When it's time to unwind, let go, drift off or just to find your happy place, there is that one sound to send you on your way.

What is it?

You may turn the radio on or the TV. Which is very popular for many in this survey I found on Female First.

The study found the eight most comforting sounds in the world. And remember, "comforting" doesn't always mean "calming", a lot of them are sounds that could make you nostalgic or remind you of feeling happy at home.

  • Birds tweeting
  • The radio
  • The TV
  • Rain on the window
  • Silence
  • The shower running
  • Trains
  • Someone humming

I can tell you that my wife doesn't buy into any of this.  She slams her earplugs in and calls it a night!
