    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...

    Nature'S Lullaby

    That's how rain feels like when it soothes me to sleep. It's just easier to fall asleep to the sound of rain. And it helps me fall into a much deeper sleep too & gives me sweet dreams, like the gentle rain that falls...

    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?

    When It Rains..

    I love it when it rains! Especially on a summer night. We live on a farm and we just crack the window open to let the cool air in and the smell of the rain just fill the room. Then we like to listen to it hitting our tin roof is just really relaxing then to see the flash of...

    Falling asleep to the rain is one of those

    moments where you feel like you're perfectly alone and peaceful. The rain washes away all the problems and bad of the world and leaves only you. You're alone, but it's a good alone.

    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.

    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. :)

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I sleep better nude. I sleep deeper and longer. Sometimes I don't hear my alarm going off. It doesn't matter the season or the weather, I simply prefer sleeping naked.

    Let the air in, please! yes, getting into bed at first can be a bit chilly, but that rapidly dissipates. The difficulty is when it is too cold to have bits hanging out.
