Visual and aural stimulation play an incredible role in our minds and our bodies, even when we’re simply taking a few moments to imagine them. Of course, the relaxation benefits only increase when you surround yourself with the power of light and sound.
How does this relaxing technology work to put your mind and body at ease? Read on to learn more about the science behind Tranquility scenes, designed to create your personal oasis in your very own bathroom.
1. Water, Water Everywhere
It’s no coincidence that most of Tranquility’s environments place the viewer near a natural body of water; since ancient times, humans have appreciated water’s meditative and rejuvenating qualities. Standing by the ocean or a river simplifies sights and sounds and gives our brains a rest from the hustle and bustle of the stimuli we experience every day. Whether it’s an Ocean Voyage, Island Getaway or Cascading Waterfall, looking at water can help induce a calm state of focused awareness, which can lower stress levels.
2. Meditative Environment
Consider the health benefits of taking a walk in the park or othergreen space, which can help spark a state of meditation known as “involuntary attention.” This state allows something to hold your attention while simultaneously allowing you to reflect and focus your attention inward. Becoming immersed in these nine environments can help shift your attention to help clear your head and let your mind wander.
3. Relaxation For Your Ears
Certain music has been scientifically proven to slow the heart rate, reduce blood pressure, elevate mood and decrease stress levels. Listening to Tranquility’s accompanying music and natural soundtracks are a surefire way to slow down and relax.
4. Color Your World
The use of chromatherapy, using colors or lights to influence mood or health, is a practice that dates back to ancient times. Color and light affect the body and mood in a variety of ways, with research showing that individual colors can influence breathing rates, blood pressure and brain activity.
These are just a few of the ways Tranquility creates a relaxing and meditative experience unlike any other.
Sit back, relax and let Tranquility transport you to a new world through sound and visualization.
