Breathe in. Breathe out.

P0nd is a brief, Flash-based relaxation game. I admit I didn't find it relaxing until I got the hang of breathing. Your space bar mastery will be much improved by the end (trust me on this) (hat tip to Things Are Good).

"Walden, a game," was developed at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts Interactive Media Divisions’ Game Innovation Lab and “simulates the experiment in living made by Thoreau at Walden Pond.” The game happens in a real-time, three-dimensional environment and replicates not only the actual geography of Walden Woods, but also the experiment of ascetic living that Thoreau conducted and recorded in "Walden" – an experiment that continues to be emulated by individualistic Americans today. According to the developers, the game “posits a new genre of play, in which reflection and insight play an important role in the player experience.”
