Today, August 15 is World Relaxation Day, a vital and indispensable practice for our physical and mental well-being. Among the multitude of stimuli that help the body to relax are music and nature, two of the main reasons that give life and meaning to Noches del Botánico. The chords, the melodies, the sunset among the trees, the aroma of the plants or the freshness given off by the lushness of Jardín Botánico of the Complutense University help us to reach this state of plenitude in the splendid summer evenings of the capital.


In our little oasis we are very fond of lying on the lawn and taking advantage of the moments before the concert to read, enjoy a good cocktail or simply close our eyes and let nature flood us with peace. Those sensations that a well cared for and sustainable environment brings us help to eliminate the stress caused by routine.

In this same excerpt, psychologist Ana Asensio states that music listened to live has relaxing effects that lead to a decrease in certain hormones such as cortisol.
