    Turn on some mellow music. Music has a way of reaching one's soul, and if you purchase the "soothing sounds of nature," it can be guaranteed that you will find yourself in an aura of utter and complete relaxation where even your biggest worry seems like a small ant in a room full of anteaters. If you can still hear your other surroundings, turn your volume up, shut your windows and your door, or tell them to quiet down.
