Companies and individuals are always trying to find ways to better their mental well being. Whether it be a healthier lifestyle, more exercise, quitting smoking, more peaceful sleep, less stress etc. More and more we are seeing companies come up with wellness programs and individuals seeking ways they can incorporate a healthier style of living at home. Stress plays a very large part in negating a healthy lifestyle. If your goal is to eat healthier or quit smoking for example, being stressed can lead to overeating or smoking more, thus not allowing you to accomplish your goals. There are some natural ways to reduce stress and get to the bottom of learning how to let it go and relax so you can accomplish your health and wellness goals both at work and home.
Think about how you unwind and relieve stress each day. Do you listen to soft relaxation music? Or may be you go for a walk and listen to the birds or the river? What about relaxing with a book or even simply taking deep breaths and practicing your breathing? The sounds of nature will make almost anyone relax. One idea that has proven to help relieve stress and relax is the sound of flowing water.
Now, if only we could al bring our desks, computers, meetings etc to a river’s edge so we can listen to the soft sound of flowing water? Would that make us more productive? Perhaps, but that isn’t realistic for most jobs. A more realistic concept of improving health and wellness in your personal and corporate environments is to bring those soothing water sounds to you. Installing a water fountain in the workplace has been proven to improve employee moral and sense of well being as well as lead to a less stressed, more relaxed feeling in the workplace by providing these wonderful, soothing water sounds. Having the background noise of soft flowing water rather than no background noise or elevator music is absolutely wonderful!
Water fountains come in many different styles so it is easy to find one that will fit any environment. In the corporate setting a wall mounted fountain may be the best as it takes up no space and mounts wonderfully to any wall. You can even add a logo to advertise your business and serve two purposes as once. Another great idea for the office is desktop fountains. A small fountain on your desk can bring you these wonderful natural water sounds while you work. If you have a home office or want to put a fountain in your favorite sitting room at home, you can go for a wall fountain, tabletop style or floor standing fountain. Any water fountain style will bring water sounds and provide relaxation at home as well.
