Feeling stressed? Skip the expensive massage or your plan to let  loose with a bottle of wine. These simple, sensual and peaceful GIFs are exactly what you need – after all, is there a more perfect combination of feelings?

In a lovely example of collaborative work, Spanish motion graphics designer and photographer Alvaro Abrante took a minimalist collection from artist Cesar Santillan and brought them to GIF-y life via Adobe Illustrator and Adobe After Effects, in a series called Them.

As a name, Them sums it up really: we don’t know who these women are, no context is provided and, in most of the GIFs, we don’t even see their faces. Even when we do (shown), there are few details - so, anyone can imagine themselves relaxing just like the women in the collection. Ah… how lovely.
