If you asked me to guess what people think is the most relaxing sound in the world, I'd go for something like a baby laughing, or a babbling brook. Or maybe ENYA'S greatest hits.
Nope. Apparently we get relaxed when we're just seconds away from eating one of the world's most delicious foods.
In a new survey, the number one thing that helps people relax and calm down is . . . the sound of SIZZLING BACON.
Overall, people seemed to vote for noises that came right before doing something they enjoy . . . not the traditional relaxing things like nature sounds and harps and stuff.
The top 10 are: Sizzling bacon . . . the opening notes of your favorite TV show's theme song . . . wine "glugging" into a glass . . . a beer can opening . . . a barbecue crackling . . . mail landing in a mailbox (???) . . . a crowd cheering a touchdown . . . bread popping out of the toaster . . . water boiling . . . and a champagne cork popping.
