De-stress for Your Exams: Calm Sounds

My daughter gets really stressed sometimes. So I made her this, to help her relax and stay calm. 'Counting Sheep' runs up to a hundred. If you think stressful thoughts, re-start the track. See how long it takes you to get up to 100. It's excellent for wiping your mind clean, running up through the sequence.

I recorded the birds in my garden. This is one to play on a loop. If you don't like birds, you can listen to the extract from Walt Whitman's fabulous Song of Myself, which I fell in love with recently.

The classical tracks are just beautiful. Play them on a loop at low volume and feel yourself unwind.
