This can be a stressful time of year. Children in school with constant homework, busy days and nights, and Christmas right around the corner all lead to added anxiety for most adults. When you do get to enjoy your time at home, why not make it as peaceful and tranquil as possible? An indoor water fall is the perfect addition to your home to make that peace and tranquility possible. Listening to the gentle sound of flowing water is a soothing way to unwind from the stresses of everyday life. Unlike sound machines, which have become popular in recent years, indoor waterfalls give you both sound AND sight features that guide you toward your ultimate goal of rest and relaxation. You can stimulate your senses by running your finger tips under the cool water or change the sound of the waterfall by rearranging rocks in the basin or by adding new elements, such as seashells or small pieces of wood, along the water’s path. Whether you choose a small table top piece or a wall mounted fountain that is beautiful enough to work as a piece of art, you will get to come home to the relaxing sounds of nature year round – no babbling brooks required!
The Benefits of Water Fountains and Waterfalls
Outdoor Fountains and Garden Plantersare a beautiful addition to any backyard or patio. They are scientifically proven to soothe and relax us as we are able to slow down, listen and enjoy the sound of running water just as we would if we were out in nature.
Water fountains and waterfalls – which come in tabletop, wall mounted, and free standing varieties – bring the soothing sounds of flowing water to the home, but they also bring a visual element. Not only are water fountains and waterfalls beautifully designed and able to complement just about any existing home décor, the water itself lends another dimension of stress relief to the equation. Watching the dance and trickle of water as it flows across rocks, down textured surfaces, and into a basin at the bottom enhances our auditory experience. When we listen to sound machines or audio recordings of nature sounds, we may feel the need to close our eyes to block out visual distractions around us that take our minds away from the goal of relaxation. In contrast, the visual attributes of water fountains and waterfalls bring us closer to that goal by giving us something beautiful and elemental to focus on with our eyes as we listen with our ears.
Learning how to relax and focus is the ideal way to start of 2009….Good Luck!
