The simple truth of the matter is that spending all day in front of a computer can prove to be a stressful thing at times. The computer may not work the way you want, the application you’re using may be acting up, you may be trying to explain something to a friend via IM and he’s just not getting it and it’s driving it up the walls, or something other may be causing you to tense up and want to punch the monitor – or at least curse the damn thing.

Speaking of which, Avira uncovered that 39% of computer users get so frustrated that they curse their computers. But I digress.

What can you do when you feel your computer is messing with your Zen and you feel like throwing it out the window? You can do what I always do – and what I always do is turn to software for help. There is Mac app out there that can help you calm down.

The app I am talking about is the Adam Mathes-developed and appropriately named CalmDown. Whenever you feel stressed out about something, click the yin-yang button the app puts at your disposal and select an option from the dropdown menu. Pick the “calm down” option and the monitor will fade to white for a moment. Pick the “5 deep breaths” option and the monitor will fade to white, then switch colors for about 5 seconds. I’m going to let you discover for yourself what the other options do.

You can grab the CalmDown app from the Mac App Store here for the low price of 99 cents. The app works with Mac OS X 10.5 or later.

I would like to add that if you’re constantly upset or stressed, there is an iOS app out there that can help you find inner peace and emotional freedom. The app I’m talking about is the Discover Yourself-developed AWARNESS. Read more about it here.
