      "I think this is a great source of information on how to manage stress in your life. My life has been rough lately, and I use this all the time for distractions, and ways to pull myself out. It has been wonderful in helping me to find a variety of ways to look and think about the things around me. Some images would be great, but don't be afraid from the chucks of text, just pick one and start reading. It was worth it to me, it will be worth it to you."

      "I think this blog provides some strong resources for stress management, especially since it's hosted by the Mayo Clinic which enhances its credibility. Unfortunately, however, the actual content of the blog posts does not focus tightly on stress management. In fact, the posts regarding success and achievement may actually engender greater stress in someone struggling in that area of their life."

It may be hard for some who have never done yoga since some of the moves involves a lot of balance, strength, and flexibility. I can see how if you are unable to do the moves you may get even more stressed at attempting them and failing. The music in the background and scenery also helps create a relaxing retreat from the daily stresses of life."

My friend suggested this meditation app and it is amazing. They are just 5 minutes each, so it doesn't take up the whole commute time, but it is the perfect amount to feel relaxed before work or when I get home. There is music as well as visualization and relaxation techniques, like imagining calm places, that helped me focus on other things. I liked how there were 3 different options, so I didn't get bored with any of them."

      "I have been struggling for a long time with my anxiety. Relaxing was difficult until I used the Sleep Talk guided meditation. Instead of using it for sleep, I just used it at random points in the day to help me when my anxiety spiked. In no time at all, I would be more relaxed than before. I didn't even have to worry about falling asleep afterward!"

If your problem is being caused by excessive ambient noise, you might find them to be a good solution, as they offer good noise reduction features relative to their size. There just might be other lifestyle changes that would be more effective in terms of actually helping you to relax. Another thing to note is that they are fairly expensive."
