In the middle of a hectic week, what do you do to relax? It's not a problem for us in radio. We sit in a room and talk to ourselves for a living. But, if you are feeling a bit tense, might I recommend soaking in this 1 minute and 12 second time lapse of Idaho skies? I could personally do without the pan flute they chose for this video, but that's just me.

Mayo Clinic also thinks is a good idea. Here are benefits they list for unwinding.

Practicing relaxation techniques can reduce stress symptoms by:

  • Slowing your heart rate
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Slowing your breathing rate
  • Reducing activity of stress hormones
  • Increasing blood flow to major muscles
  • Reducing muscle tension and chronic pain
  • Improving concentration and mood
  • Lowering fatigue
  • Reducing anger and frustration
  • Boosting confidence to handle problems

I realize that they technically didn't mention staring at Idaho sky time lapses, but we know they meant us, right?
