Why is the sea so beneficial? Have you ever felt an incredible peace as you walked along the sea, or perhaps suddenly have you noticed that you have more energy and that your state of mind has improved? The truth is that most people experience a pleasant feeling of calm, relaxation and well-being when it is near the water. Why? After several studies, neuroscience think that the explanation lies in our brain, since being near the sea affects us both physically and psychologically. Several neuroscientists such as M. Rudd, R.A. Baron or M.C. Diamond have studied how the sea affects our brain, coming to the conclusion that the immensity it projects causes a state of fascination, deeply affecting our psyche. The perception of the sea as immense and placid but at the same time can be terrible and capable of killing us generates a unique experience that induces positive changes in our mental schemes thanks to how our mind tries to process this landscape. In the same way, the sea causes a change in the perception of time, which seems to pass much slower and even stop, making us feel in many cases as if we were inside a bubble. Creativity is another factor that seems to be enhanced, because by relaxing our mental processes, the neural network is activated by default and in that state of tranquility in the presence of the immensity of the sea come to the brain more brilliant, clear and creative ideas. Basically, the relaxing effect of the sea is because it gives a kind of vacation to our brain from the over-stimulation to which we Why is the sea so beneficial? We continually expose. In fact, we live in an environment overloaded with stimuli, these bombard us causing an overstimulation that ends up passing us invoice as it generates a state of constant tension that prevents us relax. However, seeing the sea and hearing the sound of the waves allows us to disconnect from that chaotic environment, it is as if creating a bubble around us. In fact, the movement of the sea and its immensity have an almost hypnotic effect, which generates that sense of tranquility and well-being that allows us to recharge energy. On the other hand, its blue color promotes breathing and contributes to lowering blood pressure. According to the color therapy, the blue color helps to make the fear disappear of the thoughts, to look to the future and it encourages us to change, to learn. Nor can we forget its sound, which makes us keep pace with our breathing, fundamental in relaxation. When a sound is constant and repetitive, it makes us concentrate on it more easily, because it increases the proportion of neurotransmitters in the brain. Its immensity helps to dispel thoughts of rumination, preoccupations and obsessions. There is a disconnection with our daily reality, a beneficial rupture for our mind. A space so open that unites with the sky encourages creativity, let the imagination fly. Smell is the most emotional sense. Smells are reminiscent of memories and arouse intense emotions. In front of an olfactory perception, the information comes directly to the limbic system in the brain and specifically to two of its structures: the hypothalamus and the cerebral amygdala, which is automatically activated and these structures are the centers of affectivity. The smell of the sea is a mixture of chemicals from salt, fish, crustaceans, wet rocks and DMS (dimethyl sulfide, which curiously, is the one that brings that characteristic smell to the sea). The sea smells of life and if we have ever felt pleasurable emotions by the sea, its smell will immediately wake us the same emotions. In this way, if we had to summarize and list their psychological benefits, we could find: Induce a meditative state As we have seen, the sound of the sea waves stimulates a meditative state and enhances a mindfulness attitude. In fact, this sound is often used in relaxation sessions as it has been shown to generate changes in brain waves. Specifically, it promotes alpha waves, which have been linked to an effortless state of attention. These waves appear when we are calm and relaxed but also so concentrated that everything around us disappears, even time. Curiously, these waves also promote a state of mental clarity and stimulate creative thinking. Our brain is constantly changing, even when we are asleep or when we think we have a blank mind. It is what is known as brain plasticity: everything we experience causes our brain (and our nervous system) to change in real time. That means there is not a time when our mind stays the way it was a while ago. However, there are certain experiences that modify our mental life more consistently than others. That is, the type of changes they introduce into our brain are more recognizable and more uniform. It is the case of what happens during meditation or, for example, when feeling that we are facing the sea or the ocean. Artículo de Federico Casado Reina Fuente: www.psicologiaysaludsevilla.com

525th anniversary of the meeting between two worlds. Huelva - America

As the 525th anniversary nears, the Province of Huelva and the Lugares Colombinos are restating their American vocation and desire to be the point of cultural, economic, academic and institutional entry for the Ibero-American countries with which the area has shared a common history for centuries. Specific activities (gastronomy events, handicraft fairs, events in symbolic places) and initiatives will be hosted to promote the Lugares Colombinos in celebration of the 525th anniversary of this great discovery.

On Friday, November 3 will be the presentation of the book Pedro Romero de Terreros, his first years (1710-1752), by Juan Manuel Romero de Terreros Castilla, followed by a baroque music concert entitled 'Echo sonoros del barroco en Nueva España' by the Spanish Parnassus.

Doñana and the Sierra de Aracena, leading examples of rural tourism in Andalusia

Andalusia is a first-class rural destination. Juan Ignacio Pulido, a professor at the University of Jaén, said that our community "has been able to efficiently manage the international demand for rural tourism." Rural tourism is "a young activity with great scope for growth." Pulido also said that the "type of tourist has changed." Travellers seek "specific and individual motivations." According to Pulido, rural visitors want to "participate in and learn from the place they are visiting" with its everyday aspects as they have a "growing social and environmental conscience." The most visited areas in Andalusia among rural tourists include the large natural spaces in the Province of Huelva, with Doñana and the Sierra de Aracena being the main attractions in this area.
