    The gentle sounds!

    The gentle listening sounds worked(listening to waves&birds amidst horns&sirens,ha ha ha)-I arrived at my pool hall very calm-although I lost my match 7-5 -but on evaluating my play, I realized I am trying to get too perfect rather than just getting in the general area!And as they say "if you think your perfect, try walking on water"-but I won my individual at my other pool hall 9-7-so, I've found the stress-relief answer and now moving on to NOT BE PERFECT!Thank-you for the "Odd suggestion!"

    Re: The gentle sounds!

    Carol, some years ago selling those tapes was advertised
    pretty heavy. I think ocean waves was the program.
    Anyway as I recall it was a stress reliever, but wait
    that's not all!! Sorry I can't remember the whole story
    I've slept since then. But I have used ocean waves as
    a way to relax, only in my mind not on tape, for
    self-hypnosis and an aid to help me fall asleep.
    The mind works in strange ways!

    Thank you Rod,
    Yes ,it definitely tunes out all the annoying sounds,when travelling to Manhatten, especially my husband cursing at the cabbies!
    Take care of yourself-and I like that "Stay smooth" thing going on there!

    You're welcome.

    Glad it worked for you.

    I generally like more upbeat music, on my way to play. Something with 'drive' to it. It's the opposite of the soothing stuff you were working with, but to each his/her own. . . .
