Sleeping Soundly:  Sound Sleep Machines

To

sleep soundly           rest

there are many factors involved . Eschewing caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and vigorous exercise before bedtime is important. Maintaining a normal bedtime schedule, and guaranteeing that your bedroom is dark, quiet, and cool can make a significant difference in your quality of sleep.  By quieting your mind (using relaxation methods such as deep breathing, yoga, or meditation) you can achieve a peaceful sleep
.  Each person is unique, and although it is very common to experience difficulty sleeping at times, continued sleeping issues need to be discussed with your doctor. You may have a sleep problem that needs diagnosis and treatment.

There are a variety of factors you can hold sway over for enhancing your sleep.  One you may not have thought about controlling is noise. You can’t control barking dogs, traffic sounds, noisy neighbors that play their TV too loud or argue, or even your playful children trying to be quiet while you try to get some more sleep. The good news is that you don’t have to control them to sleep soundly. If noise is the main issue disrupting your good night’s sleep, a

sound sleep machine

could be the answer.

Sound sleep machines

work by covering annoying background sounds with a soothing sound, so that you can relax and sleep. There are a lot of different types of sound machines for sale. The simplest type, which generally operates quite well for most, is a white noise machine. White noise is a combination of all of the frequencies of sound, so it masks noise by making it hard for your brain to decode one noise out of all the others. What does white noise sound like? It’s the soothing sound of rushing air. A prime example of a white noise machine is the Sleepmate Sound Conditioner 980A.  This machine has high and low settings along with a volume adjustment. It’s small, and light weight. Just plug it in and it’s primed to go.

Other sound machines are available that come with different sound options besides white noise, such as rain, ocean waves, or waterfalls. Some people find these sounds more enjoyable than white noise. Besides a standalone model, like the Sleepmate Sound Conditioner, sound machines come in combinations with alarm clocks or radios. Otherwise, if you have an MP3 player or an iPod with a docking station and speakers, you could purchase a white noise or nature sound track to use on your player — if you have it set it up in the bedroom.

Masking annoying noise is totally possible by utilizing a sound sleep machine. With the wide variety of options on the market today, you don’t have to lose sleep anymore. Try out a sound sleep machine, and you’ll be sleeping better in no time!
