Sounds – How They Affect Us?

by Bistra Kumbaroska on 30th August, 2011 at 11:28 AM CEST

Have you ever had a headache from the construction works on the building next door? Or felt annoyed in heavily crowded places?

In everyday life, people are surrounded by all kinds of sounds. Most of us do not percept all the existing sounds, but they affect us so much, regardless of our awareness for it.

Have you ever heard of acoustic ecology? Acoustic ecology is the relationship, mediated through sound, between living beings and their environment. It’s a science that puts an eye on research projects about how sound can harm or enlighten our everyday life. Famous scientist and doctors have come to an interesting fact about how brain reacts and which impulses and brain waves are emitted when human ear is violated by noise or uncomfortable sounds. TED Speaker Julian Treasure speaks of “The 4 ways sound affects us”.

So if you're still wondering why you wake up early in the morning and you are not in peace with yourself but anxious, listen carefully one more time and find if there is any source of noise nearby. Remember that listening to nature sounds can easily help you rest your ears and brain in the same time. So get out of your room and visit some nearby nature location.

Do share your experiences on this topic. Thanks!

hehe, Kataria family is rocking :)

Very near to my University is the river. So, sometimes when I have an exam in the early morning, I came half an hour earlier, and listen river sound :D it's always relaxing.

go Kataria family! :))

thanks for sharing this, Bistra. Some people get confused with music and noise. Sometimes, it annoys me when people make noise instead of beautiful music.

Sound will also be a part of life but it depends on its melody to be beautiful.
