Noise: the underestimated enemy to your health

We live in an increasingly chaotic world, becoming noisier by the day.

Take a moment to reflect on the last time you were in a truly quiet space, devoid of any noise - no sirens, alarms, horns, or music. A space where you weren't constantly on edge, stressed, nervous, or anxious.

For you, it's normal. Noise is everywhere. And you don't pay attention to that. It's part of your life. Well, it's common, but that doesn't means that it's good for you.

Our purpose is clear: to rescue the invaluable resource of silence, offering a haven for those seeking concentration and connection amidst the chaos. We understand the challenges faced by our generations - the constant buzz, elevated anxiety, and the struggle to find moments of calm.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 30% of the urban population is exposed to noise levels exceeding the recommended limits. This increase is attributed to factors such as industrialization, traffic, and other sources of environmental noise.

In big and medium cities, where noise and distractions are omnipresent. Road transport in Europe, for example, stands out as the primary contributor to noise pollution, posing a serious threat to our health.

This continuous exposure has tangible implications for both our physical and mental well-being, including:

  • Increased risk of cardiovascular diseases.
  • Adverse effects on sleep quality.
  • Elevated prevalence of stress, anxiety, or depression.
  • Diminished ability to concentrate and learn, particularly in children.

In essence, noise is a significant factor directly diminishing our quality of life.

It's time to pay attention and understand the impact of noise on your health.
