An interactive timeline that will put your day in perspective.
Two. Do Nothing For Two Minutes
Take a break from everything and loosen with the sound of swings for two minutes. If you budge your mouse or touch your keyboard, the clock starts over.
Trio. Weave Silk
This interactive art generator plays calming sounds as you get lost in the art that you built.
Four. The Thoughts Room
Put down your devices and just sit with your thoughts for a moment. Unload the things that are weighing on you into the “status box” and they “will vanish by literally bursting into thousands of starlets so you can ultimately find some rest.”
Five. Rainy Mood
Just rain. Just sit and listen to the rain.
6. The Tone Matrix
Click on the squares and a lovely little jingle will emerge.
7. Eel Smack!
You never knew you needed this but you do!, Just scroll over this man’s face and smack him with an eel. It’s even better in slo-mo and switch sides!,
8. Picasso Head
Have joy building some Picasso figures and reveling in Cubism.
9. Paint a Nebula
An exceptionally beautiful site that makes the universe your coloring book.
Take a minute to party like it’s 1993? Always.

Just some cat’s bouncin’. The background color switches and it’s kind of hard to look away. Love.

Lowercase letters have never been this joy!,
13. Paint Like Jackson Pollock
Channel your internal abstract Expressionist and see if you can make a masterpiece.

Just let it all fall away.
17. The Chance Mars Rover

Legitimate. The Quiet Place
With all the notifications and alerts you get a day, it’s almost hard to recall what being disconnected feels like. Sometimes you just need a quiet place.

I’m not sure what’s so captivating about watching this line go after your mouse but the perspective shifts are hypnotizing.
20. Endless Interestingness
An endless stream of beautiful pictures found on Flickr.
21. Nulling the Void
Observe things explode to null the void? I don’t know if this is what Nietzsche had in mind. Bloop.
22. Man in the Dark
It’s a bit ghoulish, but there’s something about this floating man that’s also soothing. Perhaps it’s the faint reminder of your own mortality ebbing against the screen that makes it hard to look away? Or the pretty color blends?
23. Lucio Fontana
This website uses the artwork of Rafael Rozeendal for an enchanting yet eerie effect.
24. Particle Knot Sequencer

Make the linky things link up into blobs.
26. Liquid Particles
Interact with the mouse to form and disrupt particle clusters.

I don’t know. It’s just like this one song and these random things. But it’s so beautiful.
That awesome feeling when you witness the Domino chain unfurl.
29. Pointer Pointer
An pic will show up with someone pointing to the place you last left your cursor.
30. BYO Kaleidoscope
Build your own Kaleidoscope!,
31. Koalas to the Max
Click on the circles and they get smaller and smaller and smaller. Just interactive pointless infinity.
32. Into Time
Click on the screen to create smaller and smaller rectangles, so yes, more interactive pointless infinity. Except this time with a little more color!,
33. The Kanye Zone
OK, so this is certainly not as soothing as listening to rain, but it’s still a joy distraction. Don’t let Kanye into his zone!,
34. The Dawn Room
If you’re feeling down, visit the dawn room for a touching reminder of what we hold in our hearts but should always say aloud to those we love. Gravely, prepare the tissues for this one.
35. And lastly, just go on over and press the crimson button.
A message from me to you.
That’s all, Have a nice day :]
