Stress Relief: Relax to the sounds of Nature

Updated on January 3, 2014

Nearly everyone faces stress every week though it may be at different levels. For some its, travelling to work, for some its being at work, for some it’s having to attend to so many needs within the family etc.

It’s important we take a break from time to time but what do we do at this break time.

  • Smoke?
  • Listen to music?
  • Watch Telly?
  • Lie down?
  • Go for a walk ?
  • Have a drink?
  • Eat? Drink?
  • Have a bubble bath?


¸.·'★ One new way I have found, is to listen to Sounds of Nature.

Sometimes before I listen to about 10 minutes of sounds of Nature, I fall asleep before it finishes playing.

a) It could be the sound of Waves crashing on the beach.

c) It could he sound of birds chirping.

b) or the sound of falling Rain.

a) Sounds of Waves crashing on the beach

b) Sounds of birds chirping

c) Sound of falling rain

They are real recorded sounds of nature. If you also would like to enjoy the sounds of nature in the comfort of your home. Check out this website or search for similar websites.

It’s even better if you have a mobile phone, you can open the website on your mobile and place it by you, while you lie down.

It’s very relaxing and calming.

Stay Stress-free. (◕‿◕)

      I agree with you completely on this Lady_E.

      I love the sounds of nature. Often, when I am out walking, I listen for the sounds of birds, leaves moving as the wind blows, or water flowing through the small river near where I live, or the waves at the lake front. It is very relaxing.

      This is a very good and brilliant advice. These days are so much stress and most of it unnecessary.

      @DeBorrah - Thanks so much. I am glad you enjoyed the Hub and hope you get lots of time to relax. I know you are a very busy lady. :)

      @Sue Adams - Oh Sue... you live in a little Paradise. I like your way of life. Let me know when any houses in that area are up for sale. I'll be your new neighbour. Thanks.

      @Dexter - Cheers. Glad you stopped by. Hope all is well in the "White House".

      @Dave Matthews - That's so cool and refreshing. My nearest Botanical Garden is about 30 mins Drive. I like that you do that. Hope you take nuts for the Squirrels..... :)

      Lady_E: Thank you for this reminder. My favorite thing to do is to go through a slow stroll through a nearby Botanical Garden and simply watch and listen to nature, the birds flitting around, the squirrels and chipmunks playing tag with each other, the breeze blowing through the trees, the babbling of the stream that flows through, even the insects like the cricket. It all brings a peace to me and helps bring me back into perspective with what's important and forget what is not.

      Yes, you give some good suggestions here but nothing beats the real thing. I live in remote Southern Spain on a piece of land I chose specifically for its natural sounds. No cars can be heard on our dirt track, only roosters in the morning, the bells of a herd of goats feeding on the hill side in the afternoon, and some horses in the field, with birdsong all around the wooden hut I live in around which I planted some 200 trees in our large garden of Eden. I feel very lucky and privileged to be able to live here, getting up at sunrise and going to sleep at sunset, without a television, just a computer and YouTube to keep me updated with grass roots, unadulterated news.

      @Acaetnna - Lovely to see you. I'm glad you enjoy such relaxation techniques. Wasn't to sure I'd like the rain forest. I was thinking I might hear mosquitoes buzzing in the background but know that you wrote you like it - I will search for some. I think it's that world "Forest". lol.

      @Prasetio - Thanks so much. Glad you like the photo's. I hope you enjoy the relaxation techniques. Regards.

      I find the sound of falling rain soothing. The rhythm of the falling rain is therapeutic. Thanks for sharing.

      Wow...this was sound great. I should give more attention to this to relieve my stress. But I love music very much as the media to reduce stress. But the nature give us so many resources. So, why don't we use this for kindness? I love the pictures above. Rated up and useful!

      Great ideas LadyE there is nothing better to relieve stress than listening to the sounds of nature. I listen to the sounds of the rain forest and the sea gently lapping at the shore as well as other CDs that I have. The sounds are so exhilarating that stress levels are soon corrected.

      There's nothing i like better than listening to rain falling. I have one of those lighted pictures that shows a rippling waterfall with the sound of the water and birds singing, very peaceful. Thank you..Great hub..
