To kick off this contest, here is a song that helps me relax!

“One Time” by Enya

What songs do the calming trick for you?

What I do is listen to the song, “Flower Duet” from the opera, “Lakme” by Leo Delibes.  WOW, it is so soothing.  Have a listen.  My favorite place to hear it is on YouTube.  As the music plays, a man is flying 3 kites at once, and they fly together so gracefully.  It’s like ballet for kites!  Sends a wonderful peace over me.

Shoot!  I forgot to give the link to that rendition of “Flower Duet” from the opera, “Lakme” by Leo Delibes.  Here it is:

I actually have an app on my itouch that plays sounds and music that my son absolutely loves to use now.  He has it setup to help him wind down before bed time.  Ironically the song that he plays that has no words is called Insomnia.  I plays different pitches throughout the song.  I love that it helps him.

I find this song by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson so soothing and relaxing. I love the holiday time and Winter Song just has an ethereal quality that can’t help but relax. I encourage everyone to add this to their playlist. Enjoy!

Three Little Birds by Bob Marley is the best song for us!

My son instead of listening to music, listens to a podcast called “Storynory”.  It is of a person reading different storys.  It helps calm him down and relax him.  He listens to it every night on his iPod.

“China Roses” by Enya

By Missed That on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at 5:25 am.

As an adult who only realized that I have ADHD when my son was diagnosed and then my daughter, I always have turned to Otis Reddy’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” for calm amid the chaos around and IN me, especially if I wear headphones and close my eyes,

Any instrumental songs especially those including water-like waves crashing or a bubbling brook. That will calm me right down, and like the previous comment if I close my eyes and I also slow my breathing, it really helps. I try to use my vivid imagination to my advantage by picturing me laying peacefully by the water, relaxing in the warm sun. My daughter, age 8, will also listen to nature sounds to help her relax and sometimes I will try to quietly read her through a guided relaxation story.
