Undoubtedly, the relaxing sound of crashing waves makes for one of the best sounds on Earth. The sound of the ocean waves is a truly magical one, with the frequency and rhythm of the water creating a soothing melody that can instantly put you at ease.
The sounds of crashing waves can make many people feel like they're someplace else - like on vacation in Hawaii or another tropical location. Growing up in New Jersey, we Jersey folks refer to the beach as the "Shore." During the summer months, I was fortunate to drive to the shore on the weekends, sink my feet into the hot sand, and trudge my way to the entrance of the ocean and consume its healing properties and sounds.
Listening to crashing waves can help calm your mind by blocking out all other environmental noise. This is especially beneficial if you live on or near a busy street, or if there are other distractions around your home such as dogs barking or children playing and screaming.
If you don't live near the shore/beach and you want to experience the calming sounds of ocean waves in your home or office, purchase an audio recording of crashing waves. Then, put on some headphones, close your eyes, and listen - it's that easy! Or, find videos online that feature ocean wave sound.
Here is a short sound video I created and use whenever I want to relax to the sounds of waves crashing.
