Treehugger posted an article about “the most relaxing room in the world” – a space at the University of Herfortshire was created to help people relax – lit in heavy blues and greens, the room featured lavendar scented pillows, soft original music by Tim Blinko, and an artificial blue sky. From the original article at Alpha Galileo:
“The pace of modern-day life, credit crunch, and financial crisis is making many people feel very stressed and so we have created this space to help them relax”, noted Professor Wiseman.
“Research suggests that the subdued green light enhances the production of dopamine in the brain and provide a calming sensation. In addition, the artificial blue sky helps create a mild form of sensory deprivation that will help them turn their attention inward and distract them away from daily stress.”
The Alpha Galileo article has a bunch of tips on busting stress. Are you stressed out lately?
