At the Savannah/Hilton Head airport, there are rocking chairs where you rock away as you wait for your flight. More and more airports are adding rockers to their waiting areas. A study conducted at the University of Rochester reveals an increase in the psychological well-being from their use. It suggests rocking causes a release of endorphins that elevates the mood, in addition to relieving pain. We’ve long known that rocking can soothe infants, and it seems to provide the same therapeutic benefit for adults.
Okay, we were sold. We ordered them in a pale gray that complements the gray tabby stucco of our terrace. They are the perfect addition for relaxing and gazing at the beautiful views of our lagoon.
