The Psychological And Emotional Benefits of Water


by Leslie Gabriel March 15, 2019

We often take water for granted, it’s as easy as turning a tap, and we can have as much of it as we like until we turn off the tap. Because water is so commonplace, it’s easy to forget how important it is for life. Water makes up close to 75 percent of the Earth’s surface and close to 80 percent of the human brain. That’s a lot of water.

The Psychological And Emotional Benefits of Water

Being by the sea and waterfalls increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, improves alertness and mental energy. Minerals in sea air reduce stress. Negative ions by the ocean and by waterfalls.

Salt in the seawater aids in diminishing depression and boosting feelings of well-being. Ocean salt water preserves tryptamine, serotonin, and melatonin giving us a better night’s sleep,

Water sounds provide peace of mind. Sounds of water have long been used in meditation to create a soothing atmosphere for our minds. Science suggests that the rhythm of ocean waves and tides coming in and out can affect the rhythm of the neuronal “waves” in our brain, encouraging a more peaceful pace of thought.

Our Bluworld GardenFall Indoor Outdoor Water Fountain offers a wonderful calm environment to any location - indoors or outdoors.

The sounds of water, also known as “white noise,” help us to let go of our thoughts and let the noise wash over us. In listening to these sounds, we learn how to be present in the moment and directly experience things as they are instead of getting lost in our heads.

When we’re by the sea, lakes, or waterfalls there is a feeling of awe. There’s just something about the beauty and vastness of a natural scene that has a profound impact on the way we feel. Science has even found that such feelings can lead to behavior like altruism, loving kindness, and magnanimity. Some studies have even found that awe leads to greater life satisfaction. It fosters a sense that time is plentiful, and people donate more to charity while valuing experiences over possessions.

It’s amazing that water has such a positive effect on our emotional health and well-being when we pay it the mind it deserves.
