I’ve personally never really thought of making a masterpost (mostly since there’s already soo many good ones out there) but i haven’t really found many good calm/relaxing masterposts - with a sole purpose of reducing stress and just taking care of yourself. So I’ve decided to make this one in hopes of at least reducing a lil stress, and letting yourself forget about whatever is bothering you at the moment. Oh, and if anything should be added, or if you simply need someone to talk to, please don’t hesitate to message me. ^^
- Ambient mixer: this site let’s you listen to both ambiance and music, and allows you to make your own mixes if you’d like.
- Naturesoundsfor.me: i thought this one was a bit interesting, again its customizable, and you can listen to what others have created. You can mix different nature sounds together and adjust each sound’s volume.
- Noisli: while searching for really good ambient sites, i have to say i *really* love this one. It has a very simple design to it - click which sounds you want to hear and adjust how loud/quiet you’d like them to be. Along with that you can click the background for a random colour generator which slowly transitions into other colours.
- Studio Ghibli instrumental mixes: here’s a bunch of ghibli mixes,
Piano mix / Instrumental / Some more instrumental / Jazz (first album) / Jazz (second album) / Music box playlist / Another music box playlist /
- Other instrumental mixes (from movies):
Wolf Children mix / Animal crossing: original game - wild world/city folk - new leaf /
- A few more calming mixes (misc.):
Has an animal crossing feel to it / Perfect for falling asleep to / Another relaxing mix / A more jazzy mix / And one more
As always, ghibli movies always tend to give a happy vibe (there’s some exceptions though, *cough* grave of the fireflies *cough*), here’s an entire masterpost for every film/short film produced / you can also search for them here and here.
Other really good animated movies:
Wolf Children (this movie is absolutely adorable and the soundtrack is so good - casual warning that it does get a bit sad at some moments)
5 cm Per Second (the animation is gorgeous, if you’re up for a romance movie def give this one a watch)
Hotarubi no Mori e (oh no this movie, again it gets a bit sad, but is very cute)
Children who chase lost voices (i still haven’t gotten the chance to watch this movie! however from what i’ve seen it looks good)
Animal Crossing Movie (even if you haven’t played the game before just watch this i promise its so cute)
Summer Wars (i love a really good slice of life/cute family dynamic, literally every char in this movie was adorable)
Again, here’s an entire masterpost (includes both older and newer movies) / you can search for movies here.
I’ve also found a couple channels that simply post videos of kitties/cute lil nature videos - here, here, and here.
