Back to School Stress?

via Technology Tidbits by Twyla Felty

The adrenalin that has kept teachers running since school started in August is beginning to wear thin, and it is now time to refocus, regroup and re-energize! One way to do this is just to relax….seriously, just relax and breathe! There is even a app to help with that of course: Relax Melodies.

Relax Melodies is a white noise app with sounds that can be mixed and saved for meditation, sleep, and study. These sound mixes can be set to multiple alarms There is a free version with 46 sounds and a $2.99 paid version with 94 sounds . I always start with the freebies, but with this app, I bumped up to the paid version because it allows you to play the sounds while using other apps–even while playing your music.
My favorite mixes include classical music with urban rain and thunder.

This app would be great for use in the classroom to create the perfect tone for studying/work and is a cheap way to bring the outdoor sounds to that windowless classroom.

This app was recommended by my son, Joshua. As an architecture student in college, he spends long hours on projects in common areas but really requires solitude  With a good set of headphones, this app allows him to disconnect from the noisy environment and focus on his work.
