Constant or uncontrollable noise can stress our bodies by raising our blood pressure and heart rate and by releasing stress hormones.
Most of us rarely experience true silence, but silence can help us to get in touch with our emotions, provide us with a sense of calm and leave us feeling rejuvenated.

· Listen for the sounds of nature – the birds singing, the bees buzzing and the trees whispering
· Turn down the volume
· Seek out silence
· Sit with only your thoughts to focus on and tune in to the quiet within
