Get in the Write Mood!

July 28th, 2014

As much as you try to treat writing as a full time job, there are bound to be some days when you really don’t feel like sitting down at your desk to work. Work stresses, family problems, children and the general day to day pressures we all face can be detrimental to your creative thinking. We understand that you need to be in the right frame of mind to get some work done, so we’ve come up with a list of our favourite websites for de-stressing!

Rainymood – If you’re like me, you’ll know that there’s nothing better than a good rainy day. The sound of rain on a window is relaxing for so many people that they’ve even dedicated a website to it. Sit and watch the raindrops fall for a while, and let the sound soothe you.

Action For Happiness – Another one of my favourite websites when I need to get motivated. Action for Happiness is about creating a happier and more peaceful world, and their website is full of things that make you want to feel good and do good. In particular, their Happiness Posters never fail to cheer me up.

Gimme a Break – Gimme a Break is perfect for those workaholics who never know when it’s time to stop. This is an add-on for Google Chrome users that reminds you to take regular breaks. You can decide when to stop and what to do with your free time, and a notification will pop up when it’s time to step away from your computer.

Calm.com  – Does exactly what it says on the tin! This site encourages you to take a short meditation break for between 2 and 20 minutes, and provides nature sounds and a narrated walkthrough of what you should be doing – or not doing – to make the most of your meditation time. No one can say they don’t have two minutes to spare to calm down and reflect, so why not give it a try?
