Waterfalls are some of the most amazing natural wonders on our planet. These beautiful cascades come in a variety of forms, but all of them have one thing in common - the feeling of joy, wonder, and inner peace that they instil.
As the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Just having pictures of nature around you can have a positive impact on your mood and emotional state. A 2015 study found that those who looked at awe-inspiring photos of nature reported a significantly better mood! So here are a few reasons why you should consider bringing waterfall prints into your living and working spaces.
1. CREATES CALMNESS
The sight and sound of running water can be incredibly calming. Over the years, multiple studies have found a strong link between water features and the mental state of people around them. Even pictures of water bodies such as lakes, ponds, rivers and waterfalls were found to have a calming effect on the mind. Just the mental image of a small stream flowing through a lush forest can bring tranquility to your mind. Put up pictures of waterfalls with short drops and gentle flows in spaces you spend a lot of time in, and you will always have something to still your mind.
2. LIFTS YOUR MOOD
With their unstopping yet gentle nature, waterfalls represent many things, such as life, hope and rejuvenation. They add life and energy to everything around them, and some even have their own rainbows! Spend enough time imagining a thundering waterfall, and you can almost feel the cool spray on your skin. A picture of water thundering down from a height can not only be refreshing in its imagery but will also lift your spirits.
3. REDUCES STRESS
Humans have a deep relationship with water. The very feeling of water on your bare skin can be therapeutic, soothing nerves and reducing stress. Another 2015 study showed reduced stress levels in people living in coastal areas, who associated their wellbeing with the water all around them. Pictures of tranquil pools of water in underground caves or ponds so clear you can see all the way to the bottom are great to lose yourself in, particularly during stressful times.
4. INCREASES YOUR MOTIVATION
Waterfalls are truly amazing and have deep symbology and meaning associated with them. By there very nature, they are strong forces that carve their way through the hardest of rocks over time. They are a sign of persistence, perseverance and ultimate victory in the face of adversity. Put up images of some of the most dramatic waterfalls in the world to inspire and motivate you to never give up!
5. CONNECTS YOU TO MOTHER NATURE
These days, with urban jungles of steel and concrete taking over our world, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find ways to enjoy the beauty of nature. Waterfalls in particular are not easily accessible sometimes. But there is hope! You can bring mother nature into your life and reconnect with her through pictures of some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Australia.
6. PROMOTES RELAXATION
Spending your day floating in a pool is the ultimate way to relax. But let’s face it - we have jobs and life gets in the way. Thankfully, it’s easy to escape from reality through the power of imagination. Add pictures of water flowing into calming pools of water to spaces where you like to unwind to create an overall sense of peace and relaxation.
