One of the routine tasks that I love is Zooniverse, where I get to classify animals in the Serengeti and contribute to Serengeti research. Seeing the Serengeti and its marvelous creatures transports me from the urban LA to the middle of the prairie. I can see the blue clear sky and almost smell the dry grass.  So awesome. It Helps me relax and put things into perspective. A good three minute break from coding and making sense of data. I think just seeing majestic landscapes with marvelous animals makes me relax and reenergize (plus, I also help with research). So if you are stressed or bored, I highly recommend that you try out Zooniverse and enjoy the short escapade to the Serengeti. Bon voyage.

Here are some of my favorite pictures.
