Over at the Huffington Post, they’ve launched what appears to be a new series called “Your Daily mOMent:” videos meant to instill calm in the viewer.
And while I appreciate the notion — I really do, I fully believe in taking little breaks to calm the fuck down during the day — this video makes me feel more stressed out, rather than less. Take a look:

Now, how do you feel? I’ll tell you what went down for me. First, I felt confused about what the purpose of the video was. Once I understood, I started to get pissed because it’s August and I haven’t been to a pool yet all summer. Then, I felt a little trapped because I couldn’t think of a time in the near future when I’d be able to justify spending the whole day — or even half of the day! — at a pool.
Then, the video ended.
And now I feel worse.
What about you?
