Musical Sounds in Nature

I cannot decide if I am a musician because I love nature, or whether I just love being outdoors because I am a musician.  Quite truly, there is nothing that can compare to time spent in nature.  It soothes the soul, invigorates the body, and reconnects you to what is authentic.

When you need a break or are trying to relax at the end of the day, not all of us are fortunate enough to be able to slip outdoors to listen to musical sounds in nature.  Fortunately, there are some quality music videos that bring the experience indoors for your enjoyment.  Just listen to the sound of rain from a nice, warm interior!

Just as you can enjoy a downpour from indoors, you can also take a virtual trip to the rain forest.  Yep, you can still stay dry!  Close your eyes and enjoy these wonderful musical sounds in nature!

By the way, there is nothing more soothing than the sounds of rain in the Pacific Northwest.  Take a listen:

Next to rain coming down in soothing sheets, the sound of waves crashing against the shore is very placating.  Its no wonder that so many sleep-inducing machines include wind and ocean sounds.

Close your eyes, relax and I dare you not to fall asleep:

Just be still for a few minutes each day.  No matter how busy you are, or what is going on in your life, unroll your window, open the front door, go for a walk and let nature in.  If you have only 60 seconds in a given day, you can take a few deep breaths and reconnect with your soul.

Certainly you have one minute.  Hopefully, a few more than that.
