Noisy Sleep

For many people, sleeping is much easier with a little bit of noise in the background. While there are plenty of machines on the market that create a myriad of sounds intended to soothe and help you get to sleep, sleep professionals believe that white noise is the best for lulling us to sleep. For those having difficulty falling and staying asleep, white noise machines can be a great help by emitting a calming noise while blocking out other sleep distractions.

What is White Noise?

Much in the same way that white light is comprised of the entire color spectrum, white noise is comprised of all sound frequencies. Constant white noise makes it harder for your brain to pick out other sounds that could distract you and keep you from sleeping, allowing you to spend more time in deep, undisturbed sleep.

Benefits of White Noise Machines

  • They reduce sleep disturbances.

  • They are easy to travel with, so you can sleep well wherever you go.

  • You only pay for the machine once, so over time it will cost less than other sleep aids.

  • There are no side effects or health risks as there are with sleeping pills.

  • Years of research have yielded positive results.

  • Some studies suggest they boost cognitive performance.

Using White Noise Machines in Moderation

There are few things as frustrating as not being able to sleep, and most of us will try anything to get the rest we need. If you're having trouble sleeping, we suggest trying a white noise machine before turning to sleep pills or other remedies. We always suggest taking the safer route to better sleep.

Keep in mind, however, that white noise machines, as with most other sleep aids, should be used in moderation. If you use a white noise machine every night at your home, you may experience difficulty falling asleep in the absence of one, such as in a hotel room or at a friend's home.
