Listen to a positive background instumental. Relaxing music to slow down, chill, for meditation, yoga or just be. In today’s fast and loud environment it can be a healthy habit to slow down for a few minutes daily. Let this music be your soundtrack…
This simple image relaxation video by relaxdaily is 7 minutes 50 seconds long and focuses on a single theme using several scenes of woodland trees in combination with relaxing music.
The theme of the video is narrowly focused on woodland trees which I find lovely for concentration and relaxation.
There are several scenes used throughout this simple relaxation video, a variety of woodland trees scenes. My personal favourite is looking upwards along the tree trunks to the tops of the trees.
The audio used in this relaxation video is lovely relaxing music.
The scenes of this image relaxation video show a variety of woodland images. There are trees, sometimes close enough to see the bark, with grass on the ground plus bushes. There is also some mist, sky and the sun’s sunshine coming through the woodland plus paths through the woodland.
The image sizes used are all a uniform size and fill the screen completely. Each image is displayed for a good length of time which I found to help aid the focusing of attention and relaxation. However, the images are spoiled a bit by the brand of the website (relaxdaily.net) being written over the image.
The transition types between images of this relaxation video are simple cross fades which help maintain a relaxed state. The transition times between images are also a nice and slow pace which help maintain a relaxed state. There is also a nice slow fade in from white at the start and fade out to white at the end.
There are two simple special techniques used in this simple image relaxation video, that of zooming in or out of the scene, giving the feeling of travelling towards or away from the scene, plus panning from side to side which gives the feeling of looking around.
I think this simple image relaxation video of woodland trees with relaxing music is good for relaxation. Having just one theme means the video is well focused. The scenes are lovely, the images cross fade in to each other nice and slowly and the images fill the screen completely. The music is also lovely to listen to. The scenes of woodland trees are lovely to look at whilst listening to the relaxing music. The use of zooming and panning give a feeling of travelling through the woodland and looking around.
In summary, this video is good as a focal point for contemplation and relaxation. A pity the website name is displayed over the image.
As an ambient background video it is not really long enough but it could be put on a recurring loop. With several complimentary scenes the video has enough variety and interest and would therefore good as an ambient background video. Also, people can listen to the relaxing music playing in the background to help them relax while they are concentrating on other tasks, such as reading, and looking up occasionally at the scene.
