Noisli is a free website that offers relaxing sound clips to help listeners be more productive, relax, or reduce stress. Tracks include storms, a river, a fan, a train, fire, wind, and even some white noise clips. You can pick multiple tracks at a time and set the volume control for each, and the website background slowly changes from one soothing color to the next. Sign up for a free account to access a timer, the ability to save favorite tracks, and a distraction-free text editor. 

Noisli can be used in the classroom in a variety of ways: to change the energy level of an entire class or to help an individual student focus. You can have students reflect on their feelings before and after listening, to help them identify emotions. Just be sure to not overuse the tool and remember that not all students learn best with or enjoy background noise. If you have students who are easily distracted while writing, encourage them to try the text editor with their favorite combination of sounds.
