Using Green Landscape Images and Pastoral Music for Relief of Anxiety

Updated on April 24, 2013

Stress Relief using Sight and Sound

After a rough day, do you wonder how you can relieve some of that stress or anxiety that has built inside of you? You don't want to take the stress out on your spouse or partner,

Many people listen to music or just unwind on the drive home but some don't have those outlets to let them rid themselves of stress.

Personally, I like to put my headphones on and listen to soothing music. While I sometimes close my eyes, I also like to look at green pastoral images. I find them very soothing and relaxing.

Join me in this little journey and hopefully some of your stress will be relieved by the end of the website. This is here to help but I may put some light participation in for your enjoyment.

Please listen to the music in-between and either watch the videos or look at the green pastoral images and imagine yourself there. Use your imagination and feel the breeze and smell the outdoors. All photos were taken by me so I can imagine being there, but I want you to be right there with me!

Ever Wonder Why Green is so Soothing?

How can green get me to relieve my stress?

Green, is scientifically the most soothing color to the human eye. Why is that?

Well, if you know anything about the color spectrum that we can see, green falls directly in the middle. It takes less stress and strain to see and is actually used in stress-free environments.

Green is the color that is least given speeding tickets (by human police) and it is also the color on most vehicle dashboards. You do not strain your eyes as much and it makes driving easier. i have had cars with red dashboards and they just don't feel right to me.

Green images are also very soothing and in therapy, they are sometimes flashed to patients to deescalate them. They not only calm down bu the physiological responses such as heart rate and blood pressure are decreased.

So, if you really need to have a good night's sleep, get a DVD or just watch green images on your computer screen. You can also do this at work, right before you go home. You will notice a world of difference before jumping into your car or bus.

      Such a great lens! Thanks, I love all the green. Green is so soothing...that's why hospital staff often use green (or blue) scrubs. And how did you get the motion in the images?? Is that a certain module? I love it! Also, I wanted to let you know I added your lens to 2 of my stress relief lenses, "Deep Breathing Exercises" and "5 Simple Stress Relieving Techniques For Busy Moms." Stress relief is a subject near and dear to my heart. So thank you for this visual relaxing treat.

      @lionmom100: I try to use a little motion, makes it interesting to see a little movement, catches the eye. I try not to use too much, however.

      Wow. Awesome lens! I didn't know green was relaxing because it was easy for the eye to see. I have always loved landscape pictures and now I think I know why I am drawn to them or at least a small part of why. Thanks for sharing. So cool.

      I was amazed at the picture above. Isn't that a lovely site to see grasses blowing in the wind? Green really is stress relieving. And your lens is too - thank you!

      @Rock Artist: This comment has made my day. Thank you for the compliments and yes, before my dog died a few days ago, I used to walk her in a greenbelt also. I could just sit there and relax, taking it all in. Your compliments were very sweet. Thanks for the visit.

      @squidoopets: Wow, so you think that green is the color of love? Very interesting. I do think it is more calming than red so you are probably correct. Thank you for your visit, as always!

      I LOVE this lens, it is just what I need today and will come back to visit often. I love the color green and find it most soothing to walk my dog through the greenbelt near my home and look at the scenery and listen to nature. Thanks for this focus on the color green, I love the pictures and the music, you did a great job!
