Are you getting enough sleep? Having trouble sleeping? Some background noise just might do the trick in helping you get some shut-eye. A National Sleep Foundation poll from 2012 found that 5% of Americans use some sort of sleep machine, smart device app, fan, etc to assist them in falling asleep. If you're having trouble sleeping, give it a shot for a few nights... I use my sound machine every single night (though I prefer the thunderstorm sound- it's the same idea).

Why does this help?

  1. The white noise helps drown out sounds that otherwise might be intrusive or annoying. This constant white noise serves almost like a barrier, keeping your brain at ease with your surroundings. This is a large component of how it helps you fall asleep, keeps your mind from wandering or worrying.
  2. Sleep routine. Every medical professional will tell you that having a routine before bed will help trigger your brain to let it know that it's time to go to sleep. Incorporate this into your sleep regimen.
  3. It creates a cocoon of sorts, that helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep. If you do wake up, the comforting noise will often help you fall back asleep quicker.
