This year, I am thankful for the continued journey of discovery in the area of sound and wellness. Our soundscape changes everything, and managing our soundscape can impact our mental and physical health.
The Akoio Soundscape Journal — what I learned about sound and noise
Akoio developed the Soundscape Journal to help you identify sounds in your environment and how they affect you. In just one week, Leah learned about positive sounds that enhance her mood and identified noises she did not even realize were bothersome. With greater awareness comes empowerment to make changes.
