Normal weekday… Stop for a minute and listen to the sounds that surround you at this moment. Maybe you’ll hear some chaos: the noise of cars, voices, footsteps, etc… But if you pay attention you’ll certainly hear some unusually pleasant sound – birds singing.
Our life and the sounds of nature
Almost everyone of us occasionally feels a craving for nature. There is a desire to throw everything and the comfort of a city apartment and ‘go on a date’ with nature, to plunge into the beauty and tranquility, to feel the coolness of the forest, to feel the gentle breeze and enjoy the singing of birds and babbling brook.
Why do we like nature and its sounds so much?
It is known that loud noise has a negative effect on our nervous system and well-being, and when we are in touch with nature and its sounds it greatly raises our mood.
Scientists confirm that the sounds of nature can cause a special state of consciousness. Negative emotional outbursts are easily neutralized by the sounds of nature. The learning process is greatly facilitated.
Throughout the world listening to the sounds of nature and music in the background of the sounds of nature are widely used in meditation purposes. Such practices normalize pressure, neutralize the effects of stress, calm the nervous system, and therefore are beneficial for the entire human body.
Continuous listening to the sounds of nature helps to:
- improve memory;
- make your sleep deeper and more tranquil;
- increase the ability to heal itself;
- strengthen the immune system;
- activate the thinking ability;
- increase the ability to learn foreign languages;
- develop self-confidence;
- improve mood;
- increase your activity and resistance to stress.
Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to live in an environment of pure nature. But we must remember that we need this connection with nature because we are part of it.
Give yourself an hour of time to rest. Go to a comfortable quiet place. Turn on the music on the background of the sounds of nature (preferably using headphones), and let yourself relax as much as possible and completely immerse yourself in the magic world of natural sounds: rustle of leaves, birds singing, bees buzzing, the sound of rain…
