options (two, ten, or twenty minutes), depending on how long and how far you need to take your break. It operates on the idea of guided meditation, using a variety of ambient backgrounds (bodies of water like the ocean or lakes) and gentle sounds to help calm your nerves.

6. A Soft Murmur

This site lets you drown out the noise in your head with a series of ambient noises. By making your own playlist, you’ll be able to only hear what you want. You can choose up to ten different sounds and play them all at once, or just choose your favorites.

7. Blah Therapy

Sometimes, you need a little more human interaction in order to get your tension out. This site offers the option to get it all off your chest while remaining anonymous. It also lets you be an outlet. Blah Therapy allows you to either be on the couch listening, or on the other end ranting. You can vent your built-up frustrations to a stranger or offer an ear to someone else.

8. The Quiet Place

Imagine if you weren’t trapped at your desk, where would you go? Save the tropical vacations for your daydreams and use this site for a shorter, but equally effective break. For thirty seconds, all you have to do is breathe and take in the positive messages on your screen. If you don’t have much time between meetings or sending emails, this is a great way to find your center and get a small piece of your time back.

9. Do Nothing for 2 Minutes

As the name suggests, this is literally a chance to stop, take a breath, and get a couple minutes to unwind and recover. While this seems deceptively simple, being still is a hard thing in a time when our hands are always busy with some form of technology. Just sit back, enjoy the sound of crashing waves, and you’ll be amazed at how relaxed you feel.
