Why The Sounds of Ocean Waves & Negative Ions Have A Positive Effect On Your Health
Although negative ions may sound like they would have a negative effect on your health, they actually work in a positive way.
Negative ions are part of the atoms that fill the air and become negative because they are more abundant in electrons than protons. In layman's terms, this means negative ions are present in areas with a lightning storm, near a waterfall, or near a beach with crashing waves. Negative ions can be healing in many ways and give you an all-around sense of well-being. Below are some reasons why.
1. They act as air diffusers and work to purify and detoxify the air, making it cleaner and easier to breath.
2. When the brain is saturated with these negative ions for at least 30 minutes a day, the chemical reaction acts as an anti-depressant.
3. Negative ions also promote alpha brain waves and increased brain wave amplitude, which result in higher awareness levels.
4. Negative ions are generally present in moist areas with higher humidity levels, which is great for keeping your skin healthy and moisturized.
So, when staying at L'Auberge Del Mar, we encourage you to take advantage of the negative ions and sleep with your windows open!
