What differs us from animals? Many would answer the instinct. The answer is not wrong, however it is not entirely correct. I would say that another thing that differs us from animals is modesty.

Many studies have shown that while listening to music, the body increases the production of endorphin, which acts like a morphine in the brain, alleviating depression or anxiety.

Anyway. the best solution to detach ourselves from the chaos of the city would be to get in touch with nature.

But what exactly is silence? Pure silence almost never exists because probably the silence itself is a deafening noise to the solitude of our soul. True silence is when we hear birds singing or how much we hear the sound of crickets or cicadas …
