If you go outside your home and close your eyes, what sounds do you hear? If you live in the city you probably hear cars, honking horns, people talking, dogs barking, or music playing; if you are in the country, you might hear birds singing, dried leaves blowing across the ground, running water, or maybe just quiet. People attuned to noise may feel uncomfortable when it is quiet. Other people seek out quiet places like Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument to help them relax.
