Light Rain & Birds Singing For Better Sleep, Relaxation, & Meditation by NatureArtRx FilmsLight Rain & Birds Singing For Better Sleep, Relaxation, & Meditation by NatureArtRx Films Light Rain & Birds Singing is a 4K UHD movie of light rain falling on a river scene with birds chirping and singing. 

You can enjoy this 1 hour of the sound of rain falling to help you go to sleep or relax at any time of the day or night.

After a few minutes, you can literally feel the stress leaving your body.  

The hypnotic sounds of rain queues to your mind to relax and be peaceful.

Science has confirmed in many credible studies that listening to nature helps us sleep better. We already know the soothing power of nature’s sounds calms our minds and slows our hearts down.

Researchers have discovered that nature sounds change the connections in our brains, taking down the body’s fight-or-flight response. The nervous system prepares to fight or flee a threatening situation by releasing the hormones cortisol, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. These stress hormones make it impossible to get a good night’s sleep.

Researchers at Brighton and Sussex Medical School in England have determined that nature’s sounds, in contrast to artificial noise, build up the “rest-digest” response instead.  This opposite response to “fight-or-flight” helps the body relax and fall to sleep. 

This research study, published in Scientific Reports, is noteworthy for the use of heart-rate monitors, functional magnetic resonance imaging scans (fMRI) and social experiments to determine why the body reacts so positively to natural environments.

I suggest practicing slow and deep breathing to help relieve stress and emotional anxiety. Deep breathing is also known to relieve pain, improve your mood, improve focus, increase energy, and even improve your heart function.

Start with one minute deep breathing exercises and build up over time.  I honestly believe if you do this simple task, you will start receiving the positive benefits immediately. 

You can cast the video to your television in full 4K or watch on your larger desktop computer screen to get a deeper and more immersive experience connecting sight and sound together. 

By combining the therapeutic sounds of the rain falling with the ultra high definition video of the rain falling on the river, we are sending audio and visual queues to your mind and body to help you relax.


Did you know that deep breathing offers numerous health benefits, from stress reduction to a slower heartbeat and reduced blood pressure.  Additionally, deep breathing is particularly helpful for managing stress. Stressful thoughts may cause the "fight or flight" response, also known as the stress response, as a reaction to a perceived danger. With the stress response, the body's sympathetic nervous system alerts nerve pathways to trigger the adrenal glands, which then release adrenaline into the bloodstream. This adrenaline burst increases your blood pressure and pulse rate and may cause you to breathe short, shallow breaths from your chest.  

By breathing deeply from your diaphragm, you ignite the body's parasympathetic nervous system. This system reverses the stress response by slowing the heart rate, lowering blood pressure and calming the mind. With deep breaths, you can activate the body's relaxation response, a state of profound calm.

Many people because of busy schedules or lack of access to nature simply don't have the ability to experience and benefit from the positive and healing powers of nature. 

I have created a completely free library of therapeutic nature and wildlife videos on YouTube, so you can get your daily dose of nature and feed your mind and body with goodness.  My hope is that you will sleep better, feel more relaxed, and have a joyful day. 

Use the videos and sounds to help you fall asleep fast, relax at any time during the day or night, and use for meditation or while you are exercising too.

Scientists and medical researchers have confirmed the healing power of nature in over fifty years of clinical and medical-based research.  We don't need doctors and researchers to tell us what we already know.  Nature has an amazing positive range of impacts on our mind and bodies and it is smart to connect with nature in any way that you can every day. 

Connecting with and being in nature has been proven to be beneficial for both human cognitive functioning and emotional wellbeing at all stages of life (Zaradic & Pergams, 2007) and we know that exposure to nature in any form increases intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual and physical development. (Kellert, 2005).
