Background Music Instrumentals – relaxdaily – B-Sides N1 …

Posted: May 27, 2018 at 12:40 pm


without comments

Relaxdaily's instrumental background music: slow and relaxing music that can be used as a soundtrack for multiple activities. The CD version is now available exclusively on: https://shop.relaxdaily.net

Use this in your relaxation music playlist, as yoga music or as meditation music. I know, this is not the ordinary music for meditation, but it works for many people. Use it as music while you're studying, doing homework, working mentally or creatively, while reading, writing, while thinking or reflecting, dreaming, reviewing, making future plans. Some use it as sleep music, though there might be even calmer sleep music out there for you....

Call it chillout, ambient, New Age, instrumental, or background music - this is not as much about a genre as it is about a feeling. A way of life. With the relaxdaily project, I try to take a little heat from our (generally) too busy lives. As a soundtrack for you, when you feel the need for some positive, cooling, liberating tunes.

Hope you enjoy the music,Have a great day,Michael (relaxdaily musician and video creator)

B-Sides N1 is a collection of 32 tracks that I created during the first 6 months of this project.

Listen to this mix (B-Sides N1) and more relaxdaily music also on Google Play, Apple Music and Spotify.

Our music is composed in-house by our team of producers, and uses binaural technology designed to relax and calm your cat. If your cat has sleeping problems or anxiety problems or is even stressed during construction, fireworks or other loud noises, you should try our music.

Relax My Cat Music on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/artist/re...

Relax My Cat's music will help to calm and soothe your cat or kitten in a variety of situations. Minimise separation anxiety, reduce hyperactivity, minimise fear of thunderstorms or fireworks, stop unwanted whining, comfort sick or injured cats and calm your cat on car journeys - Relax My Cat does it all!

Our music is based on feline vocal communication and environmental sounds that pique the interest of cats; it is written in a musical language that is uniquely designed to appeal to the domestic cat. All of the music is recorded on traditional instruments and the human voice. No actual cat, mouse, or bird calls are used (although it may sound like it).

Relax My Cats music is unique, and will help in a variety of situations as a substitute for medication. We have helped thousands of cats and kittens worldwide to sleep and reduce their anxiety. Music therapy for your cat can keep them calm, happy and healthy, and it is a great way to rehabilitate rescue cats - or just get your kitten or cat used to their new home.

Being re-homed is an incredibly stressful time for cats - as they have to get used to a lot of different sights and sounds, as well as their new family and any other pets in the household. We recommend that you play Relax My Cat during this time, and it will help reduce their heart rate and relax them while they explore their new surroundings. No more whining kittens - they will get used to your home in no time at all with the help of Relax My Cat's music!

You may be litter training, which can be a stressful time for both dog and parent, and our music will soothe your kitten making your life easier. When listening to Relax My Cat you will notice your kitten start to relax, and get more used to their tray, or similarly if you are training them to get used to their travel box.

It is also very useful to calm your cat during car journeys - which many kittens find a stressful time. They may associate it with vets visits - so we recommend playing Relax My Cat's music before and after visits to the vet to reduce their stress.

The worst time of year for over 60% of cats is Firework season - the loud bangs are really scary for them and you may notice a huge change in your kitty during this time. Thunderstorms are another difficult time for cats, with the majority of cats being very scared of storms because of the unfamiliar loud noises. Relax My Cat is the perfect solution to this anxiety inducing situation - just play our music to reduce your cats anxiety and make them feel safe.

The most common problem we hear is separation anxiety in cats - being separated from you can cause severe anxiety in many cats. Relax My Cats music has improved thousands of cases of separation anxiety and noisy felines all over the world.

Our music will help cats of all breeds and ages to stay relaxed and keep calm. We are also on a number of social media platforms - so join our community and let's chat! We love to hear about and see pictures of your kitties!

Late Summer in Winston-Salem would not be complete without a leisurely walk through Reynolda Gardens of Wake Forest University. The variety of flowers are too numerous to mention. And the vibrance and intensity of the colors of the flowers are spectacular. I hope that you enjoy the beauty of the flowers and the music.

Be sure and watch it in HD if you have a high speed connection.

Winston-Salem, North Carolina has a wonderful little park called Runnymede that has been known for many years for its beautiful Azaleas. Springtime has not really arrived until you have taken a slow drive through the park to visually soak in the deep colors of these beautiful blossoms.

Be sure and watch it in HD if you have a high speed connection.

Come stroll through the beautiful Rose Garden at Reynolda Gardens in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Reynolda Gardens is part of Wake Forest University and is open to the public. There are ninety varieties of award-winning, All-America roses in this rose garden.When I was growing up in East Tennessee my mom always had beautiful flowers growing around our home. When I come to Reynolda Gardens and stroll through these beautiful flowers, as I often do, I am reminded of those pleasant memories back home. It's those pleasant memories and experiences that inspire me to write the kind of music that I write. While you are walking through these beautiful roses with me on this video you'll be hearing my relaxing music in the background. The song is May Flowers from the Springtime Reflections album, arranged and performed by Gary Prim.There's also something that makes this video very special. You can view this video just as it is -- or, you can see these roses in 3-D, in three dimension. All you need to do is simply take a pair of sunglasses and hold one of the darkened lenses to your right eye only -- leaving your left eye uncovered -- and watch the video. And when you do, most folks will see the roses in 3-D -- almost as if you were right here with me strolling through the rose garden. For the technically curious, the technique is called Pulfrich 3D. You can read more about Pulfrich 3D here:

THE STORY BEHIND "RACHEL'S SONG"

Then in 1983, some very dear friends of ours had a beautiful baby girl named Rachel and they asked my wife and me to be her godparents. Of course we accepted. A few months later, Rachel was Christened at her mother's home church. At the very end of the Christening service I got the inspiration toplay my song on the beautiful grand piano on the platform at the fron of the church. I asked Rachel's parents if they thought it would be OK, and they said, "Sure." Everyone sat back down and I proceeded to play. The music seemed to touch everyone and before the song was over there was not a dry eye in the church, including mine. At the conclusion of the song I turned and announced that from now on the song will be known as "Rachel's Song." For the first time the song had a name and it seemed to be the perfect fit.

Dave Combs, a native of Erwin, Tennessee, grew up in a family that enjoyed making music and taking photographs. Both of his parents and his grandmother Combs played the piano, and Dave's father was skillful at the technique of color tinting black and white photographs. So, if Dave's hands were not busy playing the piano, they were often holding an early Kodak box camera or looking at beautiful photos in a National Geographic Magazine. While in college Dave took an aerial photography course, further stimulating and broadening his interest in photography. Also during his college years, Dave played the piano and served as choir director for his home church in Erwin. After college he moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina where he served as Minister of Music at a church, worked as a computer programmer, and further developed his skill and interest in photography. Dave's first musical composition, Rachel's Song, was recorded by Gary Prim in 1986 and continues to be a popular instrumental standard around the world. The beautiful dogwood photograph on the cover of that album was taken by Dave. Since that time, Dave has written, produced, and released several additional instrumental albums of beautiful and inspiring melodies, and most of the album covers carry his equally beautiful and inspiring photography. An article written by Dave about how music has changed his life and touched the lives of millions of people appeared in the September 1994 issue of Guideposts magazine. In the past several years many of Dave's beautiful photographs have appeared in the Blowing Rocket weekly newspaper in Blowing Rock, NC. Dave and his wife, Linda, live in Winston-Salem.

Virtual reality alleviates pain, anxiety for pediatric patients – Stanford Medical Center Report

Posted: September 7, 2017 at 5:44 pm


without comments

The use of VR is a novel experience for many of the patients at Packard Childrens, said Veronica Tuss, a child life specialist with the hospitals Child Life and Creative Arts Department. The departments members engage patients in age-appropriate activities to help normalize their time in the hospital. Through providing education and procedural support, they play a key role in helping to decrease patients stress levels prior to procedures. VR is often so unfamiliar that it is instantly engaging and incredibly distracting, Tuss says. If Im preparing a child for their very first IV, and they share with me that they dont want to see whats happening procedurally, I know I need a distraction that is visually engaging. With VR, an often-intimidating setting suddenly becomes this really cool thing or place that they get to explore. It can minimize the experience of getting the IV to the point that we may actually turn a negative experience into a positive one.

The hospitalwide VR rollout is the latest evolution in distraction-therapy techniques pioneered by Rodriguez and fellow anesthesiologist Thomas Caruso, MD, who co-founded CHARIOT with Rodriguez. In 2015, the duo introduced the Bedside Entertainment and Relaxation Theater, which uses video projection to allow patients undergoing surgery to watch movies, music videos and other entertainment on a large screen attached directly to their gurney up to the moment they enter the operating room.

Earlier this year, CHARIOT launched Sevo the Dragon, an interactive video game projected on the BERT screen that takes a necessary part of anesthesia breathing anesthesia medicine through a mask and transforms it into a game. While BERT is great for younger children, the VR experience is becoming a useful tool, especially for older children, said Rodriguez and Caruso, both of whom are clinical assistant professors of anesthesiology, perioperative and pain medicine at the School of Medicine. The VR goggles escalate the immersive entertainment experience to a 360-degree view of relaxing scenery and engaging games.

For patients as young as 6, VR distraction therapy is being used in Packard Childrens Bass Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases, short stay unit and emergency department; the vascular access, imaging, ambulatory orthopedics and general surgery clinics; and the perioperative unit. It will be rolled out by the end of the year to the hospitals acute care floor units, Stanford Childrens Healths ambulatory surgery clinics and even the labor and delivery unit. The goal is for all of the hospitals 29 child life specialists to be trained on the use of VR goggles by that time. In addition, pediatricians at the Stanford Childrens Health Bayside Medical Group-Berkeley clinic will be implementing VR technology during immunizations for patients who are fearful of needles.

Children shouldnt grow up being afraid to go to the doctor to have a shot, but certain experiences can cause phobias that last into adulthood. Needle phobia is a common example of that, and its the primary reason adults avoid important immunizations like flu shots, Caruso said. Now, when patients get a shot while they are wearing VR goggles, they are reporting only limited levels of pain, if any.

The CHARIOT team has medically customized the VR headsets to better fit kid-sized heads with an easy-to-clean strap and a disposable screen liner for immunocompromised patients. Sound capabilities allow the volume to be adjusted so the care team can communicate with patients during procedures, and each headset is accompanied by a smartphone preloaded with customized content specific to children in the hospital.

The CHARIOT team works carefully to select games that require limited head and arm movement so kids seated in bed can play without turning their bodies or getting tangled in IV lines and other wires, and so patients with arm bandages or casts can still participate. CHARIOT also works with companies to adapt commercially available games for the health care setting, removing themes of injury or death and eliminating game over termination so that the distraction of the game doesnt go away at the moment patients need it the most.

Working with Silicon Valley-based software engineers, Rodriguez and Caruso are also developing original VR content specifically created for the pediatric patient population. Their first game, Spaceburgers, was developed with Juno VR and is specifically designed for children in a hospital setting. It transports patients to outer space and immerses them in relaxing music as they zap space objects including spaceburgers that fly toward them. It allows health care providers to adjust the cognitive load according to the patients needs, meaning they can use a controller to increase the level of distraction during the most stressful parts of a procedure, like right before a needle poke.

Research is underway to further quantify the impact VR has on the levels of pain and anxiety that patients experience during vascular access procedures, including blood draws and port access, by comparing the experiences of patients who have used VR with those who have not. Preliminary results have shown that kids tend to be more cooperative when they are engaged in VR, with less movement, less fear and sometimes even lower pain scores, which can make the experience more positive for the provider and the child, Rodriguez said.

The impact of VR can last beyond the immediacy of a procedure, Caruso added. Having a less terrifying experience when you go to the hospital can change your behavior for weeks after a procedure, he said. Things like sleep regression or acting out during the recovery period are associated with distressing perioperative experiences, but by using VR and reducing the fear and anxiety that kids experience before a procedure, we hope to positively impact their behaviors after the procedure.

Now, the CHARIOT team is researching the impact of passive VR experiences, such as watching fish float by, compared with the impact of active games, such as zapping spaceburgers, to understand whether the content itself impacts patients reported pain and anxiety levels in the clinical setting. Packard Childrens is one of the first hospitals to integrate the use of VR as a potential method of anxiety reduction into patients electronic medical records, which is helping care teams determine which content is most effective for certain populations, according to patient age, procedure and content type.

Among our patients, there is a subgroup who do well during a procedure with or without VR, a subgroup with minor anxiety where VR helps slightly and they enjoy it, and a subgroup where it makes a profound difference, Rodriguez said. These patients sometimes come in for a procedure with a 10-out-of-10 level of anxiety and fear, but when we implement VR during a procedure, they report stress levels of 2-, 1- and in some cases 0-out-of-10. Those are the patients we are really targeting with these VR interventions.

CHARIOTs hospitalwide VR rollout is on track to be fully realized in the new Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital Stanford, which is set to open in December, and will continue to expand with additional technologies.

Our ultimate goal is to take a personalized approach to care by adapting and developing technological interventions for each childs needs, Rodriguez said. New content and more VR headsets will be available in the new hospital, including additional headsets specifically for patients with chronic conditions who are using VR as a relaxation technique to escape the hospital environment. For patients who are interested in watching their IV placements and minor procedures as they happen, CHARIOT has recently introduced augmented reality headsets a technology that layers visual enhancements atop existing reality. Their first AR experience shows two avatars demonstrating the process of peripheral IV placement. The goal is to expand the availability of AR programming in the new hospital. A new volunteer program intended to support child life specialists with patient distraction and VR headset setup is being implemented within perioperative services and will expand in the new building to support the broader deployment of distraction-based technologies.

In addition, Rodriguez and Caruso are in discussions with local technology companies about how to share these technologies beyond Packard Childrens. Our overarching mission is to help as many children as we can and make our discoveries available to other people and other hospitals, Caruso said. Having the hardware and software tools at the ready would make this a reality.

Rodriguez hopes that the program will continue to improve patients experiences as it evolves. If you can take someone and alleviate their fear, it makes everything were doing worthwhile, he said.

Juno VR LLC worked with CHARIOT to develop Spaceburgers. GameHearts LLC worked with CHARIOT to develop Sevo the Dragon. MineyMoe worked with CHARIOT to develop the augmented reality IV insertion instructional experience. Headsets, smartphones and funding have been provided by Starlight Childrens Foundation, thanks to support from Star Wars: Force for Change, Google and Niagara Cares. Additional funding came from the Auxiliaries Endowment at Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital Stanford, Bank of America and The Traverse Foundation.

El Ten Eleven Unusable Love (feat. Emile Mosseri) – mxdwn.com

Posted: at 5:44 pm


without comments

Henry Ehlebracht September 6th, 2017 - 5:29 PM

This new four track EP Unusable Love from El Ten Eleven and Emile Mosseri is a crisp and focused effort full of laid back organic tracks that fit very well together. El Ten Eleven have released a number of well-received projects over the past 10 years with six full length albums and a couple EPs under their belt. This is only a small taste compared to an album, but El Ten Eleven still have the ability to deliver something fresh and exciting despite the short length. Something that immediately sets this apart from their other projects is the addition of Emile Mosseri from The Dig. If youre a fan of either El Ten Eleven or Emile Mosseri, definitely check this out.

Unusable Love is the first track on the EP and it sets the mood for whats to come throughout the project. Organic guitar strings mix with a slow, brooding electronic beat and grumbling synths to create a reflective and melancholy feeling. While the lyrics convey these feelings clearly, the instrumentals also make this a very relaxing song. In contrast to the melancholy lyrics of Unusable Love, Im Right Here has a tender touch to its lyrics. More acoustic strings blend together wonderfully with the spacey effects on the singers voice and the great bass line. With great singing, lyrics and production this is definitely one of the standout tracks from this album.

In contrast to the stellar second track, Shes a Live One falls a bit flat. The uninspired vocals at the beginning of the track really drag the energy of the song down. The dull voice of the vocalist at the beginning of the track just doesnt match the image that the lyrics paint. On the other hand, something that this song does well is how its intensity builds on itself naturally. El Ten Elevens choice of instruments and production techniques really shine here. Finally Delicate Friend is a return to form because of its strong lead guitar melody and the great vocals brought to the table. You can really hear the strain and emotion in the singers voice which elevates this song above Shes a Live One.

All in all this is a successful collaboration, but there are some caveats. One annoying thing on the album is the mix on a couple of the songs. There is a grainy texture in the background that sticks out when you play certain songs loudly like in the car stereo. One other problem is that for a short project like an EP these songs are a bit too similar sounding with a vibe that doesnt change for most of the tracks on here. It would have been great to hear more versatility from this group of artists. That being said, this is definitely a project worth checking out if you like chill, relaxing electronic music with an acoustic touch.

Labor needs relaxation – Opinion – The Daily Reporter – Coldwater … – Coldwater Daily Reporter

Posted: at 5:44 pm

Nancy Hastings nhastings@hillsdale.net nhastingsHDN

Nearly all Americans understand that relaxation time is essential to good health, yet most of us dont spend nearly enough time unwinding.

After just observing a relaxing Labor Day weekend in southern Indiana, I pondered the origins of work. Being able to do some work remotely was still an option.

Work has, after all, been around since the creation of heaven and earth. Quite simply, God worked and created man to work. In the fall of man, work was not a punishment. God cursed the land to produce thorns and weeds, but didnt curse the work. Unfortunately, most Americans do.

Many Americans work continuously in jobs they dont enjoy. Often our work can be full of thorns, but we wouldnt grow if we didnt have adversity to overcome. When we like our work, it's rewarding, but breaks are important.

So yes, taking time to relax is paramount. After all, God rested on the seventh day after creating the universe. A Sunday sermon topic out of Ecclesiastes covered how the sleep of the laborer is sweet work in harmony with God and work is a blessing, but it requires rest.

While our society acknowledges that kicking back is indispensable, we dont seem to be practicing what we preach. Indeed, 99 percent of Americans think relaxation is important, yet they actually spend less than five percent of their day relaxing, according to an independent research study.

The goal of the research was to better understand the latest trends about how many of us actually relax and how we go about doing it.

Nearly half of Americans report theyre more stressed than their significant other, with a whopping 82 percent of men indicating that their partner is the stressed out one. Finding ways to de-stress is the key.

Music topped the list of relaxation techniques for those surveyed, with 48 percent reporting music helps them take it easy. Interestingly, only 18 percent find exercise is a good relaxation tool.

For me, yoga works wonders when its time to decompress. Stretching out the trapezius (extrinsic back muscle) or the latissimus dorsi (another extrinsic back muscle) also brings me rejuvenation.

Overall, laughter is really my way to decompress. When Im feeling the walls close in, I find humor in the situation and suddenly its not as important or as earth shattering as what I initially thought. Ive found it prevents burnout, irritability, back pain and the desire to overeat.

After hanging out with extended family and friends over the Labor Day weekend, laughter was my medicinal tonic. It can also help when giving advice to a friend dealing with caregiver stress for whose aging parents are facing the autumn season of their lives. Many baby boomers face stress because they are dealing with caregiver overload from taking care of parents and then are parents themselves.

Even so, the studys most surprising findings were that relaxation causes 62 percent of parents to feel guilty and that nearly one third of Americans surveyed reported being stressed out simply by the thought of relaxing!

Many of us suffer with the inability to take the time and just be. There is a such a strong temptation to fill our lives, (and our kids lives) with activities, so that no time is wasted. Weve become very efficient at being efficient.

When it all feels like too much, it usually means it is. That is when surrender is the best answer, and that is when it's time to just be.

When writers experience writers block, when a pregnant woman is put on bed-rest, when an athlete tears a muscle, when creativity juices stop flowing, its ones body telling them its just all too much at that given moment. When this happens, just stop. Theres always tomorrow.

There is nothing wrong with a little down time every now and then for anyone.

Lianas Tea Shop served its first pot on August 13, with an opening ceremony featuring Havering Mayor Cllr Linda Van Den Hende and four other councillors.

Owner Jenny Thompson, who named the business after her middle name, told the Recorder: I finally wanted to get my dream achieved.

I wanted to do something different.

And the tea room, beautifully set in Langtons House, Billet Lane, Hornchurch, has had a successful month, with lots of customers making advance bookings for September.

Jenny said: When people walk in, it is a very relaxing atmosphere, just to come in and listen to vintage music, which isnt over bearing.

The shop is beautifully decorated, with floral cushions and vintage ribbons tying the jars holding the tea leaves.

The tea sold includes the classics of English breakfast and Earl Grey, as well as rarer fruit flavoured specialties and cinnamon chai flavours.

Jenny also serves sandwiches and homemade cakes, which are available in vegan and gluten free varieties.

We also take donations for customers to be able to feed the ducks in the courtyard, she added.
