Meditation, the 'Star Wars' way

Before you vent your hyperspace road rage by making smoldering bodies out of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, take a deep breath, and then another, and another, and another, and...

Everyone knows the galaxy can be an irritating place, with enough meddlesome muppets and tiresome teddy bears to strip the composure from even the most accomplished of Jedi masters.

But before you seize that innocent bystander by the neck and go all Dark Lord of the Sith on his unfortunate self, you should know there's a way to calm yourself. No, we don't mean a game of chess with a Wookie--we're talking about the new meditation video from Mr. Take-A-Deep-Breath himself, Darth Vader.

Produced by YouTuber Murdock129, who's also "worked with" Sega and Microsoft (among others), the video features a full 10 hours of the Dark Guru's soothing respirator melodies, guaranteed to have you chillin' like a villain in no time.

And if you feel like you need a change--after, say, your first hundred listens or so--you can make things interesting by opening up several tabs in your browser and starting a few versions of the video at different times.

Again--guaranteed to soothe the inner Sith. (And great, too, if you're using headphones to screen out the space clarinet while writing a blog item at the Mos Eisley Cantina--or if you want to crank call Princess Leia.)
