We all know things can get a little bit crazy at time, and sometimes it’s good to just take a step back. We’re in the homestretch until summer, so take a breath and let these tiles help you out.

Check out this week’s Top Tiles, featuring tiles to help calm your mind, and give you something else to focus on.

Simple Habit: On a mission to help people stress less and live better! Simple Habit offers 5-minute meditations for busy people on topics like: falling asleep, emotional regulation, self-control, and relationships. All meditations by Simple Habit are guided by world-class experts.

TedEd: Passionate for youth and education, TED-Ed supports learning through animated videos, providing international platforms for teachers to create their own lessons, and help curious students bring TED to their schools to fulfill their brains with knowledge. TED-Ed’s mission is to spark and celebrate the ideas of teachers and students around the world.

Balloon Typing Game: Practice your typing skills with the Balloon Typing Game. Balloons fall from the sky and you have to select the correct key in order for the balloon to pop. The point of the game is to keep your hands in the correct position on the keyboard. If you answer incorrectly, then the keyboard on the screen will display where your hands should be and which finger to use in order to reach the correct letter.

SelfControl: Avoid distracting websites with the help of a Mac app called SelfControl. This free and open-source application lets you block your own access to certain websites, mail servers, or anything else on the internet that decreases productivity. Set a period of time for SelfControl to block websites on your ‘blacklist.’ Until that time expires, you will not be able to access those sites, even if you delete the app or restart your computer.

Free Rice: Help to end hunger. With Free Rice, test your vocabulary skills and for each answer you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice to the hungry through the World Food Program. Play on your on while you have a minute to spare or share with you class so that your students can learn and help end hunger at the same time.
