Creative Website of the Week - Calm.com
Need a break from the craziness, the hurry-scurry of your day? Want some peace and calm as a way to energize and rekindle your creative spirit? Go to www.calm.com even for a few minutes and find yourself being rejuvenated and relaxed--right from the front page of this website. Although you can subscribe, there is plenty here that you can access free of charge. Live action meditation vignettes - a crackling fireplace, evening crickets, falling snow, waves lapping upon a sandy shore, a mystical forest with a running brook and many more, all bring you right out of a state of tension and encourage a mindful moment or two. Simple, yet effective, there is a "breath bubble" that leads you through deep breathing - an excellent way to help calm and gather yourself.
Calm.com was co-founded by Michael Acton-Smith and Alex Tew whose mission it is to make the world happier and healthier (the same mission as Creative Moments Studio's!) through the practice of mindfulness meditation.
The founders have even created a free subscription for all K-12 teachers to use within their classrooms to help their students develop mindful meditation practices to help them grow academically, personally and mindfully.
I could say a lot more about calm.com, but it's best if you just try it now yourself. I highly recommend it. It will be a calm space in your day today and can help you to open a space for your creative pursuits!
