Do you have a certain sound that just gets on your nerves and gets in your head like nails on a chalkboard or hard core rap,so what about the sounds that bring us comfort?

I like to fall asleep to 'Family Guy', but my wife says it has the most annoying sounds she has ever heard, and I suppose the sound of Peter Griffin and his nonsense can be quite annoying to non-fans, so we settled for 'Shawshank Redemption'
Morgan Freeman's voice is comforting.

What are the sounds that relax us the most?

  • The sound of someone humming. I would think that would depend on their musical ear, off key humming may have a reverse effect.
  • Trains. Although I don’t think a train rolling down the track at 2am would calm me, but apparently the overall sound of the train is rather soothing.
  • Shower Running: The sound of the shower running has been identified by some as a calming sound.
  • Silence: Sometimes its best when you hear nothing at all.
  • Rain on the window: Now that’s something we don’t have to wait for in the southern tier, there is always a chance of rain on the window
  • The Television: I would agree to a point that TV can relax you, but avoid programs like sports or reruns of I Love Lucy.
  • The Radio: Yes I knew we would get into this category
  • Birds Chirping: This is one of the most popular sounds that relax people the most, as long as it is not one of those loud cackling big mouth birds.
