BCBZ Blogger was happy to learn that an easy way to access relaxing, natural sounds for meditation is to use a new Alexa skill. If you have any Alexa enabled device (Echo, Dot, Fire stick and more) all you need to say is "Alexa, Play Sounds of Nature" and you will get a gentle rain storm with distant thunder. It then loops through various audio files that are relaxing and better background noise than any television set. Face it, unless you are playing a meditation program on your TV, it is impossible to be calm and zen listening to television noise. So if turning off the TV or radio for "no noise" is not your style, try out Sounds of Nature the next time you want peaceful and relaxing sounds in your home.
