Your Day 1 Making Time challenge: For 1 minute… listen to the sound of water

Ocean waves, babbling brooks, freshwater streams and trickling fountains… there’s nothing as soothing as the sound of water. Water is essential to life. It symbolises purity, clarity and calm, and hearing it flow freely in its natural surroundings can be incredibly cleansing. As well relaxing our mind, on a subconscious level flowing water speaks to our soul and reminds us of our very existence. It’s a great form of meditation.
