There is a lot of noise we have to bear which has some effects of stress on the body. A constant humming of appliances, noise of the traffic, sound of television, radio, music systems, ear phones, public functions, loud speakers and various other noises continuously pervade our system.
This constant chatter and elevated levels of noise around you start impacting you. The impact is caused due to three factors:
- Continuous exposure to noise irrespective of the sound levels. There is not even a moment’s solitude to calm the mind and get it to relax even at night. This chatter continues in the brain even while we are sleeping. This disturbs our thought patterns and alters our functioning.
- The kind of noise we are exposed to. Disjointed, screeching and mindless sound is what we are exposed to. None of what we listen today is soothing and calming. Even the music is extremely fast paced, loud and devoid of any calm. This kind of noise is not in harmony with the body and our frequencies. The net result is mental and physiological disturbances.
- We are exposed to very high levels of noise. This is what we call decibels. There are various decibel levels prescribed in various countries but in reality we are exposed to high noise levels. This itself is bad and various researches have thrown up the ill effects of loud sounds.
EFFECTS OF STRESS ON THE BODY DUE TO NOISE
All the above three factors cause actual physiological and mental stress without you even realizing it. Next time you want to pump up the volume, listen to television or music with headphones or with the volume turned up or spend a lot of time in a night club, do think twice.
Long term exposure to noise and high sound levels lead to:
- impacting the immune system
- become more prone to diseases and fevers
- cause internal fatigue and eventually lead to more serious ailments
- The other drawbacks are becoming irritable, increased heart rate and blood pressure
- getting into anger management issues
- It also impairs thought processes
A good solution is to go silent each day for at least a couple of hours. Learn to stay without noise or sound. Talk less on the phone. Try watching audio visual content at a low volume. Get rid of the home theatres. Reduce the bass and the volume on your music player. Go silent and feel the difference.
