I live near an airport and some highways. We have good sound insulation, but in general a fair amount of low frequency urban noise gets through. I've spent the last few days way out in the sticks, mostly working on my laptop sitting outside, and what you get here is a lot of quiet, high-frequency stimulation: birds, crickets, wind chimes, running river noise in the distant background, goats making goat noises, wind in high branches. My general observation is that my T is much less of an issue after a day or two in this kind of environment, and this is actually one of the reasons (though far from the only one) that I'm eyeballing a move into a more rural area next fall. (I do computer work, I can take my job with me, and the timing is right for several other reasons related to my marriage / long-term goals). Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like this. I'm going to spend most of August working remotely from rural Montana, and will be interested to see how this plays out given a somewhat longer time frame.
