This!.....and we´ve missed a descent thunderstorm here all summer.

I like thunderstorms, but I get excited (not relaxed).

The weather channel, total silence, being alone in the woods, being in water, petting my dog and cats in bed, exercise. Also storms, fires outdoors, driving, hitting golf balls on a range.

Popping bubblewrap
Running my hands along certain materials

Turning bottles of liquid upside down and then back up
Watching the sand fall in an hourglass
Fiddling with various small objects , pencils etc
Squeezing stress toys and other squishy toys
Rolling smooth rocks or spheres in my hand
Being wrapped in a blanket
Rocking in a typical stimming fashion
Smelling orange peels
Smelling my pet bird
Electronic music
Having my MP3 player nearby
ASMR triggers

This is going to sound absurd but, I enjoy listening to the sounds of wind chimes

Me too! I like it when there are lots of chimes clattering in the wind, to the point where it would probably get on someone else's nerves. I also have some in my bedroom where the ceiling fan makes them tinkle ever so gently once in awhile.

I love the sounds of Aeolian harps too...really wish I could have one in my yard. They are so expensive.

I always thought wind chines were intended for relaxation.

I find laughing very relaxing as well as the sound of horses neighing.

Funny thing is, I find the things NTs think are relaxing actually make me feel worse. I spent like 15 years trying to use NT relaxation methods and I failed.

For some reason, NTs seem almost offended that I find different things relaxing than they do.

I don't see a weird thing here. A couple of unique things, but not weird.

Mine are all cliche and have been mentioned.

I like there to be pressure or my wrists or someone hold my wrists. Lots of ppl say they don't like that.
I like the sound of airplanes.

I used to find rewinding and fast-forwarding a tv program quite relaxing, although this was when I was little. There could be the washing machine, tumble dryer and outside noises at night as contenders, but that's pretty much it.
