We all deserve to take a break now and then! On this guide we hope you'll find something uplifting, funny, enthralling, exhilarating, or just plain fun - something to do to take a break from work, exams, stress - so that you can emerge with a clearer mind and a refreshed perspective.
Check out each of the tabs at the top and find a treasure of sites that offer to let you immerse yourself in beautiful soundscapes, learn qigong, find new creative outlets, binge on games, or expand your mind.
