healthline : How the Sound of Rain Can Calm an Anxious Mind
“Rain has a regular, predictable pattern,” says Emily Mendez, MS, EdS. “Our brain processes it as a calming, non-threatening noise. Which is why there are so many relaxation and meditation videos that feature the sound of rain.”
For Renee, rain noises are a staple in her daily meditation practice. “I don’t always want to be outside in the rain but I really enjoy reading a book by a window when it’s raining. That’s probably my ideal space in life,” she says. “Which is why it’s easy for me to use it while meditating. It’s a calming presence.”
‘Pink noise’ has been getting buzz lately as the newest innovation in sleep therapy. A mixture of high and low frequencies, pink noise sounds a lot like falling water.
It’s much more soothing than the acute, hissing-like quality of white noise. A small 2012 studyTrusted Source found pink noise substantially improved the sleep of participants by reducing brain wave complexity.
