Visual effects in movies

From the earliest days, films use visual magic to create illusions and trickery.

Special effects in film help to create elements that are unrealistic. Film first relied on practical effects, but now most of the effects are designed with a computer. Whereas visual effects were often seen as decoration, it is now becoming central to many blockbusters.

Optimizing your environment for a calmer mind
  1. Surround yourself with nature. Nature makes us feel good and improves our health. It helps as a buffer against the stress we deal with on a daily basis. If nature is inaccessible, looking at photos of nature helps, as well as listening to birds and rain.
  2. Create opportunities for awe. It gives us the feeling of ceding control of our inner voice. We are less self-focused.
  3. Declutter. When we see the order in our environment it gives us a comforting feeling because it makes life easier to navigate.

When lifelong dreams crumble

All of us have hopes and dreams for the future that become part of our identity. But then reality gets in the way. Your passion may fade, or the obstacles to realising the dream may become too big to overcome. You may have feelings of regret and failure, or fear how others will judge you.
