Y5 – Day 168 – Ocean vs. Mountain

Both the crashing, splashing of waves or waterfalls and forests (especially pine trees) emit negative ions. Negative ions┬ádeter depression or the blues. Therefore, negative ions actually uplift your mood. That’s why even if you are grieving, sitting on a beach or hiking in the woods soothes your soul.

Personally, I need the stillness I find by a mountain lake surrounded by trees. The beach is alive with noisy commotion and sometimes stirs me up, albeit positively. But a forest full of conifers alive with birds, squirrels and chipmunks dining on nuts and seeds, instills an innocent serenity I treasure.
