I don’t believe in complicated things, I believe in “simple works”; and today I’m glad to share with you a simple item that will definitely boost your mood every single day.

In fact, it’s so effective that it has even been dated back almost 5,000 years.

I’m talking about Wind Chimes, which can be tracked down to Southeast Asia around 3000 BC.

The Chinese used the music of chimes to express emotions and establish an atmosphere of peace and harmony, and as a bonus, they were thought to ward off evil spirits.

It’s hard to believe that Buddhists liked to hang hundreds or even thousands of wind chimes or bells on temples.

Can you imagine that?

Later on, in the 1800s, wind chimes spread from China to the western world to stand the test of time. So the question is: why are they still here with us? Well…

The soothing tones of wind chimes echo the music of nature, creating a meditative atmosphere of peace and calm.

Listening to their sound creates a state of balance and relief; they inspire peace and harmony in our busy lives.

But you have to be careful, not all wind chimes are created equal. You’ve probably heard someone complaining about the “noise” certain neighbor’s chime makes.

To your surprise, they may be correct.

Chimes which aren’t tuned properly will make noise rather than soothing music, and will soon irritate you. The whole opposite of what we really want!

Wind chimes are often tuned in a variety of scales and it mainly depends on the size of it. Smaller chimes tend to have higher pitch sounds while longer and bigger ones will give you more “deep” tones. So don’t forget to take this into consideration before getting one.

Now, before leaving, please allow me to make the following suggestion. Buy yourself a quality Wind Chime, hang it in your favorite place, grab a cup of your favorite tea, sit there one evening, and let it soothe you with its melodic sounds.

You can thank me later 😉

Until next time, take care…
