I love making new discoveries like this!
Have you ever heard of a White Noise Machine?
Say if you were relying on fans or a constant sound to keep you sleeping well because you have noisy neighbours, sound of cars or sirens wake you up, or even your own lover snoring. This can be a lifesaver!
You don’t have to get the machine, you can get audio files and play them, or use the fan, but this will be perfect if you just want a machine that does nothing but help you sleep!
How White Noise helps Sleep
It has been explained that our brains naturally crave sensory input, that include sounds. Our brains even try and create our own if we’re robbed of any stimulus, hence why sometimes we hallucinate. That also explains why when we’re asleep during a very quiet night, any random noise is likely to wake you up, including a passing truck or even creaking floorboard. It activates your restless brain, and will wake you up. However when you have a constant white noise, it actually gives your brain a tonic signal which dampens your own internal system.
So, if you really want to have a good nights sleep and you find yourself struggling because of noises, I recommend you to try white noise, whether you use a machine, fan, or anything else. It seriously works, and blocks out a lot of the sounds.
