Stress, the word brings so much in the minds of all people. Stress has become as common as the flying birds in the sky. It is very difficult to find a place where there are no birds, and similarly it is very difficult to find a person who is not stressed. This article tries to find out if screensavers with natural backgrounds can fight stress.
Every thing causes stress. Every situation causes stress. Every thought causes stress. That is our life. How to fight this stress? Most of us feel less stressed when we go out in the outdoors, in the glory of nature. Watching flying birds, flowing water, lovely flowers, animals moving around in the jungles, and all such situations help us get relaxed and fight stress. Can screensavers that carry these images fight stress? They can if the pictures are life like and lovely.
Why does anything that looks natural make us relax? Because nature is relaxed. You will never find anything in a hurry in nature. That relaxation of nature makes us forget our stress. When we view beautiful scenes full of relaxed objects, we get relaxed ourselves. Screensavers that have images of nature such as flowers, mountains, streams, birds, clouds, sunsets, waterfalls, beaches, animals etc. make us feel good. If instead of static images, the visuals are in a video format, that is still better. That makes everything look more real. How should we use such screensavers?
Remember that screensavers were originally intended to protect the computer screens. With advent of technology, this is not needed now. You can download many screensavers with relaxing images and whenever you feel stressed, you can select any of them and play it. Watching it will slowly relax your frayed nerves. Some screensavers have beautiful music accompanying them. These can all soothe your nerves and help energize you for work again. Some screensavers also have text messages appearing along with the natural visuals. Reading such messages also helps us to re-motivate ourselves for the work ahead. Thus screensavers are a very effective method for self-relaxation, which you can use with your PC, without even moving out of your seat. Managers must try out the method of screensavers for relaxation in this highly stressed world.
