It’s almost a no-brainer that from the time we humans were conceived, we have been programmed to be soothed by water. The nine months we spent inside our mother’s womb was a wet world of bliss. It was comforting, and we didn’t have a single shred of worry in the world.
So it only makes sense that if we want to relax, we go back to that water-filled umbilical sac and lull ourselves to sleep. But since we can’t go back in time, the next best thing would be to install indoor water fountains in our homes.
Other than the stress relief these fountains bring, they are popular in feng shui, as they bring forth the energy of water which symbolizes prosperity and wealth.
Another benefit of an indoor water fountain is it diffuses healthy negative ions into the air. If you wish to top up the energy benefits, use crystals and stones or essential oils with your fountain.
Your indoor water fountain doesn’t necessarily have to look oriental if it clashes with the overall theme of your living space. There are a lot of models out there which will match the style of your home. Whatever type of water fountain you choose, you’ll still reap its benefits.
