Given the events of the last several days, I’m sure a lot of you are feeling pretty wrung out right now. I certainly am.
One thing I do to get a brief respite from all the terribleness is to flip off the news (which I generally have playing in the background on the TV as I work, probably a bad idea to begin with), fire up the YouTube app on Xfinity, and put on the most extreeeeeeemely relaxing videos I know of, which for me tend to be hours-long videos of sunny beaches with no sound other than the wind and waves and the occasional seagull. When I don’t feel like looking at a beach I turn to videos of woodland streams or rain falling peacefully in the woods.
These videos are good to silently contemplate for a few minutes, or simply to have on in the background. They also make perfect aural backdrops for a meditation session.
So today I though I’d share a few of the videos that have become my standbys when I need a few quiet moments.
If you’ve got any relaxing videos or relaxation/distraction techniques that work for you, feel free to share them below.
