Shhh! National Quiet Day is Nearly Upon Us

Shhh! It’s National Quiet Day on Thursday, 14th September, 2017.

Noise is everywhere, in the busy office, in restaurants, and even at home. We simply can’t get away from the buzz of everyday life. Sometimes it can just be all too much.

We know that peace and quiet is good for both the body and the mind, but it’s increasingly difficult, in today’s world, to experience real quiet. That’s why National Quiet Day is so important.

Judy Edworthy, Professor of Applied Psychology at Plymouth University explains: “Noise can be fatiguing, it can increase our stress levels, it can cause annoyance, it affects our ability to concentrate and it can affect our whole body directly in ways which are not always obvious.”

So why not stop. Take a little time for yourself, discover your inner Zen and enjoy some sanctuary in silence on the 14th September, even if it’s for just a moment.

National Quiet Day is in partnership with appliance manufacturer Whirlpool.
