Sereneful Sunsets

By Cynthia Andary

Sunsets are a beautiful and calming sight. Watching as the sun dips below the horizon and the sky takes on a range of stunning colors, from vibrant oranges and reds to soft pinks and purples. Sunset is a peaceful and reflective experience, and many people find it to be a source of inspiration and beauty. I am one of those people. Not only is it stunning, but also it can have a positive effect on our brain chemistry, including the release of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood and contributes to feelings of well-being and happiness. This can lead to a sense of calm, relaxation, and contentment, which explains why many people find watching a sunset to be a mood-boosting experience. In addition to the release of serotonin, watching a sunset can also have other positive effects on our mental and emotional well-being. It can provide a sense of awe and wonder, promote mindfulness and presence in the moment, and offer a break from the stresses and distractions of everyday life. Overall, sunsets can be a beautiful and uplifting experience that can have a positive impact on both our physical and mental health.
