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.Â From the original article at Alpha Galileo:
â€œThe 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 relaxâ€, noted Professor Wiseman.
â€œResearch 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.â€
The Alpha Galileo article has a bunch of tips on busting stress.Â Are you stressed out lately?
