Listening to nature helps calm us, reducing our stress, muscle tension, and even our heart rate. So work like Gordon’s and Quiet Parks International–an organization working to protect Quiet for future generations–is vital to protecting nature and our health!
Though many of us aren’t able to run out to enjoy a naturally quiet place, there are options! Why not sit and listen to the soundscape happening around you? Just sitting quietly and noticing the sounds that surround us can be a great way to relax and seek out quiet more often!
