Photography prints to reduce stress
When it comes to choosing the latest addition to your home or office art collection, your first thought probably isn’t how it could affect your emotional well-being and stress levels. However, choosing the right prints can have a calming effect on any room, whether that is a one-off limited edition framed print or several open edition pieces in various sizes. Creating the right aesthetic can have a positive impact on far more than just the look of the room they are placed in.
Photographic seascapes can be naturally calming
Research has been conducted into how a view of a landmark-free ocean is naturally calming to us, much in the same way that closing your eyes is naturally calming. Choosing prints of various sizes with natural seascapes can be a welcome addition to a busy office or even a stressful kitchen or lounge. Being able to take a moment to enjoy the oasis of calm captured in the photograph can have a positive effect on your emotional well-being.
Whether you are more drawn to a rolling seascape of calm waters against sandy beaches or choppy waves caught in a photograph as they hit against the bottom of a cliff face, photographs capturing the sea in motion are an ideal addition to any space. In a lounge, you may choose a striking large print. In an office, you may prefer a series of open edition prints in various sizes, capturing differing seascapes. Whichever you choose, you can simply add a beautiful piece of art that can help to reduce your stress levels in your everyday life.
Landscapes can have a positive impact on your emotional well-being
While many of us would like more greenery and plants in our work or home life, the practicalities of keeping plants often aren’t realistic with busy schedules and long working hours. While we may know the benefits of greenery and plants in offices and homes as having a calming effect, it might be surprising to learn that studies have shown photographs of beautiful green landscapes have an equally positive effect and improving emotional well-being in stressful situations.
When it comes to choosing the right print of greenery for your home or office, the sky captured in the photograph may be as important to you as the landscape. Blue skies and warm tones in a photograph can complement any room and have a natural calming effect as you catch a glance whilst working or relaxing.
