I remember when i had my iPhone, i downloaded those stupid apps that said they can help you feel better throught white noises sound therapy. So, I listened to a bunch of noises, radio waves and whatnot and i have to say..... not working. What IS working for me is my tv in the background. I like to hear people talking in the background. Water drops also calm me alot, probably why i love rain so much. Wood burning, oh yes.... i love the sound of it... wish i have a fireplace. What noise stresses me alot are actual people talking... weird i know.. especially loud mouth ones. I hate summer because i have to open all the windows. Having to hear my neighbors cheering and enjoying the barbecue and to see all the people enjoying themselves is not very good for my moral... not one bit... So instead of sleeping in the room closest to the backyard, I have to sleep in the room closer to the street where i can hear cars passing by every seconds. Yes, i prefer that to the neighbor's cheers. Anyway sorry for the little rant... What sound/noise helps you to relax? & what sound/noise stress you most?
