As we celebrate World Health Day we take a look at how we can improve our mental health and wellbeing.
Organized by the World Health Organization celebrated on 7th April 2022 the main theme of this year’s campaign is “Our planet, our health: clean our air, water and food. #HealthierTomorrow”
During the pandemic, we saw an increase on stress levels with people feeling worried and scared.
Many worldwide charities reported a growth in people accessing their information for support. Mind saw over 18 million people download their guides on wellbeing tips and hints for home and the workplace. With many families appealing for further help for younger children and elderly family members.
Over the past few years, one of the key elements to our daily lifestyle was that our love grew even more for the great outdoors, especially spending time with family and friends in the garden. The calming and tranquil haven of our back gardens became, in many families, the only place they could all be together for many, many months.
From our own experience here at Teamson HQ we were inundated by our loyal customers asking us to recommend the best fire pits but also asking us for advice on our water features, as many wanted to create a Zen like feel in corners of their gardens and indoors too.
We want to give you some practical advice on the “Blue Health” phenomenon of being close to water and how the benefits of even the smallest water fountain and help create a calming atmosphere in your home.
Wallace J. Nichols, PhD, a marine biologist and former senior scientist at the non-profit Ocean Conservancy, says that people should put more effort into spending time in and around water — whether that water is “wild, domestic, or virtual.”
To create a space with a water feature can be really, very straight forward and very satisfying. We have a range of products to suit all spaces, sizes, and budget requirements.
Before buying a water feature, think about where it is intended for and what you want from it. Some of our water features for example have LED lights to help to create the ultimate relaxing feeling.
Our introduction range, can be used indoors for example and many of our consumers use them in bathrooms, hallways, bedrooms and conservatories. Our Teamson Home Tabletop with LED Lights and pump comes in bronze and is very easy to set up. This best-seller is soothing and elegant. Standing no bigger than a liter bottle of cola, this mini water feature is perfect for people who want to create a zen-like atmosphere without spending a lot of money. Furthermore, you can move this from room to room.
Taking the water features outdoors and where many enjoy the relaxing sounds of nature, the Teamson Home Curved Waterfall Fountain is proving to be a real winner when it comes to creating a striking area in your garden. The statuesque, lightweight ornament is easy to install and comes with the pump to maintain the cascading water. Complete with decorative stones and LED light, the sounds of the water will undoubtedly create calm for you and your family.
Taking time out and having quiet time is a must. The benefits to your wellbeing have a positive impact on you, your family and your friends. Having “Me Time” and a quiet place to get the noise of the day out of your headspace really is a priority. A peaceful place at home or in your garden can be enjoyed by all members of the family and it has many cognitive benefits for the very young and old. #HealthierTomorrow
