Atlantic Waves

Post ID: 1286 | January 11th, 2015 | 0 Comments

In North Carolina big Atlantic waves crash against a steep sandy beach as the tide goes out. An ocean waves soundscape with some birds, but mostly just the sound of big waves.

These are real waves, big Atlantic Ocean waves relentlessly breaking on a sandy shore. Majestic and relaxing.

The sound of water has positive effects on our mental health. Water sounds have long been used to create a soothing atmosphere.

Some scientists consider the sound of water the same as “white noise,” in which we can hear any number of things and are more easily able to let go of our thoughts.

Our own brain-waves tend to mirror the rhythms present in our immediate environment, what is called the frequency following response. There are few sounds more relaxing than the sound of ocean waves. Listening to the rhythm of ocean waves can help you enjoy a more peaceful state of mind.

Most of us cannot spend our days by the ocean. Playing Atlantic Waves can give you a welcome boost or help you sleep better.

A very clean nature sound recording, suitable for looping. There are no unnatural sounds to distract you from your listening experience.
