I don't really enjoy being in the rain. However, I love being indoors during the rain - just listening to the rain on the windows is so goddamn relaxing. I'm pretty sure there's an evolutionary component to it
Edit: Quick shout-out to Rainy Mood - this site is great for falling to sleep to. replace the 'youtube' in any youtube URL with 'rainymood' and you can have it played over a song (I recommend Blue in Green by Miles Davis, or just mellow night jazz in general)
If you'd like to pretend it's raining outside so you have an excuse to stay inside and on reddit.
EDIT: Thanks for the gold. And people are saying to play http://endlessvideo.com/watch?v=HMnrl0tmd3k in another tab. Or use mynoises.net or another site that gives you more options.
Open these in other tabs, I can't tell if I'm aroused or terrified I'm about to get a lecture about fox hunts
Please, open these links in different tabs and then watch the GIF, to understand what I really mean.
Please, open these links in different tabs and then watch the GIF, to get the full effect.
This is a modified version of a submission I did for r/treecomics, but I like how it came out and I wanted to share it with you as well.
I'll be civilized. I'll be asking questions while doing this.
TO THE PEOPLE OF THE FUTURE: you have a looooong way ahead of you.
So get classy: sit back, relax and open the following 3 tabs:
Now click, and start your adventure.
There are easier ways to get laid than forcing yourself to watch Twilight. Here is one that's guaranteed to work at least once.
Open these two links in tabs (1 and 2) and put this one on full screen. You can get it to work more than once if you throw in a back rub, dinner, or some kind of favourite item of the intended sexual partner.
There. I just saved you two long, boring, boobless hours.
Time to get classy, Reddit
(from a post ~ 1 year ago)
For added class, save to your desktop a shortcut to open all three.
Copy and paste the following:
>start "" http://www.rainymood.com/

>start "" http://endlessvideo.com/watch?v=HMnrl0tmd3k
Save as Classy.Bat
EDIT: This is for Windows only btw
God damn, can you imagine Undertaker walking to the ring to "Ain't No Grave" while it rained? Holy shit.
edit: Open this and this; proceed to shit pants.
This is my favorite combination:
1. open this link in first tab.
2. open this one in another.
3. and, finaly, open this and stay on it
Just gonna tac on to your comment because i feel it is necessary. This is my favorite way to relax: open 3 tabs, each for the rain, fire, and jazz. Enjoy, my friends. I sleep like a baby to this
Also, try turning off the fire. You'll get colder.
Several reasons. Plus a bonus to play in the background while reading my post: http://www.rainymood.com/
At least in summer, usually when it's raining there's more dampness and coolness in the air, and that makes for a more comfortable sleeping experience, much like surf at a sea or lake shore.
The rain itself generates a very soothing white noise which can help us sleep as well. The pitter-patter and quiet rustling sound of gently falling raindrops hitting the surfaces around us is very relaxing to us.
And it gives us an excuse to nap. I can't go outside and do stuff without getting all wet, so I'll stay here and snooze. Yeah... that sounds great. I think I'll just close my eyes and not worry ab-zzzzzzzzzzzzz......
I spend at least 2-3 hours in bathrobe per day. By bathrobe I mean only bathrobe, nothing under it. Also there is always some music when I'm home mixed with rain and accompanied by hot tea. It always feels classy. I'm a guy..
Rainymood.com has improved since then, and you can now combine it with Youtube videos - like this http://www.rainymood.com/watch?v=HMnrl0tmd3k
That'll save you an entire tab :D
Meh, the creative process is different for different people, some may work better with music and some may work better without. I'm not a designer myself, but when I write/code/have a big project I'm working on I feel much more motivated and productive with Rainymood and the Skyrim OST.
It could very well be a product of acclimatisation (I worked well in the past with music playing, so it puts me in "productive work mode"). In fact, I'm sure it has more to do with that than background noise suddenly giving me brilliant writing powers!
I really appreciate the minor flaws, the fiat implied in her simplicity.
Her tonality is something you'd never hear, but always hope for in a monotonous, tone deaf modern musical scene. She's not a perfect singer, doesn't have the "perfect" body.
She is undeniably, inescapably <em>Real</em>, and that is so much better.
Until someone shares a good audio book I got you covered:
Some of that Shire music
A little bit of rain (click on it's little speaker to soften it)
(/hatwithit) It was dark and stormy night in Canterlot... the only thing wetter that than the faded gray sidewalk outside was my whisky glass but even that would run dry soon. Then she entered... He red dress was a shade shy of her lipstick but just as radiant...
I spent some time last night adding rain to this amazing photo: https://www.flickr.com/photos/megane_wakui/16578774079/
I highly commend checking out the rest of their work: https://www.flickr.com/photos/megane_wakui/
And of course, http://www.rainymood.com/ in the background can't hurt.
The (imho) best combination was proposed to me under a RedditNoir post:
RainyMood + Midnight Walker by Bohren & Der Club of Gore
Then read one of the top comments aloud.
I'm not sure about that particular song, but that genre is called 'Noir'. Like in the jazz clubs in old detective movies. Here's a link to about 50 videos of Noir to choose from. The top couple videos alone should keep you happy for a while.
Put Rainymood.com behind it and sit back and relax. You can adjust the level by clicking Here for an example how.
Batman looking over Gotham from the ledge of a building, small murmurs are heard coming from batman as the camera slowly spins around while zooming in slowly, camera stops and you all you see is Batman's eyes really serious look then (que http://www.rainymood.com/) lightning flashes with the sound of rolling thunder and it begins to rain on the dark nights face water slowly dripping off the nose of his mask...then the murmurs turn into words and he belts out loud into the heavens!!!!
Batman: I can be your hero baby!!! I can kiss away the pain!!!
hears sound and wakes up groggily
looks out the window
"The fu-....OH FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!"
looks out the window
"What the fuck?! How is this even po-"

"What the fuck!? What the...."
remembers about Joker in ME2
"What the shit? What the shit?!"

Btw, try the above link together with http://www.rainymood.com/
I had Moonlight Sonata on in the background because of the Google doodle and it gave it an interesting added level of gravitas. For bonus points also have rainy mood in another tab.
I've had The fragrance of dark coffee and Rainy Mood bookmarked in my toolbar for a long time (play them together), but I love that yours in condensed into one site (less tabs open!)
I enjoy both versions, but maybe for different moods. Does your site have different music playing each time? I've only had it open for a few minutes. Yours is definitely more relaxed/pensive! I bookmarked it. Thanks for sharing :-)
If you're a really big fan of studying to the sound of rain/white noise, check out RainyMood. They used to have a really cool site with tons of options....which they have now put out as a paid app. Still, you get free basic use of their site and if you really like it you can buy the app. Enjoy!
Can't do the steps when you're too far gone in an episode babe.
You're able to type here, so go to this website and turn on the rain sound. Crank it up.
Name 5 things you can touch
Name 5 things you can see
Name 5 things you can taste
Name 5 things you can hear
Name 5 things you can smell
Picture each item in your head. If you realize you've wandered back into hell and can't remember where you left off, start over. Don't be frustrated at yourself for forgetting, it's part of the exercise and not a failure. You will forget and start over several times.
Each time you start over, you're manually redirecting your brain like trying to throw the brakes on a steam engine. Keep trying.
Perfect gaming weather.
I used to visit http://www.rainymood.com/ from time to time, though I thought the site was once animated in addition to having it's sound loop. Maybe the animation's shifted off to their apps.
I would also love some really good sound effects of rain hitting different types of shelters. I may just leave my roof wooden if I can hear that amazingly satisfying sound.
EDIT: Or this sound of a sheet metal roof. mmmm
I use that and two other endless loops as background study noise. I submit them for your enjoyment (yes, open 3 tabs and listen to them all at the same time).
Wait...they removed Rain from WoW?
There was nothing that quite compared to that feeling you get in Ungoro crater when the rain stops, that eerie silence...then you realise you were listening to torrential and oddly calm rain...and you miss it.
For anyone who misses the rains of Africa... http://www.rainymood.com/ (As a South African in Norway, this helps with my homesickness)
Vielleicht für die nächsten Sonntage noch die Anleitung für alle:
Neue Tabs öffnen mit:
zurücklehnen und den Thread genießen!
If you dig around with Chrome after pressing F12, you can even find the .m4a and extract it for non-web-based listening. The storm was made using a variety of creative commons licensed sounds, if I recall correctly.
Staples, like you said: facebook, gmail, youtube, reddit, twitter (3-7 tabs)
Transients: articles from reddit, quick lookups on topics you want to know more about, things to buy on amazon, etc. (0-20 tabs x2 if you are researching/programming)
All the transient tabs you forget about: (20-600 tabs)
So, most people run around 10 active tabs nowadays (if they use a few blog/news sites or reddit). Heavy users and forgetful users can jump up to 30-40 tabs pretty easily.
Look for cool things to have open like http://www.rainymood.com/
Favorite: rain hitting anything. I love http://www.rainymood.com but the real thing is so satisfying.
Least favorite: My old alarm clock. Just that horrifying MEHR MEHR MEHR MEHR sound. I know it's more of the associating it with waking up but it's such a grating noise. I don't even like the calm xylophone sound my iphone makes now because of the association but at least it's not... that.
On the train, at work in the office, at night (our upstair neighbour has some problem with a noisy fridge and he refuses to turn it down)
If I dont have ear plugs handy I just use http://www.rainymood.com/
for all the newcomers, follow the simple tadallagashsteps before you begin your travels:
>Good evening gentleman/ladies.
>1. Get out your drink of choice.
>2. open 3 tabs on your favorite browser.
>3. On the first tab
>4. On another tab
>5. On the last
This GIF Sound goes best with Rainy Mood.
I've always thought of Parsee's story to be very sad, imagine how many people she seen come and go, and imagine how much she wished to go with them, just to have a glimpse beyond her reality. The pain she carries intensifies with each and every traveller until anger and jealousy finally consumes her. Her past, present, and future will be forever spent in deep jealousy of others. And after you defeat her, she's just thrown aside, hurt and injured, more angry and jealous then before. That just kills me inside.
Artist is awkwardkuroki.
I wish there were more people to post videos, sounds, photos, anything of rain. It's so beautiful, the smell is incredible, the feeling of walking throuh a storm envigorating, witnessing lightning followed by thunder is amazing, or just knowing that it's calm out as the rain washes pollution out of the sky, the streets are empty and there are only fellow rain-lovers out with you. Summer, winter, indoors studying, reading, watching netflix, going for a walk in the city, forest, any place. Rain is incredible. I'd love to see more of it on that sub.
I constantly have this open on my browser.
You probably know this if you love the soundtrack but if you haven't listen to Comptine d'Un Autre Été with Rainy mood at the same time. Gives me an eargasm.
I was listening to this and this, I was just sitting paying no attention to time at all. I was also doing homework so, yeah.
Absolutely beautiful. This game represents some of my fondest memories as a child.
Here's a treat: Open this and this in separate tabs, obtain a beverage of your choice, relax on a comfy chair, and stay classy.
For a romantic night at home, I open three tabs...
1) one with that continuous rain,
2) this one http://endlessvideo.com/watch?v=HMnrl0tmd3k which is a continuous jazz track,
3) and this one http://endlessvideo.com/watch?v=DIx3aMRDUL4 which is an endless fireplace loop.
Edited because OP deleted his comment with the endless rain loop, here is the one I use http://www.rainymood.com/
I enjoy sitting quietly with my mind as blank as possible, sometimes with chill instrumental music (or rainymood.com) going in the background, for short lengths of time.
However, I do not ascribe to the beliefs in chakra, chi, or whatnot.
I simply enjoy a quiet, peaceful moment.
Indeed. I actually use this to go to sleep at least two or three nights a week: http://www.rainymood.com/
This is what rain sounds like. I don't think I've ever heard it rain here, the drops are so tiny they don't make a sound when they hit the ground.
Somebody once shared some really awesome music that went well with this gif.
Open this in one tab. Then open this in another.
Try listening to A, B and C together.
A - Lowest level
B - Maximum level
C - Mid/Maximum level
There was a briliant combination there:
I read the whole thing aloud. That was briliant.
Also can anyone tell me what movie the images were.
Here's the fireplace
And here's the jazz
Annnd here's the rain
Open up all three at the same time and BAM you are now 10 times classier.
With this in the background
Set the music vol to about 50%
Classic Rainymood, shouldn't autoplay music
Playing the game makes you appreciate the music more, but if you've never played, try this:
Dim or turn off the lights / close your eyes
Halo 3: ODST
Lose yourself in the dark, neon-dotted streets of New Mombasa
Designed by /u/maroslaw. You can find the source on github here. There are alternative backgrounds and rain-types.
Enjoy, with something like Rainymood on an alternate tab.
Cuddling on the couch with a smallish girl at night during a thunderstorm, so I can cover her whole body and make her feel safe. All quiet and peaceful-like. I'm usually stressed out and this is the most relaxing situation I can think of.
I also have career related fantasies about being a successful scientist who still has time and energy to do crazy stuff on the side all the time. On my way to work today I was thinking about how hilarious it would be if a headline read "Nobel Prize winning chemist spills beer on research notes during rager, scientific progress set back 30 years". Of course in this world I'm good enough to still have my job after that.
Hello all. At this point...is it even worth creating a match thread? Each passing day is more and more frustrating. Once again, here is a brief synopsis on the status of this test match.
Please try this out! I generally don't have too much trouble falling asleep these days, but I used to - and sometimes I get bad migraines which make it near impossible to relax enough to sleep. These help so much - I prefer rainymood but a lot of people like the ones with more sound options. Play it from your phone/laptop when trying to sleep.
This gif really sums up me, I think. Which sucks, considering I no longer live in a place where rainfall is plentiful and clean. It's when I sadly remember that that I put on Rainy Mood in the background and let it play all day ♥
My mother can read with the TV turned up and the dogs barking and id still have to call her name 3 or 4 times to get her attention. I never understood it. I have to have silence. But I love rainy mood when i read
The vast majority of the time my headphones are on there's nothing playing, or I'm using rainymood and/or simplynoise (brown noise + occillation sounds like an ocean).
Noise cancelling, over the ear, headphones are key.
Hi! I finally have an idea and have improved my writing skills enough to make a game that I think I actually want to publish (probably as a single-page web app that's free to use with minimal advertising akin to patatap or rainymood).
And now I have several questions, such as:
P.S. If these questions are too basic (answered elsewhere in layman's terms) feel free to tell me to google harder. The answers I've found so far just have entirely too much legalese for me to wrap my head around the basic ideas (I know I'll have to dig much deeper for exact answers and deal with that legalese at some point though).
If you like the sound of rain as well, here's a combo you might like, full of nostalgia: Skyrim Full Original Soundtrack.
It's nice to have playing in the background while you do other stuff.
(/flutterblush) Thanks Luna. Really, thank you, that means a lot.
(/sp) (/wahaha) And look who's talking Mr. Talkedtomeconsitentlysincetacolefttohelpmecope.
(/rdsmile) I hope you'll be good soon.
And now you've all gone and got me into a rain mood.
Now just open these links in different tabs:
(From some old reddit comment I can't find anymore, probably from askreddit)
Lightning Bug is quite good, although I prefer to listen to the James Dueck Rain Storm mp3 featured on RainyMood.
That's one of the songs linked by the "stay classy gentleman" list if I remember correctly - you're supposed to open it up with this trickling across your senses and this bad boy crackling on your screen in 720p.
Yea thought the same thing... but that's because you didn't mention it was you... and the way it's written it seems that way. :) You look like a cool guy :) also upvoted for loving the rain...
A lot of things actually.
Sometimes I use rainforest sounds, like those from This site.
Mostly I just put on whatever I'm watching and doze off. Scrubs, Scooby Doo, anything that can keep playing while I sleep.
I don't use spotify but my favorite playlist I titled "Rain". Every song is sad or moody and fits well when listened to when it's raining (or use this website)
Some songs include: Rain - Taeyeon, The Truth Untold - BTS, Missing You - BTOB, Through the Night - IU, Lonely - Jonghyun, You Clouds Rain - Heize, Untitled 2014 - G-Dragon, Downpour - IOI and a bunch of OST
It's pretty calming to let my emotions out when I'm feeling rather down
If you're on Chrome:
My preferred coping method:
Hope this helps =\
Good evening gentleman/ladies.
On the regular site they put some new recordings in there where the mic doesn't record the sound range properly. The original 30 minute loop is what my wife an I fall asleep to every night/
Get in sleep wherever you can. Doesn't matter if it's 3 PM or 3 AM. Don't worry about messing up your sleep cycle, it's already boned anyway.
Try to get in at least 90 minutes per nap, but you won't shoot yourself in the foot if it's a shorter power nap.
Avoid caffeine today if you can, otherwise it'll be hard to fall asleep despite how tired you feel. It's pretty frustrating, and the frustration + stress doesn't make things easier. Pound as much caffeine as you want for the final stretch, though!
I used RainyMood to chill me out and block out any distracting noises.
Good call with the fruit and carbs. Keep those levels up!
Take a walk around the block every once in a while. It'll clear your head, which probably feels all dull and staticy right now.
Trance! Yes... often. :]
edit:bricks and mortar
more edit: Pink sunsets do that to me, and deserts, too...
even more edit: if you haven't seen the RainyMood before give it a go!
I hope the tea helps. Also, I suggest Rainy Mood and a relaxing instrumental piece from youtube. You can just add the last half of the youtube video URL to the end of the rainymood link, and they'll play in the same tab. It's wonderful for helping with bad moods.
I usually find a fan (like plug in your wall outlet standard run of the mill fan) and turn it on facing my body. Then since it's cold, I snuggle under the blankets and fall asleep quicker. I like the cold. It helps me sleep.
edit: I just remember this website, it's a constant loop of the sound of rain. super relaxing c:
One of the youtube comments said to play this and this in other tabs while watching. It was surreal.
I have no direct experience, but I can tell you that there is no, nadda, zero, zip clinical evidence showing that any herbal remedy or other "alternative medicine" would have any effect on tinnitus. My mother practices acupuncture and hasn't ever suggested it as a treatment for my tinnitus--based on the academic literature, acupuncture might have a mild effect on certain types of pain, but outside of that it's relatively pointless (pun only partially intended). Treatment options are unfortunately fairly limited, but consult with your local ENT doc to get a better idea of what options might be available for your tinnitus (causes of tinnitus vary widely, and as a result so do available treatment options). Outside of what your doctor can recommend, your main options for "treatment" are your pick of white/pink noise or just some kind of background sounds.
And while the other 2 are playing...
Maxence Cyrin's piano cover of <em>Where is my mind</em> by the Pixies.
Add a bit of Rainy Mood and you've got yourself a killer combo.
Hey buddy, try a wake up alarm that plays nice sounds or isn't a default alarm or notification. I had a default Nexus 6 sound as my alarm for the longest time and I was in the same boat; waking up anxious and hating life being jarred out of bed abruptly. Then my wife started using the same alarm sound and now everytime I hear it I flip out.
Try alarms that play nice things like the sound of a rainstorm when you try to wake up.
Oh yeah, this happens to me a lot. My anxiety likes to manifest itself as cardiac-related symptoms (chest tightness, heart palpitations, tingly feelings in my arms, etc), so I'll feel those and start thinking that I'm about to have a heart attack, which will make me panic more, which makes the symptoms worse, and so on.... -sigh-
It's hard to break the cycle. Sometimes I just end up crying, which will usually release some of the tension and worry I'm holding. I've heard mindfulness techniques are helpful, but I haven't practiced them much. I really need to start trying it. Sometimes herbal tea can help also. Chamomile tea usually helps me feel calm. Try to avoid caffeine as well, that can make anxiety worse.
One other thing I've found helpful lately is listening to this song, it's specially designed to be calming and to slow your heartbeat. I like to just close my eyes and lie down and just listen. Pairing the song with other white noise like Rainymood is also very effective.
This is my go-to combo when I need to push out something:
Punctuate with dance breaks/jumping jacks when you feel like you're gonna explode and have a friend bring you junk food or help you edit. You can do it!
Bob Acri's Sleep Away
Fragrance of Dark Coffee
Seems like Jazz is the best that go with rainymood.
Go watch kitten videos. Nothing better than kitten videos to stop anxiety (or at least, I find it good for stopping panic attacks). Also, rain sounds.
Oh, da hatte ich dich auch falsch verstanden. Aber gut, kommt Zeit, kommt Fahrrad. :)

The sweet, sweet sound of a thunderstorm, makes me sleep like a baby. Perhaps because I grew up on the savanna's of southern Africa, where we had daily thunderstorms in the afternoon, which was a good time to catch a nap.
Yeah, because for those who benefit the most from white noise, sometimes music itself is either distracting or not enough to reduce distractions.
This is also a good tool: http://www.rainymood.com/
Ocean noise works too. But I can't pretend I'm on the beach, and sometimes I need a change from the rain noise. Being in front of a computer screen with the noises listed above, I might actually believe I'm at warp speed. Perhaps I'm trapped at warp speed and feverishly programming the solution from scratch that will bring us back out and save everyone.
Oh, you know.
I meant the direct links, not the link to the site you said had all of them I assumed you already had them, but I guess not. Here:
When I looked at the title of your post, it was funny because I was like:
"Oh my goodness I actually have a TOMT right in my bookmark bar
I'm watching this with Rainy Mood, and right as the damn bear comes romping out of the woods, thunder rumbles through my bass-heavy headphones. Needless to say, perfect soundtrack.
Right there with you thanks to PMDD. I'm playing RainyMood (http://www.rainymood.com/ and SilentWatcher (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsPBplWLImI) videos at the same time. They always help me. [edited to make URLs visible]
If you're a Zelda fan, something I'm pretty sure a Redditor told me many moons (and an account or two) ago:
Infinite loop of Cam Wilson Chello Ensemble Zelda Song of Storms
Balance volumes to suit.
I'd like to add listening to things like Rainy Mood or Noisli really help soothe me. Now you can actually play Rainy Mood over the top of a YouTube video, so I like playing that over some of my favorite chillstep. ChilloutDeer on YouTube has some really amazing mixes, as does MrSuicideSheep. Will post some of my favorites if anyone is interested!
Edited to fix channel names.
i like to listen to some soft classical music. XX-Intro sometimes is nice to listen to when going to sleep Depends on my mood, really. Some people like to use Rainy Mood but I don't use it, i don't think it's as good as actual rain.
yup, there's something oddly satisfying and cozy about sitting on your couch, a warm cup of coffee, watching a quiet tv show, while listening to the rain pattering against the windows.
Every now and again I'll sit at working listening to this just for that cozy warm feeling at work.
This with this and this playing in the background.
Edit: I wish I were lying next to her right now.
Hold up, I remembered that I have updated links bookmarked.
Yes, this is how it was, originally.
