I Love Falling Asleep To The Sound Of Rain

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41,095 People

    I think it is called white noise,

    where the beautiful repetitive nature of background sound can make you feel so calm and relaxed it becomes so easy to just drift off to the pitter patter of the rain falling on the buildings around you.

    Sometimes I'll just lay in my bed

    and listen to the waves of heavy rain pass over the roof, waiting for the deep bass of thunder. It's so nice to fall asleep too.

    I need the sound of rain to sleep,

    I have a white noise app on my phone that plays rain sounds, but it's never as good as the real deal!

    I'm laying next to my beautiful daughter,

    listening to her sweet little snores. The only other sound is the rain running off the gutters and tapping the window above my head.. So peaceful and in this moment I am grateful for all I have.

    My dad's house has a screened-in porch.

    It's high up, and surrounded by trees. I put up a hammock, and it is so wonderful. When I can't take anymore of everyone's crap, or just feel awful for any reason, I always go out to my hammock. In the middle of the night, when everyone else is asleep, I'll sneak out there and...

    I woke up to the sound of the rain in my window

    pane. There is something about the rain that makes me emotional. Maybe because it's related to tears or even beyond that. :-( On the lighter and happy side...I like the taste of the rain running down my face, it makes me feel free. Rain is needed because it cleanses, it makes...

    Rimjhim rimjhim sound.

    How nice to hear. Halka halka feelings. Aadho Aadho the eyes about to close. Sleepy sleepy mood. Nothing to think, nothing to do, no hurry for anything, what a wonderful time to pass during the rain.

    As in laying in bed thinking of all the good

    and bad that I've done in my life. Setting goals so that I may one day be a "success" in today's world. When I feel a light cool breeze sneak threw my window and shower me in goose bumps. I breathe in a slightly familiar smell that calms me and helps me to let my mind be free. I...

    I know some people feel uncomfortable

    or nervous during a storm, but they've always given me a sense of calm and peace. It's like a lullabye :)

    The kids and I slept in a bit this morning.

    It's been drizzling all morning. Now it's raining heavy and thundering. I opened up all the windows to hear and smell the rain. Perfect day for working on my research paper, working a puzzle, and cleaning out closets.

    I love the fact that it's raining right now.

    I can fall asleep to the best sound. I feel completely calm when it rains. I don't know what it is about the sound of rain but it is amazing. I love rain!!

    ...but, sadly, tonight it stopped

    before I could get into bed. More than the sound, I like the smell of it, the effect it has to cleanse the air (esp. when I'm in an more urban area), and the way it feels as if you're inside a gentle storm as you fall asleep to the heavy pounding on the rooftops....

    There's just something

    so gentle about it, the soft sounds of the earth drinking in the water just beyond my window. It's like a lullaby.

    There's nothing like falling asleep to the

    beautiful sound of rain. It's so relaxing. All of your problems subside as you drift into solitude. I wish it rained more in LA, at least at night. Pisces are suckers for the rain anyways - we're water signs :P

    I have always loved storms!

    When other people get nervous about bad weather I get excited! I love to sit outside & watch the dark clouds move in...and falling rain is so soothing at night.

    I really miss the sound of rain

    as I go to bed. I live in California, and our draught is so bad that I can't even remember the last time it rained. Nice to read these stories and remember the experience though.
