 World's Most Relaxing Room

Scientists claim to have created the world's most relaxing room to calm nerves and escape from the daily grind as the economic gloom catches on globally.

The room features soft green lighting, artificial blue skies, the scent of lavender in the breeze and the dulcet tones of a low frequency lullaby capable of soothing the most savage of beasts.

"The pace of modern-day life, credit crunch and financial crisis is making many people feel very stressed and so we have created this space to help them relax," the Telegraph quoted creator and psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman, as saying.

The University of Hertfordshire is opening its mellowing multimedia attraction to the public as part of its Health and Human Sciences Research Institute Showcase.

Visitors to the exhibition can enjoy a 15-minute session in the relaxing room and experience the "mild sensory deprivation" that the University claims could benefit "students facing exams and businesses wishing to lower their employees' stress-related absenteeism".

Prof Wiseman said: "Previous work has shown that these colours, sounds and smells all help people relax, but this is the first time that they have been combined in this way, and it will be fascinating to look at the effect on visitors' relaxation levels."

The exhibition runs until October 24 at the University of Hertfordshire's de Havilland campus.
