Lets take a break, and take a trip to some different lands... Turn your volume on, select a world and click the link
Griffindor Common Room - You’re sitting in a comfortable chair in front of the fireplace in the Gryffindor common room as the evening wind swirls against the windows. You’ve got a book to read and a cup of tea that you’ve charmed to stay warm and stir itself on occasion, and even though you have some homework left to do, you feel very much at ease > http://harry-potter-sounds.ambient-mixer.com/gryffindor-common-room
Slytherin Common Room - You are a 5th year at Hogwarts and you’re sitting in the Slytherin Common Room trying to stay awake and study but you’ve never been a very studious person so your eyelids are getting heavy and you find yourself falling asleep in a brown recliner while two other Slytherins are able to stay awake with the aid of coffee. There aren’t any windows for you to see outside, but since the common room is submerged under the lake you can faintly hear the sound of water just on the other side of the walls. > http://harry-potter-sounds.ambient-mixer.com/slytherin-common-room
Hufflepuff Common Room - You’re sitting in one of the comfy chairs in front of the wooden fireplace carved with badgers, someone’s cat (You’ve named it fluffball) sitting beside you. The kitchens are in full force and in full raid by students. Occasionally you can hear someone’s footsteps by the windows, but you’re took focused on your charms homework. You’re a Hufflepuff and proud, and what would you be if not hardworking? > http://harry-potter-sounds.ambient-mixer.com/hufflepuff-commonroom
Game of Thrones
High garden Party - “At Highgarden we have many spiders amongst the flowers. So long as they keep to themselves we let themspin their little webs, but if they get underfoot we step on them.” > http://got.ambient-mixer.com/highgarden-party
The Wall - "…It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.” > http://got.ambient-mixer.com/the-wall
Kings Landing - The busy capital of Westeros welcomes you. You walk amongst rich and poor alike, people selling their wares as they are bartered for them, knights try out their new swords whilst their squires tend to the horses. Someone somewhere a harp is played. > http://got.ambient-mixer.com/king-s-landing
Inside the Tardis -The doctor has invited you to take a trip with him in the Tardis, the world’s most famous blue police box!Don’t be fooled by the sounds of the engine in the background, the Tardis is way more than “just a machine”! > http://dr-who.ambient-mixer.com/inside-the-tardis
Mines of Moria - After the fall of Moria, nobody know, why its happen. But few dwarves talking about Bane of Durin. When Fellowship enter the mines, they still do not know, that they will meet Dane of Durin face to face.… > http://lotr-sounds.ambient-mixer.com/mines-of-moria
Woodland Realm - Company enter the woods of Elvenking - Mirkwood. Many stories were tell about this forest - enchanted water, strange animals and tricks of wood elves are some of them. Elves are good and helpfull, but between dwarves from Lonely Mountain and Elvenking is hostility, which can destroy all hopes for Thorin, his friends and people from Laketown. > http://lotr-sounds.ambient-mixer.com/woodland-realm
Riding with the Winchesters - Dozing in the backseat of the Impala on the way to a little town in Indiana where a woman was found missing a heart on the night of the full moon, you hear the sound of the Winchester’s trying not to wake you during the long drive. Sam is diligently working the case file as Dean keeps his eyes on the road. Hang tight, it’ll be a while before they stop for a re-fuel. > http://supernatural-series.ambient-mixer.com/riding-with-the-winchesters
Cheap Motel Room - Eventually, you reach a one-stoplight town and settle in for the night. The AC is broken, so the window is opened. You can smell the wet gravel outside, and warm summer-night air bleeds into the room, carrying with it sounds of the highway. > http://supernatural-series.ambient-mixer.com/cheap-motel–room
Research with the Boys - Instead of thinking of that pesky history assignment as an essay, pretend you’re in a motel room with the Winchesters researching for a big case. Noises include keyboard typing and mouse clicks, writing on paper, random chair creaks, white noise, and the sound of a knife sharpening for good measure. (Because we all know Dean’s a little obsessed with keeping his weapons in top shape) > http://supernatural-series.ambient-mixer.com/research-with-the-winchesters
Loki’s Chambers - Loki takes some time for himself in his chambers, disregarding the outside world for a while in favor of literature. He studies and relaxes with only the company of his books. For once he almost could feel at peace, at least until Thor barges in, but for now the lyrical silence of Asgard is the only sound he hears > http://superhero.ambient-mixer.com/loki-s-chambers
Stark and Banner Lab - Because in Avengers tower, Tony and Bruce’s lab is the quietest place around. You sit in your comfy armchair in the corner of the lab and relax with your book, occasionally hearing Bruce scribble something and Tony sigh because 2048 is tricky. http://superhero.ambient-mixer.com/the-stark—banner-lab
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.

There *are* also a couple masterposts made that I find are helpful - including this one (full of more calming sites), this one, and this one.

a tip to try out for when you’re feeling bored studying and just not-feeling-it is to listen to ambient noises and absorve yourself in any atmosphere you want and imagine yourself working inside of it. it sounds weird, but i really like it, just thought i’d share!
ok one of my favorite atmospheres is of course harry potter world so here are all the resources i could find!! give it a try!!
