With lots else going on, I've had a very hard time trying to meditate and just be still, my mind is just all over the place and won't settle down or stop obsessing. But last night I had a really nice little moment where the rain was audible on the roof (we have a metal roof and the upper floor is tucked into it so it's very easy to hear when the rain is going) and just this lovely little moment of quiet and rain.

I've always loved the rain.

Oh that's a nice one. I'll sometimes put on those 10 hour rain fall youtube videos, especially as background at work. I had one that was forest sounds but my coworker was wigging out at the bird song and thought there was a bird in the building somewhere, but even after he knew it was the recording it just kept bugging him. :rofl: So I found one without birds.

:) I love listening to some ASMR or soft rain YouTube videos, etc.. I don't mind some birdsong, but preferably in the morning/daytime, not at bedtime. I can't handle the sound of mosquitoes or bugs though. :D

LOL oh goodness no! No mosquitoes! :scarey:

I really like that this site lets you choose your combination of ambiances. When my kindle still worked I used to put on some similar white noise things but once that died I lost it. Ah well.

Nathan Pyle, the author of the Strange Planet comic, put out a Twitter thread of animations for guided deep breathing.

My daughter used to attend hackathons and at one event she was part of the team who created the winning app and it was something similar to that. It was for people with anxiety and it was also a visual breathing type exercise. :)
