Ever wondered why you feel elevated after charging through waves in the ocean or standing under a waterfall?
Negative Ions are incredibly good for you, which makes them a big positive!
So what are they and how do you get them?
(Stay with me on this) Ions are particles found in the air. They are either molecules or atoms, which bear an electric charge. A negative Ion is an atom (or molecule) that has gained one or more extra negatively charged electrons. (Still with me??)
They are invisible, odourless and tasteless. They are usually created by crashing waves, waterfalls, storms and salt lamps. You can actually buy machines these days that can produce negative ions for your room or house.
Places where there is a depleted level of negative ions are concrete jungles like cities, in air-conditioned offices and inside cars. A controlled study on seasonal affective disorder (SAD), reported in the Archives Of General Psychiatry in October 1998, found negatively charged fresh air to be an effective treatment and prevention for depression. Scientists believe this is because negative ions affect the serotonin levels in the brain, less dramatically (and synthetically) than a prescription antidepressant.
Negative ions have also been proven to:
- Relieve stress
- Increase energy
- Help reduce airborne germs
- Increase mental clarity
- Improve blood circulation
So if you want a nice dose of positivity get yourself some negative ions by:
- standing under a waterfall
- jumping through some crashing waves
- turn off wifi and electronics at night
- install salt lamps in your home
- have indoor plants in your home
- dry your clothes in natural sunlight where possible
- install ionisers in your home
