Indoor water fountains have benefits other than their aesthetic appeal. For starters, fountains have a pleasing sound which relieves stress and aids better sleep. Did you know that an indoor water feature can do even more than that?
An interesting topic that you might not have connected to simple water features is the process of ionization and how it benefits your health.
Our air is comprised of positive and negative ions, and your body responds best to an atmosphere that is slightly more negatively charged. Appliances in your home act to undermine that ideal balance. As ions are negatively and positively charged electric particles, electric appliances and technology naturally have their effect on nearby ions. These devices promote an excess of positive ions. These ions cause lethargy in humans. That might make a lot of sense to you if you find your office job to be very tiring as you sit in front of a computer all day.
Indoor fountains can reverse those effects. Rushing water releases negative ions. Any water that splashes or moves releases these ions. In fact, all natural places with fresh air and organic features are full of negative ions. A water fountain really does simulate the great outdoors in your own home in this way.
Negative ions give you energy, instead of promoting lethargy and depression. When you breathe in a heavy dose of negative ions, your serotonin level rises. Serotonin is a natural chemical in your body that promotes a positive mood and an energy boost.
While being outdoors in unpolluted air is the best way to access a stream of negatively charged ions, an indoor fountain will thwart the imbalance that your technological devices are causing.
An indoor fountain or water panel will add to the ionic purity of whatever space you see fit. If you are in charge, put one in your office, that might be the place where you most need it. Or install one in your own home and reap the most benefits from your water feature.
