August 11, 2023

TOMS RIVER – Stress can affect anyone, for any number of reasons. Teens feeling overwhelmed can unplug, unwind, and re-focus in the Ocean County Library’s online Calm Room.

Located in the Teen Zone at www.theoceancountylibrary.org, it offers tools and resources for understanding how stress develops, ways to manage it, and tips for physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Teens will find portals to soothing sights and sounds, live nature and animal cams, personal stories, mindfulness and meditation guides, and links to related apps, podcasts and websites including Calm, Headspace, Rainy Mood, A Soft Murmur, and others.

The Calm Room is part of the Teen Health and Wellness Database, which provides articles and videos by professionals and teens on various topics related to teen health and wellbeing.

The database also contains a list of free, safe, confidential hotlines in Ocean County, the state of New Jersey, the U.S. and Canada for issues such as homelessness, addiction, bullying, depression, grief, HIV/AIDS, and more.

This free service is provided in collaboration with Rosen Publishing. To learn more, stop by any of OCL’s 21 branches or reading centers, visit www.theoceancountylibrary.org, or call (732) 349-6200.
