In a modern and stressful society people have discovered the benefits of using water fountains as a way of reducing the stress. The oozing sounds of water falling and the fresh air that the fountains are surrounded with provide a way out of your every day challenges.
The answer is yes and yes. Experts called the stress, the silent killer. The most common kind of stress is distress which has two different types, acute stress and chronic stress. The acute stress is the one that makes your hands sweat, your heart race, and your voice shake. It usually occurs with a change in your routine such as getting ready for an important test, or having a presentation in front of an audience. The second one may occur when you change jobs constantly or moving from place to place (My father was a pastor and we have to constantly move from town to town putting a lot of stress not only onto my poor mother but also the kids). This will affect your body and brain for long periods of time.
The good news is that we can help control them. According to experts, having a water fountain in your house, office, or garden helps reducing stress by filling the air with the relaxing sounds of cascading water. After a long day at work, just walking into your home close to a water fountain, there is nothing more relaxing than to sit close to it, close your eyes and just hear the soft sound of water running and clear your mind of all the everyday struggles...believe me is one of the most relaxing experiences a person can have. It will work as a sound barrier; all traffic noise in the background will fade away. You mind will be in that great relaxing moment that you do not want it to end. After a few minutes of immersing in your happy place, you will be ready for almost everything. Bills to pay? Teens drama? Grocery shopping? (I particularly hate to do this!) You will be just ready to continue and your stress levels will be lower.
If you dont have a garden? No problem there is a great variety of them in the market for every kind of style and budget: table top, wall, floor water fountains for pretty much where you want to put them. They come in different sizes and styles to fit your needs. I love the garden ones!
If you are looking for a way of reducing your everyday stress level a water fountain in your home will help.
