Overview

This page provides ways to make you feel like you’re somewhere else: such as sleeping in a tropical rainstorm.

PROTIP: Download sound files and play it in a loop. Then you won’t be sucking network from others on the internet.

Web pages to bookmark

https://rainymood.com is simple. You hear a rain shower with distant thunder immediately upon entering the site.

10 hours on YouTube video sounds like being in an airplane. (Wear a tight seat belt and sit with your knees touching a wall for a more realistic experience)

https://www.noisli.com provides 3 different white noises and enables you to combine several sounds for productivity or to relax:
rain, storm, birds, leaves russeling, mountain stream, seashore, dripping water, fireplace, crickets, coffee shop, fan, and coffee house.

https://coffitivity.com has ambient sounds “Morning Murmur”, “Lunchtime Lounge”, and “University Undertones” so you can pretend you’re among people. Optionally, save the money it takes to fly to Paris, Brazil, and Texas to hear what ambient sounds like there. The site quotes:

According to a peer-reviewed study out of the University of Chicago, “A moderate level of ambient noise is conducive to creative cognition.” In a nutshell, this means being a tiny bit distracted helps you be more creative.

https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/binauralBrainwaveGenerator.php has wonderful descriptions of many sounds (after you scroll down the pleading for money).

  • Sounds take several seconds to load.

  • The site also shows photos of the site where the sound recording was taken, along with a travelogue by the recording engineer.

  • Listeners post their revervie about each soundscape.

  • My personal favorite: Furry Friend - that’s cat purr, without the allergy.
