Sounds that make us calmer  
" Natural sounds alone can confer health benefits… Natural acoustic environments provide indications of safety or an ordered world without danger, allowing control over mind states, reduction in stress-related behaviour, and mental recuperation"

 

We listen tocean waves .. birds singing .. the wind in the trees .. woodpeckers tap-tap-tapping .. a river running .. horses settling down .. the stillness of a desert at night .. 

"In our modern world, it does also feel like there has been a reawakening to the depth and diversity of nature sounds, heightened by environmental concerns, and additionally, the impact of pandemic life, making us conscious of everyday riches that we may have taken for granted. In the wake of the first Covid lockdowns, one of the most prevalent (and much parodied) internet memes was: "nature is healing". Now, an increasingly resonant message is that nature revives us. The 2021 US research article "A synthesis of health benefits of natural sounds and their distribution in national parks" [in the US scientific journal PNAS] considered the impact of sounds including water and birdsong in urban green spaces: "Our review showed that natural sounds alone can confer health benefits… Natural acoustic environments provide indications of safety or an ordered world without danger, allowing control over mind states, reduction in stress-related behaviour, and mental recuperation." -- byArwa Haider10th June 2021, The sounds that make us calmer, BBC.
