Bird Music

Stress Relief Tool – Bird Music

Listening to birdsong is a wonderful way to reconnect with nature and shift your focus away from the clutter and chaos that is often part of our daily lives.

You have probably heard that listening to music can be a great stress relief tool because of its ability to remind us of previous positive memories and environments. It’s as if we time-travel when we hear a specific tune playing.

This also goes for a specific type of music that comes from our feathered friends – namely bird music. Listening to birdsong is a wonderful way to reconnect with nature and shift your focus away from the clutter and chaos that is often part of our daily lives. Connecting with nature is a natural stress reliever.

And not only is bird music a great way to connect with nature, but it also has been shown to help reduce anxiety through its ability to invoke positive memories, shift our focus to a more calm state, change a stressful environmental stimuli and distract us from something more negative.

If you don’t live or work in an area where you can easily listen to birds, consider listening to a birdsong YouTube video. And as you listen to a birdsong you like, you can enhance your experience by going to a quiet room and if possible, blocking out the light.

Happy birding!
