First, take a breath. Life in Bangladesh comes hand in hand with stress, but that doesn’t mean you have to remain unbalanced.

Do find yourself getting overwhelmed by traffic and construction noises? Notice how a walk in the park or on your rooftop garden has the opposite effect? This is because the sounds of nature can have a demonstrable positive affect on your wellbeing. While it’s (usually) not possible to find a forest to bathe in at work, Earth.fm allows you tune into natural soundscapes from wild places for a quick nature fix when you need it. Better yet, Earth.fm is also working with partners to support wildland restoration projects all over the globe.
When your head feels jammed, games are a great way to unwind. Unpacking, which has been described as a “non-action game,” is delightfully retro experience that turns the chore of unpacking boxes into a meditative puzzle—with a little soothing home decor thrown in, too.

What’s a more Bangali way to chill out and destress than with a good ol’ cup of cha. It’s safe to say that for most people stuck in the city, a tea habit can become a personality trait. Elevate your tea game and turn it into a true wellness ritual with Steeped, a handy app that offers step-by-step instructions for a wide range of brewing methods and tea types.
