What sounds do you like? The sound of noisy family gatherings? Or the sound of silence? How about the leaves rustling in the wind? What really relaxes me, are sounds. Are you like this? Do certain sounds relax you to the point of nearly falling asleep on the spot? It happens to me all the time.
My favourite sounds are: Someone else turning the pages of a book they’re reading. Someone chewing gum and cracking it. Tissue paper being being separated to wrap something in a quiet store. The sound of scissors and fabric being cut on a table. Someone typing quietly in another room. Whispering. Someone flossing their teeth. (that’s a strange one) Somebody wrapping a present. The store clerk folding the new things I bought and then putting them in a new plasticky bag. My baby sleeping. The sound of water in the bath tub. Pencil on paper. On cooking shows, when they stir stuff like batter, or salmon tar tar. I am not sure why all of these sounds make my eyes close and my body go limp, but they do. What sounds relax you? Punch in the word DAMA for 750 points. How does THAT sound?
