Getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life and into the woods and forests has many benefits. It’s good for the body and good for the soul.
A forest is a noisy place. Birdsong, the wind, the rustle of leaves, and other sounds combine to create a rich, varied soundscape. Bird song is an important part of this environment.
Forest soundscapes are usually relaxing and serene. A deep, natural forest ambience is a perfect way to relax and refresh your mind. Here are some forest soundscapes to help you relax. Listen to this audio to enjoy the sounds of the forest. These sounds can help you relax, relieve stress, and help you fall asleep.
Sounds saturate the forest around us — insects buzz, frogs yelp, birds shriek, mammals scuttle, and bats click.
Nature sounds activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which lowers the heart rate and brings about other physiological changes that help promote sleep.
Forest sounds relax you because they are constant noises of a pleasant pitch. Your brain interprets them as non-threatening noises, which helps reduce your fight-or-flight response. This lowers your stress level and helps you become more relaxed for sleep.
