    If it's raining when I go to sleep I'll always

    open the window a little just so I can hear it better and I always find I nod off so easily. There's something about it I find relaxing.

    Listening To The Rain

    Lying here, trying to switch off after another frenetic day of caring for patients. The rain sounds especially loud on my tin roof. My garden is drenched and it will be a muddy walk to the car in the morning. I love the rain, the louder the better, it's comforting- kind of...

    My mom thinks its weird

    because rain always keeps her up but I love falling asleep to the sound of rain hitting the window panes. Its like a little rhythm to help me sleep. I find it very relaxing and calm and, well, natural.

    I love the feeling when I close my eyes

    and just focus on the sound of the raindrops hitting the roof, softly. It's very relaxing.

    I Always Open The Window

    I always open the window when it's raining at night so I can hear the rain better. I love the smell of the cold air during a rain, and the chill from it on my face when my body is wrapped in blankets helps me to sleep.

    Tonight

    Tonight isn't raining. I feel sad because i don't like sleeping when there's no rain. I like it when it really storms outside, I don't know why but it makes me feel secure and calm. I love thunder especially, its nice :) Anyone else feel the same bout stormy nights?

    But I Can't Seem To Get Up

    So, there's the double-edged part of that one. A great big thunderstorm works like a sleeping pill on me. I'm groggy and sleepy. Good thing I live in Houston, TX where we never have thunderstorms ever. :)

    I Love Sleeping When It Rains!

    I love to sleep when it rains outside. Under a tin roof when raining is the best soothing sound ever! I live on a farm and across the road from my farm is a creek, and when it rains I love the sound of the rushing water and rain. I am going to change my shingle roof to a tin roof...

    A Calm Sound

    I love the rain, especially the spring and summer seasons. I also love the smell of rain and hearing the rain hit the house or seeing the lightning strike down on the earth. But also I love sleeping during rain storms because it has this calm and relaxing sound that it has when...

    Deep, Restful Sleep

    I love the sound of rain hitting the roof while I'm going to sleep. It sounds so soothing and calming to me. It helps me drift into a deep restful sleep, and allows me to feel fully energized when I wake up the next morning. The soft, fast pelts of the raindrops falling down onto...

    For As Long As I Can Remember…

    …I have found the sound of rain on my windows and the ground outside very peaceful and relaxing. The rain adds a peacefulness to the atmosphere along with the gentle scent of damp foliage that only wet weather can offer. This is one of the most sleep inducing situations for me...

    It's A Pleasant Background Noise

    that blocks out other noise. And it smells good. Where I am in British Columbia it rains a fair bit so I'm lucky. I do get a fair number of peaceful nights.

    Rain On A Tin Roof

    I grew up near a creek that flooded quickly when we had too much rain. We would go across the creek and stay with neighbors to avoid getting flooded in where we couldn't go to school. These neighbors lived in a cool,large farm house with a tin roof. I loved the sound of the...

    I live on a main road

    so when it rains the road goes quiet so all I have to do Is listen to the rain falling on the Forrest at the back and I'm out!

    Nature'S Lullaby

    Soothing.

    Thunderstorms on a tin roof, amazing. I find the sound of rain very soothing and relaxing. It's so nice to fall asleep with it in the background. So I downloaded an app which mimics the sound, it's nice but nothing is better then the real thing.

    Me too. I also sleep better naked. It started when I was a young teen. I like the feel of soft silk sheet and blanket against my naked body.
