I often feel the need to get away, and watching short videos sometimes is just the cure I need for writers block or the doldrums. When faced with a problem that I can’t solve, I need to take a step back, regroup, destress, and relax a bit. Under deadline, it is not possible to take long breaks or often even leave the office, so I have found new ways to de-stress and relax, put myself in another place for a few minutes. Videos are a great way to do this, I have a few favorites for relaxation that give me just the little break I need to recharge and get going again.
