The sound of wind blowing through the grass on sand dunes, the call of a cuckoo or waves crashing on a beach…there’s no doubt that part of the joy of being in the Great British outdoors is the sounds that come with it. When we spend time outdoors, the soothing sounds of nature help many of us to de-stress and be more mindful.
