WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Calm

How is your Monday so far? Everything going to plan? Didn’t oversleep? Trains all running okay? Managed to grab a decent breakfast? Well, good for you.

But, we reckon you’re probably in the minority. Monday has got to be the most stressful day of the week, so that’s why we’re telling you about calm.com.

Now, we realise that this is the sort of thing we’d normal pour scorn on, but, to be brutally honest, we just don’t see the harm in this, even if it is a bit naff.

You choose a 2, 10 or 20-minute “guided relaxation” and then sit back and let the waves of calm, soothing instructions waft over you.

And you know what? It works.

You might feel a little self-conscious with headphones on, staring at a picture of a tranquil lake for 20 minutes, but you’ll feel a hell of a lot better about things afterwards.

So there. It might seem naff, but if you’re having a bad day, it’s possibly worth a try.
