People like seeing and hearing nature. Our brains shows signs of anxiety while listening to artificial sounds. Conversely, our brains do the opposite while listening to nature sounds such as water running. Artificial sounds direct our attention inward while nature sounds direct our attention outwards. Studies have shown that nature sounds can make people feel more relaxed and less stressed. Therefore, if you are ever feeling stressed or depressed, try getting some time outside in nature.
