Science Reveals Why Nature Sounds and Deep Breathing Are so Relaxing

Story at-a-glance

  • Sounds of nature affect your brain, lowering your fight-or-flight instinct and activating your rest-and-digest autonomic nervous system. Listening to nature sounds also helps you recover faster after a stressful event
  • City dwellers are more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety than those living in rural environments. If you live in a city, seek out parks or create a natural sanctuary at home, using plants and an environmental sound machine
  • Another way to trigger your relaxation response is through breath work. Scientists have found taking deep breaths is calming because it does not activate the neurons that communicate with your brain’s arousal center
