Our brains naturally tune out a lot of stimuli, especially if it’s repetitive, to minimize neural load and energy usage. Being in a silent space for awhile causes our brains to focus much more on sound in order to listen for ANYTHING that might hurt us. Once you reenter a loud area, much of our brains focus is on sound input.It’s kind of like when you close your eyes for a minute before turning the lights out, so that your eyes adjust to darkness faster. It’s a way to re-tune one of your senses.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
