Sounds of a water stream
In many parts of the world today, we take water for granted. We open a tap and clear fresh water is at our disposal. For centuries in the past and for some less fortunate people still today, water is a rare and even precious commodity. We totally depend on water for survival and so do our food sources. Water in many ways is A ! symbol of life. The sound of running water, triggers in us the rest-digest state and brings on us relaxation.
Dehydration may bring upon us negative feelings, thirst, dry skin, stress, muscle tension just to name a few unpleasant symptoms.
The sound of running water soothes, heals and relaxes. It brings a natural clam. For me, the sound of running water is the absolute favorite, when it comes to ‘sound of nature’. I get high when I hear the real thing and I have also used for many years, a recording of running water. When I watch my breath, it intensifies my relaxation.
In the old days, it was CDs with sounds of running water. Recently after smart phones became popular, I am using an app that plays a steam of running water. This app is very convenient and has a timer.
