Going To The Beach Can Be Powerful Therapy For Body And Mind, Study Says
Why are people so driven to the beach? Is there any scientific basis behind it? Actually, there is! Experts in biobehavioral health at Pennsylvania State University claim that the whooshing sounds of the waves set us in a calm mood.
Apparently, the noise of the ocean creates harmony and peace inside a human’s mind. It promotes brain health and may put us into a meditative state. Listening to the gentle sounds of the waves makes us follow our own breathing. Some suggest it is like a mother humming a baby to sleep. One more reason for the calming effect of the water sounds probably originates from the prenatal period when babies grow in the safe environment of the womb water.
