Sometimes in our workaday life, we get dragged down by the little things in life โ€” the humdrum of it all. We often forget that there's a sublime universe of limitless icons out there.

So here's something that might help:

Step 1: open up Emoji.Zone. Blow it up to full screen.

Step 2: Play some soothing ambient music โ€” Boards of Canada or Enya, maybe a bit of 2001 music if you're feelin' upbeat. Bonus points for adding Carl Sagan's soothing voice.

Step 3: Stare into it, and realize that the universe is full of awe and majesty, and you are just an insignificant emoji in its maddening vastness.
