1. Listen To The Sound of Rain
Or an ocean, or a jungle. I find calming noises make me feel safe and can replace the chattering noise in my head. I personally like to listen to these sounds and imagine myself relaxing in a cabin in Costa Rica during a summer storm. After a few moments of the gentle pummeling of rain drops on a roof, I’m usually out like a light.
White noise can also really help to block out street sounds or upstairs neighbors if that’s an issue for you, and it keep your ears happy.
