Enjoy an Attention Restoration Meditation at least every 90 minutes at work. Give your mind a self-compassion break so that you can resume work with renewed focus. Put aside the time needed to be fully with this meditation and use earphones so that you can block out noise in your environment. After enjoying the meditation, give yourself a few moments to sit and simply “be.” Nature sounds courtesy of listeningearth.com. Photo by Bryan Rodriguez on Unsplash.

Awakening
Sometimes the simplest things can bring us back to ourselves. I listen to rain forest sounds while study 😊✌🏾

I really liked this meditation this morning. I could feel myself engulfed with nature and in peace and enjoying the sounds. All that was missing was a babbling brook or a streaming river.; however, it was a beautiful meditation. Thank you, Aura! Good Morning , Everyone!

Sunny place
It brought me to a place that my husband and I ride to every now and then. I pictured the sun shining on us and just being in nature. It was a great way to slow my thoughts before my day begins.

My expectations got the better of me
I think I was slightly disillusioned because I believed it was going to be a guided meditation and it was just nature sounds. Nothing wrong with that, they were beautiful, but I️ kept waiting for the words and they never came.

Stop and Listen
There is almost nothing more relaxing than getting lost in the sounds of Mother Nature. I could spend hours just sitting in the forest, by the water, or on a beach and just listen to everything that is going on around me. Sometimes the things that bring us peace only require us to sit and listen.

Ahhhh nature
So soothing. So relaxing. I was able to feel connected with nature like I was there walking in that forest and the sounds surrounded me. Good morning everyone!

I also feel most at peace in nature. You breath easier and realize that you are a small part of the large world.

Natures Sounds
These sounds almost take my breath away. I feel so relaxed and centered and aware that these sounds may be found right outside my door. Thank you. 🙏

I learned to imagine myself part of the natural world around me; the woods, the birds, the dappled sunlight, the plants and flowers.

Huh
Thought it was going to be a guided meditation. However once I got over that confusion the nature sounds were nice.

Too raatles
Too restless to provide a restful sleep. Too many noises, too active.

Nature sounds
lovely sounds but they didn’t help my mind to switch off - I still need guided meditation to aid this.

Nature
I learned that or should state its reinforced, that sitting and just listening to nature is healing in its own way. Just was and practiced various breathing techniques learned through Aura and others while listening...it was a great way to end a full day of giving thanks...

Eh
I would have liked this meditation to be guided. My mind wandered after the first minute and I completely forgot I was even trying to meditate.

Not for me
I much prefer guided meditation sessions to these nature sound files. I'm here for assistance with real-world issues of stress, anxiety, and depression. I can choose to listen to sound files from my own library or one of multiple nature sound apps if I so chose.

Simple Things Could Be Something Else
We simply take for granted the things that would always be there. Just like this, by simply listening to nature sounds could literally relieve stress and anxiety. We go back to our basics. We take a moment to realize how these creations are just wonderful. This helped me in ways that, I can’t even understand.

Momentary detachment
This meditation was perfect for me to explore the idea of taking a moment to break from the day and get out of my own head.

it’s winter here so it was really nice to hear all the birds in this meditation. 🕊

Bird song
It really is amazing how the layered songs of birds resounding in a forest soothes my soul. We are losing both at such a rate in our lifetime- birds and forest. Precious resources to protect for their sake and ours!

Birds in the Forrest
This was so restful with the birds twittering & singing. Sorry that I didn’t do 7 min.

Not for me
I kept waiting for some type of guidance. Couldn't find the track peaceful, I kept noticing how it was just on a loop.

Forest
Taking a moment out of the day to listen to this was so relaxing. My husband and I went to the Redwood Forest in California in 2014 and this took me right back there with a lot of very happy memories. Very appreciative of this meditation.

I could feel the spaciousness of this place. It felt like a big space where I could let my soul run free for a while. Nice. Thanks.

Life is beautiful and we tend to get lost and ignore it. Take time to reflect on it and appreciate it.

The soothing sounds of nature calmed me and gave a nice backdrop for tuning into my breath and feeling peaceful again.

Close your eyes and here the sounds of nature. It’s amazing how relaxed you will be.

I learned that taking even a moment to stop, clear your mind and focus on a peaceful noise can lift a weight off of you..

Anxiety
We are only anxious of the unknown. We must learn to except the what is and live in the present.

Stress
I need to stop letting life get me so down. It’s things I cannot change and things that I will bump into every day of a normal life, I torture myself with bad thoughts, I just need to let go

Forest sounds
I don’t ordinarily like those sounds but the birds were not bad. I focused on breathing and imagining a lush forest full of birds.

Day 2
This is something that I will need to practice. It was hard for me to allow my mind to just settle without the guided meditation prompts.

Guided Meditation is Better for Me
It is hard for me to be zoned in and present in a non-guided meditation. I enjoyed the sounds but didn’t find them energizing or focus inducing.

I found myself wondering where the birds were. I reminded myself to take my medicine this morning. I think with practice, I can be good at this.

My mind is a wanderer
Hard to focus when so many stressors are present in your life... Every time I would deviate, I would come back to thinking how beautiful are these sounds. How each bird sound had a personality and I envisioned so much green around me... I need to relax. I need to breathe

Presence
It helps and takes practice to be present even after all the sessions I have had.

Morning in the Forest
Another fantastic meditation! I sat, completely relaxed, smiling as I slowly breathed in and out, enjoying the sounds of nature without being directed to do so. I was calm and present. As a high school teacher, my goal has always been to prepare my students for the world beyond the English classes. This meditation does the same - it allows us to be in the moment, any time and any where without someone prompting you. Excellent!

Took my mind off things
By listening to nature I stopped thinking negatively and put my focus on the sound. My mind stopped racing

Day 1
I learned that the sound can immediately help and I need to stay open to the fact that it does... even with my extreme stress it instantly calmed me and made me feel centered.

Listening to nature sounds was calming but it didnt really make me feel any better.

Okay
The nature sounds wonderful, but after listening to the bird noise for a while... it gets kind of annoying.

Nature sounds
This reminds me of peaceful times when on vacation. When I let my busy life stay where it is and take the time to seperate myself from the bustle temporarily. That necessary disconnect in the interest of sanity

Nature
I loved imagining that I was laying in the long grass at the edge of a forest, feeling the breeze, the sun, taking in all the smells. This is so simple and yet so relating I definitely plan to do it again outside this summer 🌸

Eh
The sounds of nature didn’t help me relax at all. I kept expecting to hear a voice and it never happened. Wasn’t able to help me fall asleep.

Nice break
I was feeling stressed at work so I shit the door to my office and I focused on listening to this and it made me feel more at ease. I enjoyed it.

Breathing
I tried to combine some morning breathing with listening to the sounds of nature and found this much easier to concentrate on for the full session.

Smiling
It was different to not have a guided meditation but being only short, the nature sounds just took me back to pleasant memories of being within nature and brought a smile to my face; not having too much time for my mind to go off on tangents. Will be useful to come back to and learn to spend longer in meditation that isn’t a guided session.

Favorite Morning Meditation
Of all the great guided meditations that I’ve listen to and continue to relisten to this may be my favorite exclamation it is excellent in the morning and although I often can hear the birds in the wildlife outside my window the assurance of these natural sounds on this meditation really helps me to awaken to my inner self my aspirations, My dreams and even just my daily goals. I highly recommend this soundscape meditation. Peace…
