There's something about the sights and sounds of water that holds us in its trance. Not only is water beneficial for your body (see how refreshing it is in my blog post here) - it also has a wealth of benefits for your mind.
Gazing out on a river, ocean, or lake brings about a calm focus. The sounds of the water and the sight of an open horizon could be setting our minds in a gentle state of meditation. This relaxed awareness has a host of benefits for your mood from stress relief to improved focus.
“We are beginning to learn that our brains are hardwired to react positively to water and that being near it can calm and connect us, increase innovation and insight, and even heal what’s broken,”
“We have a ‘blue mind’ — and it’s perfectly tailored to make us happy in all sorts of ways that go way beyond relaxing in the surf, listening to the murmur of a stream, or floating quietly in a pool.”
The rhythmic sound of water, either lapping on shores or streaming in a shower acts as white nose that allows our thoughts to wander and our minds to daydream. In these moments we become more creative.
It's no doubt that some of our best ideas come to us in the shower. Augment your moments of brilliance with the motivating aromatherapy in these soaps and see what amazing ideas you come up with! Be sure to let me know :)
