Falling asleep to water by Aaron Tanner

As with many with Aspergers, sensory overload comes easy for me. When I am overwhelmed and anxious, I have a hard time falling asleep.

I recently discovered something that not only helps me calm down while I am unwinding from the day, but it also helps me fall asleep at night.

Before I go to bed, I hook my phone to a charger, put on my wireless noise-canceling headphones, and listen to the sound of heavy rain and flowing water. Often I can fall asleep and wake up refreshed in the morning. Listening to the sound of water is also great for trying to relax before starting on a writing project.

Below are some of my favorite YouTube videos I listen to before falling asleep. If you know about apps that play relaxing sounds, such as flowing water or rain, comment in the section below.
