THE OCEAN FLOOR Hey. How's everything going for you lately? We're in a new year now; I know it felt like it kind of snuck up on all of us there. Are you doing OK? Are you stressed at all? Are you remembering to take a minute for yourself every now and then?

Here, go ahead and take that minute right now. Breathe deeply, put off some of that pressure and just sit back and relax. And you know what, to help you out, turn on this video. I promise you'll enjoy it.

The video comes from back in 2015, but it's one of the coolest things you could watch on the internet this week. Someone strapped a GoPro to a turtle's back, let the turtle roam its natural habitat in the Great Barrier Reef, and this super soothing footage is the result.

I know a lot of other cool things have been done with GoPros, but letting us see the ocean floor from the perspective of an actual sea turtle has got to be an all-time best. This footage will make you feel like you're on a piggyback ride on Mr. Turtle's back, just going for a chill swim around the neighborhood. I want to project it onto all the walls around me and play it on repeat for like an hour.

For now, however, I will not do that because I should probably get back to doing work and whatever, but I hope you enjoy this video and let it be a little calming respite in your day.
