This article will help you find some of the best relaxing sounds and soothing music. Whether you are looking for music to help you overcome insomnia, to meditate to or just have a moment of tranquility, you have come to the right place if you want to know where to find good quality calming sounds.
In this series of articles, I have been presenting some of the best examples of relaxing, calming, beautiful and soothing music.
This article is about minimal relaxing sounds, ranging from simple birdsong or ocean waves to more complex meditation music – ideal for falling asleep to, meditating or just when you need something simple and soothing to relax to.
From white noise to ocean sounds
There are several different possible avenues to explore with relaxing sounds. This article will show you where to find the following:
Animal and nature sounds
Websites and Apps to create your own relaxing sounds
Specially created meditation music
White noise generators
Animal and nature sounds
The place to go for free relaxing nature sounds is YouTube – especially if you like having videos to accompany them. There are many videos of rainforest sounds, but actually one of my favorites is a video and audio of a stream and woodland in Pennsylvania.
Another great sound to relax to is crickets at nighttime. Here is a video that demonstrates how peaceful they are to listen to perfectly:
A lot of nature videos have new-age music accompanying them, but this next one is a gem of rain sounds with thunder as well:
One of the most relaxing sounds you could ever hear has to be the sounds of ocean waves. This next video and audio sounds amazing and will transport you to the seaside in no time. Look out for the man that walks by and says ‘good morning’ after 16 minutes though!
If you have an appreciation for classic rock, the concept album or revolutionary modern artists, you will (or have already) certainly enjoy one of Pink Floyd’s more prominent albums: A Momentary Lapse of Reason. Let me begin by telling you, the reader, that this is not a review of the album’s instrumental synthesis, or its lyrical compositions neither the piece’s relevance to contemporary societies.
The intentions of this article are to help you through tense or stressful periods in your life.
How can Pink Floyd help me relieve stress?
From beginning to end, this is an album that will take you through a mindful journey. Whether you relate to the lyrical contents or not, makes no difference: this is the goal and desire of the concept album. The artist’s intentions are to conceptualize an idea, a motif or theme of importance to any number of diverse audiences. Thought-provoking, emotionally connecting; whilst your ears open and your mind becomes attentive, your previous stresses and tension will surely lift. Think of it as a distraction to your current reality, as you would be distracted with playing video games, pointless conversation or reading.
By listening to A Momentary Lapse of Reason, you will relax, enter the canyons of your mind and experience an alternate reality.
How does ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’ expand my mind?
Do you understand the meaning by the lyrics? Can you identify which instruments are playing? How do you feel as the album progresses? As the album is largely instrumental (filled momentum heightening intros, enriching guitar solos and sensational outros), the audience is left with a multitude of unconscious decisions to make.
– Reflection of feelings/thoughts after a song
– Visual imagination of album
– Technical appreciation for sounds/lyrics
(Do you see how you may lose yourself in the concept album?)
From personal understanding, I grew up listening to rock music. My father would regularly sit in the basement and forget the day’s torments with an album experience. Pink Floyd is my favourite artist to listen and zone out (alongside The Who’s Tommy and Quadrophenia). Any time I have listened to these albums, my worries leave me, my mind rests and enjoys a journey only music can provide. Whether its stress from:
– Work, school, relationships
– Mental exhaustion or depression/anxiety
Give yourself a break, life is not meant to be stressful, it is to be enjoyed and appreciated. Slap on some Pink Floyd and conquer your stress.

What is ASMR?
ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, and it refers to a physical and psychological reaction to stimuli, inducing feelings of calm and a pleasurable tingling sensation. Nicknames for ASMR have included “brain massage,” “head tingle,” and “head orgasm,” which all sound awfully silly to many people, but to a person who experiences these episodes, they are apt descriptions. Other names for the sensation have included “AIHO” (for “Attention-Induced Head Orgasm”) and “AIE” (“Attention Induced Euphoria”).
The term “ASMR” was first coined in February 2010 by the Facebook group Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response Group. The group was created by Jennifer Allen, who now acts as the team organizer for the ASMR Research Team. It has since become the most commonly used term for these episodes.
Not a lot of research currently exists on ASMR, primarily because it is a difficult phenomenon to study. Stimuli can vary tremendously from person to person, and, as previously stated, some people do not experience ASMR at all. It is generally accepted that ASMR episodes typically begin with a tingling sensation in the head that then travels to other parts of the body to varying degrees. It is also important to emphasize that ASMR causes a euphoric kind of sensation, but is induced without the aid of drugs or sexual activity.
It has been suggested that ASMR could potentially provide a drug-free solution for people dealing with stress, anxiety, and insomnia. Again, no research currently exists to support such claims, and conducting such research has its obstacles. However, individuals report that they typically experience increased feelings of relaxation and even sleepiness when ASMR gets triggered. Some would argue that the effects of ASMR are similar to those experienced in meditation.
I didn’t listen to this in its entirety yet, but it should be great. It’s 22 minutes of a soft speaking relaxing voice, with all the subtle sounds you’d hear at a spa. I’m usually grossed out at the sound of people clipping their nails in public, but I didn’t mind it at all in this clip.
A simple search for “ASMR” on YouTube conjures up hundreds of videos intended to trigger these feel-good sensations. It is an ASMR junkie’s paradise, where one can satiate one’s appetite for known triggers or seek out potential new ones. Some of the more popular videos have literally had tens of thousands of views, and yet they feature mundane activities such as drawing, tapping, whispering, and unboxing new items. Some ASMR videos feature whispered descriptions or explanations on how to do things (like, say, play poker), and still, others involve role-playing.
I personally could never get into the role-playing videos (honestly, I find them a tad creepy), but they evidently work for thousands of other folks. Role plays include makeovers, various medical examinations and consultations, massages, and haircuts. A person watching the video can imagine his or herself in the role of a patient or client being tended to. In this way, ASMR responses triggered by close attention can have their fix too, even if it is an artificial, virtual attention they are receiving.
Sometimes the most telling thing that comes out of ASMR YouTube videos are the comments from viewers. Comments such as “This is better than weed” and “I got so many tingles at this i think i broke my ASMR…” express the appreciation for and enjoyment had by viewers. So long as folks are getting their fix, at least we can find comfort in the fact that this is one high that does not pose a [known] threat to our well-beings.
My early experiences with aromatherapy weren’t much more than lighting a cheap candle in the living room and relaxing in front of the tv with a bowl of ice cream. This may sound funny to some but it really just shows how little I knew about aromatherapy and it’s true benefits. Of course, I’m a lot wiser now (smile). I feel that being a business owner obligates you to keep yourself educated about the field you working, in this case, using aromatherapy for stress relief. I’ve always been quite interested in learning more about natural remedies and cures. Aromatherapy is just one area that I’ve chosen to learn more about. Now I’m going to share some of my learnings about aromatherapy for stress relief.
Contrary to popular belief, aromatherapy is not just about sitting around sniffing on sweet smelling stuff. It’s so much more than that. While aromatherapy is a holistic form of therapy administered through your sense of smell, it actually works by releasing the scents from essential oils. Essential oils are derived from plants and have many benefits including the ability to relieve stress. The composition of essential oils is what makes them therapeutic aromatherapy can be a little costly if you start buying an array of various essential oils. To create a small amount of essential oil, it takes the use of a lot of herbs in their natural state.
Aromatherapy for stress relief can be done right at home. You can administer it topically or by inhaling. You can massage essential oils directly on to your skin, add a few drops of essential oils to you bath water or shower gel. Another easier way is to use products that are already formulated with essential oils such as Dead Sea Salts. If you want to practice aromatherapy by just inhaling, an aromatherapy diffuser is a great device. It gently reaks up the molecules in the essential oils without destroying the potency. The scent from the oils are then released into the air. There are many types of aroma diffusers but the best ones are the multi-functional aroma diffusers. With these aroma diffusers, you get more bang for your buck.
An effective way to use aromatherapy for stress relief is to combine a couple of different essential oils, creating what’s called a blend. Some of the most common essential oils are Lavender, Peppermint, Jasmine, Ylang ylang, Bergamot, Lemongrass, Neroli, and Rose Geranium. Each of these essential oils has the power to relieve stress when inhaled through the senses. By simply a absorbing these precious oils into the nervous system through the skin or by inhaling for a few moments, a full day’s worth of stress and tension can melt away. Other essential oils can be used in aromatherapy for stress relief such as Frankincense, Tea Tree, Sandalwood, Eucalyptus, and Chamomile are good antiseptics.
Note: Pregnant women and nursing mothers should consult a doctor before practicing aromatherapy with certain essential oils.
Alternative : Watch this ASMR video to reduce your stress
Somehow Maria (that’s her name in case you didn’t know) manages to squeeze 18 relaxing minutes out of a video on how to fold a towel. Maria’s voice is the equivalent of a deep tissue verbal massage of the mind. Oh, what a voice! She’s truly heaven sent for all of us who are stressed out, wound up and a bundle of nerves at the end of the day.
Some of you may be asking yourselves, “What the heck is ASMR??” Well I’m sure a lot of you know what it is, but just didn’t know it.
ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It’s just a fancy way of explaining that tingly, pleasant feeling you get in your head when watching, or more often, listening to certain things. Some of the common ASMR triggers consist of soft clicks, scraping sounds and of course relaxing voices. Sometimes just watching someone perform a meticulous task could be a trigger. I would guess that the triggers are endless, seeing as everyone has different tastes, so I’ll just focus on the common triggers.
That being said, I’ve gone through the site and compiled my top-10 best ASMR inducing videos. Of course these are my picks, and may not do it for you. If you have some ASMR gems, please share them in the comments section. Enjoy!
The best of the best on the site! This soft-spoken virtual trip to the eye doctor will turn you to jelly
Any of Bob Ross’. It was the effect his voice had on me that actually inspired the creation of Soothetube!
Lita massage video. She’s the Queen Bee of relaxing voices. And hearing her voice while watching her give a really good massage ranks her high on this list.

I really enjoy a relaxing voice and the sound of pen on paper. This has both.
You may recognize her voice from the #1 video. Yes, GlisteningWhispers is awesome.

Watching an expert iron a shirt. It’s as simple as that, and it’s amazing.
A guided meditation video. Love the way he speaks.
Listening to the sound of nails tapping on a table is a sure-fire way to relax. She’s also got a nice voice, and really nice cuticles! Actually I don’t even know what a cuticle is, but her’s are probably nice.
