Nature and it’s health benefits
The feeling of leaving the stress of everyday life behind for some time, surrounded only by the beauty sounds of nature – often it only takes this to get back to the daily tasks of everyday life and recharge your batteries. Sounds such as the wind blowing, the rustling leaves and the flowing of the river’s stream not only create magical images in our minds, but can really work wonders in us. Besides touching our senses, the feeling of stress and anxiety can be reduced by spending time outdoors, improving our overall health. Studies have shown that time spent in the forest surrounded only by the sounds of nature, for example, promotes the immune system and can also contribute to better sleep quality.*

The diversity of Finnish landscapes
The Finnish nature with its rough and often untouched charm invites to be admired. On the one hand, with over 70% of its surface being covered by trees, it is Europe’s most forested country. Simultaneously, the landscape of QuietOn’s home country is characterized by its unmatched density of lakes as well as the raw beauty of Lappish fells. Depending on the season, Lapland in particular enchants with different colors and touches and soothes every time in a new way.
