Hey Hart Beat. I want to share a little secret with you today. As you loyal readers know, I’ve been writing this blog here for four years now (scary…) and during this entire time I’ve not had the pleasure of working solely here on the blog. I’ve had college, life and work all to do while coming up with love notes and good songs to recommend. It’s a lot.
Other than the countless cups of coffee and late nights, one of the ways that I’ve discovered to make this multitasking life possible are two websites that make a hell of a difference when you’re courting for the creativity mojo. The two sites are both ambient noise makers of the best sort. The first, Coffitivity, recreates the wonderful murmur of voices and chatter that you get from working at your favorite coffee shop. The bonus? You can take it with you and even play it when you’re working from home. The second site is called Rainy Mood and it’s pretty self explanatory. The site plays a seamless stream of a rain storm with some light thunder in the background. It’s magical.
Now, each of these sites on their own are extremely comforting and relaxing. What’s even better, you ask? PLAYING THEM BOTH AT THE SAME TIME. It’s a serious game changer. I’m actually doing it right now and have had them both on while working for the past hour or so. The combination of comforting chatter and relaxing rain makes it possible for me to go for hours and prevents the fatigue I would have if I did the same with my favorite music or radio shows.
So there you go Hart Beat, a little tip from me to you. Hope you’re having as much of a productive morning as I am right now. 😂😂😂
P.S. My life most days… The struggle is real.
