What I Learned From Tracking My Health

What I Learned From Tracking My Health

Months ago, I created my very own book that combined a health tracker and daily planner all in one. I did this because I wanted to be able to do these two things daily without having to get two different books.

I am coming up on a year of using these and it has been pretty eye opening for me. In this post, I will be discussing what I have learned about myself in the past five months.

What health stuff I track and why

Ever since about two weeks after I had COVID-19, I have experienced many different symptoms that can be attributed to post-viral syndrome (I have a whole post about that). I am also really sensitive to hormonal fluctuations which has caused uncomfortable symptoms. These two things combined have greatly disrupted my life.

After a couple months of the post-COVID symptoms, I decided that I was going to start tracking how I felt each day. I began tracking my mental/physical status, the food/supplements I consumed and what day I was on in my menstrual cycle. I have kept up with doing this since then.

The reasoning behind tracking everything has been to see if there are any correlations and/or causations. Finding any may help me figure out how to fix things or be able to anticipate things happening so I am prepared.

What I have learned from tracking my health

As I stated above, tracking has been eye opening. Looking over these five months and analyzing everything has made me realize that I am not out of the woods yet with the post-COVID and menstrual cycle issues.

Here are the things that I have learned:

Post-COVID/general-

  • May-June were horrible overall. I had lots of bouts of my post-COVID crud (GI, neurological, respiratory and heart issues). I guess I was too proud to admit that the symptoms didn’t totally go away.
  • I am groggy on days without vitamin B12.
  • Allergy-type symptoms (itchy nose, swollen throat, itchy skin) are a regular thing for me. I believe this is another post-viral annoyance combined with a mast cell issue.
  • I will randomly have actual cold-like symptoms about three days out of the month. I have gone to get drive-through PCR swab tests but they are always negative. This must be a post-viral thing, too.
  • I was taking turmeric and Aspirin because I read that they can have health benefits that are needed during the pandemic. Things were going good with them for a while but within the past few months they started to mess with my GI system. I am no longer able to consume them.
  • My mental state consists of being happy and motivated most of the time.
  • I have developed heat stroke symptoms whenever I try to mow the lawn for some reason.

Menstrual cycle-

Before I start with the list, I wanted to give an explanation of the “GI and mental distress times” that you will see on it. This is when I get extremely anxious, upset, worried and experience horrible stomach issues (pain, bloating, nausea and sometimes loose stool) all at the same time.

Here are some general things about my menstrual cycle symptoms:

  • Since taking the full dosage of Claritin everyday starting in early July, my GI and mental distress times have reduced greatly. They don’t last for more than 1.5 hours and I am able to just breath through them most of the time.
  • Any hormonal nausea I do get that is too intense for me is taken away by red raspberry leaf tea and half of a Meclizine tablet.
  • The length of my cycles switched from 27 days to 31 days and then back to 27 again. I am not sure why this happened. PCOS maybe?

My last two cycles yielded pretty much the same symptoms on all 27 days of them. Here is a play-by-play of what I experienced during them-

  • Days 1-4: Menstrual cramps (days 1-2), fatigue, mild headache, low appetite, post nasal drip, happy and focused.
  • Days 5-8: Itchy eyes, post-nasal drip, happy, motivated, focused and bloody gums.
  • Days 9-11: No physical symptoms, happy and motivated.
  • Days 12-15: Leg aches, bloating, appetite increase, lightheadedness upon standing, ovary aches (day 14), GI/mental distress time (day 15), happy most of the time and bouts of sadness.
  • Days 16-19: Appetite increase, good energy for workouts, irritable at times, happy at times and easily startled.
  • Days 20-23: Lightheadedness at times, irritable at times, happy most of the time, some bloating and not enough energy to workout on day 22.
  • Day 24-27: Tender breasts, nesting, neck aches, nausea (day 26), smell of blood in my genital area, insomnia, some bloating, rumination, irritability and night sweats.

The main takeaway

What I take from all of this information is that I have some health issues that I probably won’t be cured of. All I can do is keep managing my symptoms so that my life is not disrupted further. Things have been going pretty good lately and I want that to continue on.

Do any of you track your daily health symptoms?

15 Amazing Ambience Videos For Fall 2021

15 Amazing Ambience Videos For Fall 2021

Okay so I am early for a fall edition- shoot me! I was just so eager to get this out so that you could get a head start on enjoying some great ambience!

Here are the 15 ones I picked for this fall!

Why ambience videos?

Because they are awesome, that is why!

They bring a different feel to wherever you are playing them. A backdrop of sorts. They can also be used for certain activities. These include relaxing, sleeping (is that considered an activity?), studying, meditating, writing, reading, cleaning, drawing/painting, crafting and probably more.

Some of the ambience videos have either still images or animated images. With the images comes related sounds, music or a combination of those two.

I use ambience videos for reading, writing and relaxing. They really do put me in a good place mentally-even if just for a couple hours. My absolute favorite sounds are restaurant ones (chatter, dishes clinking, drinks pouring etc.).

The 15 amazing ambience videos for fall 2021

  1. I would never go to a real one…

Never in my life have I wanted to go to a circus but this video was just too great to not put on the list. The chatter, sounds of fireworks and crickets are perfectly blended. I even heard what seemed like a group of kids singing a song together and then laughing-typical of what you would hear at a public event. The imagery is also fabulous (I love that Ferris wheel).

2. Apocalypse ambience? Um, what?!

So I know this won’t be everyone’s favorite but if you like horror stuff like me- you may really like it. The crawling rat, the beat up environment, occasional foot steps, airplane announcements (who could even be making them?!), gunshots (who is being shot?!) etc. all make for a terrifying hour. Upon watching it, I kept expecting a zombie or something to pop out. My mind was left to it’s own defenses.

I just love this one and I am actually playing it as I make this post!

3. Yes, I do feel cozy

This video truly is cozy. The sound of the fireplace combined with the cooking sounds give off a warm feeling. It could definitely cause some happy memories of better days to come back (it did for me!). In my opinion, this is great to have on your TV or computer while you read a great book.

4. A beautiful Thanksgiving

Can you say gorgeous? What a lovely scene this is. I can imagine my husband and I just sitting at this table set for two. I also have always loved the sound of glugging drinks and this video has it.

This video is great to put on while reading, eating a meal and/or decorating for the holidays.

5. How unique!

The idea of going on a trip and staying in a cute caravan sounds fun to me. The idea of going into a caravan to see a fortune teller sounds fun too-regardless of how wrong the predictions would be.

This ambience video is cool looking and has that bubbling sound that I (and many others!) love. This is perfect for a Halloween backdrop.

6. I want to eat here

Some places to eat at that aren’t fancy have the best food. At least that has been my experience. This video with it’s old and well-worn pub looks like it would be one of those places.

I love restaurant ambience as I have said before. This one is one of my favorites as the sounds are perfectly blended and the image looks so cozy.

7. Ultra relaxing

This isn’t fall themed but I wanted to include it anyways. It is so beautiful and relaxing. The mermaids singing are a really nice touch.

This one is a great option to have playing in your headphones/ear buds.

8. The porch of dreams

This is one amazing porch and I wish it was mine! The artist did an amazing job on it.

The popping, cracking, crinkling and writing sounds make for a relaxing listen. Try putting this one on while reading a book. You are sure to feel cozy and be able to get into the story more.

9. Oh how I wish I was a paid writer

The fall colors in this are absolutely beautiful. If I was a paid writer (I so wish I was!)- a spot like this would be where I would want to do my writing.

The nature sounds and chimes are very calming- making this great for relaxing, studying, writing and reading!

10. Lovely rain

I love a rainy fall evening. Something about it is so mentally healing for me. The fact that this video combines that along with jazz music and customer sounds-makes it one I have gone back to many times.

This is a very popular ambience video by a popular channel (one of my favorites!) and I really think that most people will like it. Try putting it on your TV, dim the lights in the room (if they can be dimmed) and read a great book/write a story!

11. “Wow,” is all I can say

I only recently found out about this YouTube channel and I am blown away by the quality of ambience videos it has.

This medieval apothecary video is one of the first ones I saw from the channel and I thought it was worth sharing. The imagery and medicine-making sounds are great. Not all apothecary shops in ancient times were evil or scary but this video could still serve as a great Halloween backdrop.

12. I wish I lived here

I just saw this one a couple of hours before I began to type this post and I had to include it! This video is like the fall study one (#9) but with some obvious different touches.

I personally love hard hitting rain sounds and this video definitely has that. Also, the addition of piano music is just icing on the cake. This is a great video for reading and writing to.

13. I need to be at this club

Another masterpiece by the TERAVIBE YouTube channel. The beginning intro, where it goes around the whole scene and shows you everything- is an awesome touch.

This cozy club is definitely something you would see in the 1950s (I looked up pictures!). It would be for rich people of course which makes it all the more fun as an ambient backdrop. Also, the jazz music picked for it is excellent.

I will admit that it does have a bit of a lonely, slightly sad feel to it. However, it is still very calming. This is a great option to put on when you want to just sit with tea/coffee, read a book, write and study.

14. Ahhh, the train of my dreams

I would love to be on a luxury train like this! They probably don’t exist though.

The beautiful changing scenes combined with the sounds (jazz music, clinking glasses and going over train tracks) make for a great video to put on your TV screen. You can sit in front of it and feel like you are actually riding in the train!

15. I guess I like sad things?

This is dark, sad and not really autumn themed but I love it anyways. I am pretty sure if you are into ambience videos at all- you will find it amazing too.

Can you imagine being on the Titanic while it sank? It must have been terrifying. I guess this video might give you a visual taste of what things might have looked like in the rooms as the ship was sinking.

I put this on my TV while doing some writing. It is not very calming so it is better to use when you are doing something that uses brain power.

That’s all folks!

Those were my 15 ambience video picks for fall 2021. I love each of them and I am sure you will like at least one! Stay tuned for my 15 picks for Winter 2021.

Thanks for reading!

The Simple Breathing Exercise That Helped Me

The Simple Breathing Exercise That Helped Me

We all have been through a lot since the pandemic began. Having to give up certain things and basically try to adapt to a different way of life- is tough.

Things have been rough for me since getting COVID-19 in March 2020. It left me with some physical issues that have been very uncomfortable and scary at times.

One of the scary things for me has been some breathing problems I have had to deal with. Fortunately, I have learned a great breathing exercise that has helped me in times of need.

Intro to breathing issues

Having difficulty breathing is a terrible feeling. Most people are used to not even thinking about their breathing-its just something automatic. It may come as a surprise to know just how complex of a process the act of breathing actually is.

When you are having breathing difficulties, you may feel like you are unable to take a deep breath or you can take a deep breath but it doesn’t feel like your lungs actually got any of the air you breathed in. You may also have a tight feeling in your chest and/or chest pain when you try to breathe.

It is never a good feeling no matter what.

There are various reasons as to why someone may have issues breathing and in most cases- should be checked out by a medical professional.

Breathing issues: physical

When it comes to breathing issues, there are quite a few physical ailments that can cause them. The degree of physical breathing difficulties that one can have ranges from mild to life threatening in these cases.

What people may not know is that it is not just lung conditions that can cause difficulty with breathing- it can also be caused by heart issues. The following includes some of the conditions that cause breathing difficulties:

  • Infections-Pneumonia, whooping cough, bronchitis etc.
  • COPD
  • Asthma
  • Hypertension
  • Pulmonary embolisms
  • Cancer
  • Anemia
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • Allergies

An extra word on COVID-19-

When it comes to COVID-19, there seems to be a high risk for individuals who test positive to end up with pneumonia. The Delta variant seems to cause this to happen even more than the other variants have.

If one is having a hard time breathing when dealing with COVID, it is important to also check your oxygen levels. This is because they may be low which indicates a trip to the hospital is in order. It is actually a good thing to do this no matter if you are short of breath or not because your oxygen levels could be low without difficulty breathing being present.

If you test positive for COVID-19, it is important that you let loved ones know so that they can check in on you while you are at home recovering. This is so that they can possibly bring you something you may need (if they live in the same town) or call an ambulance if necessary.

Even after one “recovers” from COVID-19, they may still struggle with shortness of breath or their shortness of breath may start after “recovering.” Oxygen supplementation may then be required afterwards and/or a prescription for an inhaler may be necessary.

Please consider buying an oximeter to have around. It is extremely important when you are ill with COVID-19.

Breathing issues: mental

Difficulty breathing can be caused by mental health reasons, too. This is due to our minds being able to create physical problems.

It can all start with someone feeling a sense of worry, anxiety, panic or fear. Then, these mental symptoms will trigger the fight or flight response which is physiological in nature. When this response happens, adrenaline (a hormone) gets released.

The release of adrenaline is what causes the breathlessness some people may experience when they are dealing with the aforementioned feelings.

The thing that is different about your mental state causing shortness of breath is that it can get better in a shorter amount of time. You will have to calm yourself down somehow (might be hard to do) but you probably aren’t going to end up in the ICU for this type of breathing problem.

Because your mental state can create shortness of breath, it can also make it worse. For example, you could already have shortness of breath due to a physical reason and the fear you feel from not being able to breath very well makes it worse.

My breathing issues

Whilst having COVID- I did not have any shortness of breath. It oddly came about two weeks after “recovering” along with all my other post-COVID symptoms.

One day I felt like I had this tight band around my chest. This made me unable to take a deep breath in. It was scary as I had no idea what was happening to me.

There were other times that I would have this feeling where I could take a deep breath but my lungs (or brain) weren’t able to register it or something like that. It was a really strange sensation.

These two breathing issues were very frequent for a quite a few months. I kept trying to get an appointment with my doctor as I thought I was having serious lung issues but he told me it was probably just anxiety. Because of this, I decided to just work through it at home.

I was aware of the breathing issues a lot of the time and it was really annoying. I tried putting Vick’s on my chest, neck and nose with the idea that it might help me breath better. I also tried breathing in steaming hot water mixed with peppermint essential oil.

It wasn’t until I came across a breathing exercise that I would find any kind of relief.

The breathing exercise that helped me

On my desperate search to find something that would help me, I found a list of breathing methods and exercises. The very first one on the list was the one that turned out to be an amazing tool for me to use when my breathing gets funky.

It is called, pursed lip breathing.

The pursed lip breathing exercise is really simple and can be done anywhere, anytime. It is just inhaling through your nose for a couple seconds and then breathing out with your lips pursed (like you are whistling) for a few seconds. You will most likely need to repeat this a few a times.

The reason why this is a recommended exercise for people with shortness breath is because it helps to slow down your breathing so you can get a deep breath in. Overtime, it can even strengthen your lungs if practiced regularly.

Pursed lip breathing is also very calming for some people. It can be used for when your shortness of breath is caused by mental distress, too.

I first went into this breathing exercise with the idea that it would not help me at all. I was thinking, “how can something so simple help me?” As it turns out though, it helped me so much.

After a few rounds of doing pursed lip breathing, I felt the shortness of breath reduce by quite a bit. It was like it helped “reset” my breathing (for lack of a better explanation) and took the pressure off of my lungs to work so hard to get a good breath in.

Ever since, I have been practicing this breathing exercise for about ten minutes each day. I really feel like it has strengthened my lungs and continued to help me. Other people with long-COVID have found relief with it as well.

In conclusion

Breathing issues can be really scary and life disrupting now matter the cause. Exercises and methods such as pursed lip breathing can be really helpful when you don’t need to be hospitalized for your breathing difficulty.

I have found great relief with pursed lip breathing and highly recommend it for anyone who deals with shortness of breath.

Super Goals For The Fall!

Super Goals For The Fall!

We are almost to fall. Whoa! I was hoping things would be better in terms of the pandemic but that didn’t happen. In fact, things are actually much worse.

Regardless of things still being crappy, I am determined to make the fall good for my family and I. This means that a another “Life Check-In” is in order.

I completed one a couple of days ago and I wanted to share my fall goals with you guys!

The Life Check-In environment

A big part of doing a check-in, is the environment. It needs to be set up in such a way that I can accurately asses my life and dig deep on things.

This means comfort, comfort, comfort!

To do this, I first pick out a comfortable place to sit and start making some tea (or coffee). Next, I find a good ambience video to watch/listen to. There are a lot of good ones so it usually takes me a few minutes.

Once my tea and ambience video are ready, I get out my handy-dandy notebook with my purple gel pen. Then I sit down and start thinking!

For this particular check-in, I sat in my favorite chair in the living room. Here is a picture of it:

Well loved and cozy!

The following is the ambience video that I picked to put on my TV:

I love the videos on this YouTube channel. This one in particular caught my eye due to the name. Leaving the past and moving forward is what I want to do.

My tea beverage of choice was the following:

I made myself a Pumpkin Chai latte. Absolutely delicious!

These three things together set the stage for another wonderful check-in!

How I am doing and goals

I decided to break this down into different parts of life…

Physical health-

I am doing great physically overall. My workouts are consistent, diet is relatively good, my supplements are having a positive effect etc.

The only goal I have for my physical health is to get in some more vegetables each day. They are so healthy and I just feel like I need more of them.

Mental health-

I am a naturally, extremely anxious person. This pandemic is not helping that at all. In fact-it is making it even worse.

My goal is to not read/watch so many stories about severe COVID infections. I know I need to stay vigilant and in the know about what is going on but I have been doing too much with these horror stories.

I don’t know how much good reaching this goal will do but I will try anyways. Sitting in my bed and crying is not conducive to a good life.

Work/career/finances-

I have two goals for the fall in this area. They are as follows:

  1. Snag a remote job- I have a lot of skills and 1.5 college degrees (didn’t finish my master’s degree) to bring to the table. There is no way I wouldn’t be a good candidate for some of these jobs!
  2. Get my tea line going- Once I secure a job, my goal is to start a line of teas. I will reveal more about this when I actually get a job.

Family-

Family life is going well overall. I do have two goals and they are as follows:

  1. Reach out to loved ones more- I need to talk to my parents and brother more. Sometimes they don’t think I like them and that isn’t true- I am just bad about contacting people. I always wait for them to do it and I don’t want to do that anymore.
  2. Have more meals together (my husband, son and I)- We usually do our own thing when it comes to eating. I want us to start sitting at the table at the same time and eating some of the same things.

Romantic relationship-

My goal for this part of my life is to have some at-home date nights. I just want to keep our relationship fresh and fun which is hard to do when we can’t go out anywhere. Hopefully some of the ideas I have seen will work for us.

House and home-

My goal here is to keep my home cleaner and more organized. I am never going to be like the women I see on YouTube that have perfect homes but I can do better than what I have been.

Leisure/hobby-

I love to blog as a hobby. My goals for it are as follows:

  1. Increase my reach- I want to get a lot more views each day/week/month. To do this, I think I need to work on my SEO skills and go back to tweak some of my older posts. If you have any ideas for me about this, please leave a comment!
  2. Keep improving on content- I want to keep putting out quality content that is informative and helpful for many people.
  3. Improve look of site- I want to make some tweaks to how my site looks so that it makes people want to stay a bit longer.

I also love to read but haven’t been doing it much as of late (I sure have bought a lot of books though!). My goal is to read at least one book a month starting in the fall.

Beauty-

I try not to be vain, but I do care about the way I look. Because of this, there are some goals I have for fall regarding the outer physical part of me. They are as follows:

  1. Maintain my facial skin- At this point, there really is no other option for my skin when it comes to clearing up my severe hyperpigmentation. My goal is to just focus on using the things that don’t make it any worse (aloe Vera gel, rosehip oil and sunscreen) instead of wasting money on so called dark spot removers. I have pretty much given up at this point.
  2. Clear up my back and chest acne- My goal is to have the acne in these areas get cleared up. I am going keep using my sulfur/salicylic acid soap most days of the week.
  3. Figure out how to retwist my locs- My goal is be successful at retwisting my locs this fall. It has got to be done! I don’t feel it is safe to go to the salon and I don’t really want to spend the money anymore.
  4. More consistency with under eye massages- My goal is to be doing the Gua Sha massage and LED light massage under my eyes multiple times a week. I fell off the band wagon a bit with that and I want to get back on it to see results.

So there are my fall goals!

I really like doing these check-ins. They allow me to come up with goals that will help me feel even better about myself and life. Even if I don’t reach them all the way- the fact that I tried is good enough.

What goals do you guys have for the fall?

Thanks for reading!

10 Ambience Video Finds for Mid-Summer

10 Ambience Video Finds for Mid-Summer

There is still so much beauty in life despite the pandemic. It can be experienced through pictures like this and videos.

So I already did one post on great ambience videos for the summer but I decided to do another one. This is because I found some really good ones that others may like.

These don’t all go along with the season- they are just some ones that can be enjoyed on any day!

What ambience videos are

I have talked about what they are in each one of my other posts about them but I will do it again for this one.

These types of videos have nice scenes- some have things that move in them and some are just still. They also have sounds and/or music that go along with the scene. Some examples of sounds/music that are put into ambience videos are as follows:

  • Cooking and kitchen sounds
  • Fireplace sounds
  • Rain and storm sounds
  • Wind
  • Ocean waves
  • Jazz music
  • The sounds of walking through the snow or leaves
  • Birds chirping

and so many more! A lot of these videos will even have multiple sounds combined- just like life.

Ambient videos are great for transforming the environment. If the scene is immersive enough, you may actually feel like you are there without actually visiting the place. The sounds/music are also great for studying, sleeping, relaxing, writing, doing art etc.

Why I like them and I how I use them

About a year ago, I was looking for fireplace videos on YouTube because I thought my son might enjoy it. I then came across the Calmed By Nature ambience video channel and was hooked!

These types of videos are just so relaxing to me and the immersive ones put me in other places that I can’t be in. They help my mental state and even motivate me. I usually put them on my computer while I am surfing the web or typing stuff up. I also like to put them on my television screen

My favorite types of ambience videos are ones that have cooking, eating and light conversation sounds.

Why I do these posts

I think of this as a health and lifestyle blog. Most of the posts I do are health related and there is of course a mental piece to that.

I believe that these ambience videos can do wonders for our mental health which in turn helps our lives. The ability to see a different place or time period can get us out of our heads for a while. Sometimes we need that.

If we are stressed, angry or sad due to something in our lives-an ambience video can relax us. If we are lacking motivation to get something done- an ambience video can energize our minds to be able to complete it.

These deserve a place in one’s life or at least be tried out once!

10 ambience video finds for mid-summer

  1. Star Wars ambience

I am not the biggest Star Wars fan but I do like it enough for this to be a fun one. My son really likes it too!

This was a pleasure to have on while I was reading and working on my novel that I am writing. It also made me want to watch one of the movies again.

2. Gotham City ambience

If you are a superhero show/movie fan like I am, you will like this. Batman isn’t my favorite superhero but he is up there! I have enjoyed all of the batman movies with Christian Bale and I also found the Gotham show to be fantastic.

This ambience video has the great scene of Gotham city. It even changes views of the city multiple times. The city lights, rain, moving cars, helicopter and the night sky make for that immersive experience I like (and I am sure others do too!).

The music is from the show and does indeed have an “epic” feel. It is very energizing-not something to relax or sleep to. I have found it great to clean the kitchen and closets to.

3. Downton Abbey ambience

This show never looked good to me. It just seemed like something I wouldn’t enjoy at all. One day a few weeks ago- I decided to give it a chance because I didn’t know what else to watch.

I was hooked!

I ended up binge watching the hell out of this show. Definitely worth the hype that it gets. I am now officially into period pieces.

This Downton Abbey ambience video is so cheery. The music is gorgeous on the show and I love hearing the longer versions of the songs. I find it great to have on while I am reading.

If you are a Downton Abbey fan, this one is for you!

4. Orient Express ambience

For a long time now, I have a had a thing for trains. I think it would be so fun to ride and have dinner on one with my husband.

Seeing that one of the channels I am subscribed to came out with this one, I had to click on it right away. The scene is exactly what I would want out of a train ride. It is so cozy. I can picture myself sitting in the booth with my husband, chatting away and looking outside as we wait for our food.

The rain and light sounds of the train moving are so relaxing. Definitely great for reading and just sitting around.

5. Japanese Onsen ambience

This ambience video showcases a type of bathing facility (called an Onsen) one would find in Japan. The water is hot and is for relaxation purposes only-not for getting clean.

I find this video to be absolutely beautiful. The visuals of the water coming out, sounds of the water, steaming cups of tea and music all come together to make a relaxing three hours.

I used this while I was in bed for the night and it calmed my body down so that I could get good rest.

6. Virgin River ambience

I am obsessed with this show. I binge watched season three and season four can’t come soon enough! Jack and Melinda are such a good looking couple.

The music on this is from the show’s soundtrack and is so beautiful. I find it perfect for relaxing and reading a book.

7. Bossa Nova beach cafe

This is by one of my favorite ambience video creators. He/she puts a lot of love into the videos and they are always top notch.

This cafe scene by the beach looks so nice and I wish I was there. I love the upbeat feeling of the boss nova with the sounds of the ocean waves. The video is great for relaxing, reading or studying.

8. Date night on a beach

Just like the train ambience video listed, this scene captures a setting that I have been wanting to be in for quite some time.

Having a beautiful dinner on the beach with the sounds of nature all around us-would be a dream come true. Maybe one day it will happen- or maybe not. Who knows when this pandemic will end!

I love the music that goes with the scene and it was perfect to relax to.

9. A picture says a thousand words

This still image drew me in and I had to click on it. Where is this person going? Why did he/she/they stop on the side of the road? Does or do he/she/they need help? Is or are he/she/they in trouble? You can make up many stories from it yourself.

The music selection is wonderful-really chill. I found it perfect to relax to and read my book to.

10. Allegedly the best chillout music

I don’t know if this has the best chillout music but it sure is fantastic! I love the scene as it looks like it would be a great vacation spot. I don’t know where it is located in this world, but I want to be there!

The song selection is perfect for the scene and it was great to relax my mind/body/soul to.

Try these out!

These videos are great and I hope you like them to. There are so many other ones to be found on YouTube so make sure to check some out. They may just make a positive difference in your life if you regularly put them on.

Do you have any ambience videos that you really like?
