CALM Covid Blocker: Enjoy a moment of CALM

CALM Covid Blocker: Enjoy a moment of CALM

Stuff’s weird right now – and there are loads of things that can make you feel anxious, worried, confused. From endless statistic updates to news stories on the long term impacts of this challenging situation, all this talk of coronavirus might be making you feel a bit, well, overwhelmed.

That’s why we’re bringing you the CALM COVID Blocker – a Chrome extension to limit the COVID-related content on your desktop webpages. It couldn’t be simpler. Just switch the CALM Covid blocker on for as long as you want to enjoy a moment of CALM, and feel a little more in control of the news you’re consuming. 

While avoiding the news full stop is probably not the best idea – it’s important to keep up to date with the latest advice and keep safe –  limiting when and how much COVID news you consume could help to keep your mental wellbeing in check. Or, you know, free up some time to do stuff you’ve always wanted to – like reorganising your spice rack, upholstering your reading chair, or painting your hallway.
