Everyone has anxiety. Some more than others, but I’m sure if I took a vote 100% of you would admit that you’ve been stressed or nervous or just generally anxious for no reason at one point in your life. For me, lately, my anxiety has come from a pressure from the looming July NaNo Camp, and the still-unfinished first draft of my other novel.
So – the question is, how do we deal with it? Stress balls, screaming into a pillow, writing in a stream of consciousness just BLHERRGG at an empty page (you know you’ve done it), hitting something, the possibilities are endless. There’s really not one thing that works for every person, but I found something yesterday that might be a step in the right direction.
It’s called Silk, at the website can be found here. There’s also an app for $2.99, and I think it’s worth the small expense. Basically, you just draw vectors in a rainbow of colors! They also have this spa-type music playing, best listened to with headphones. Use this app for five minutes and I guarantee a calm will come over you.
Yeah, it’s childish. I’m attracted to shiny web-like things. I like rainbows.
Here are two of my creations:
Aren’t they mesmerizing?
