If you’re like me, you may find it easier to get work down with background noise. Some soft beats, a podcast or even just ambient noise can improve focus and help you get those tasks done faster.
While you could just open a window to let in some noise, you may want a more controlled mix. I’ve found Noisli to be the perfect solution for a relaxing background noise.
Their platform, which is available for free as a webapp or can be purchased for your smart devices, has 16 high-quality sounds loops for creating your own perfect mix. Choose from a variety loops like rain, forest, seaside, summer night, or coffee shop.d You can even mix them together or have Noisli create a perfect mix for you.
Their app also offers a shifting color background, and a distraction free text editor for those who want to immerse themselves in a more productive environment and get some writing knocked out!
There are other similar ambient noise apps available, such as White Noise and Rain Rain, which would be worth exploring since some of them offer a wider range of sound loops. However, for me, Noisli takes the win with it’s simple interface, clean design and extra features, such as its built-in timer, text editor and ability save your custom sound combos for later!
Give it a try, and let me know what you think! Or if you know of another great ambient noise app—I’d love to here about it.
