If you wake up in the morning after experiencing low-quality sleep, there’s no mistaking the feeling. The lack of adequate sleep can easily carry into your whole day- affecting your mood, energy levels, mental sharpness, and physical wellbeing.
At Wallbeds n’ More Reno we want you to get the best sleep possible every night so you can tackle your daily life. In this article we discuss the effects that white noise can have on the quality of your sleep.
Why Quality Sleep is Crucial
“Sleep is essential to every process in the body, affecting our physical and mental functioning the next day, our ability to fight disease and develop immunity, and our metabolism and chronic disease risk,” says Dr. Erica Jansen, a Research Assistant Professor of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Michigan.
Opposite of our restful physical state while asleep, our brains are quite active as we slumber, conducting many important functions. Our entire health and wellbeing – physically and mentally – relies on getting quality sleep. Dr. Jansen makes a connection between mental health and sleep, stating that “chronic exposure to poor sleep quality is associated with depression, anxiety, and other conditions.”
Support Rejuvenating Sleep with White Noise
Since quality sleep is so important to our health and wellbeing, it’s no wonder so much research is done looking for the best ways to get a good night’s sleep.
You may want to try using white noise when the sun sets tonight, especially if you have trouble falling asleep or you tend to wake up at odd hours.
Falling asleep to the sound of white noise can help you:
- Set your brain’s focus on the soothing rhythm
- “Turn off” your mind and stop thinking about your to-do list
- Distract from environmental noise
- Create a relaxing space
Much like the waves of the ocean rolling onto a beach, the repetitive, generalized sound of white noise can help your mind ease into a state of relaxation for sleep. But what exactly counts as “white noise?”
What is White Noise?
The term “white noise” gets its name from the similar phrase, “white light,” which is a blend of all visible light wavelengths. Similar to white light, white noise is a blend of all sound frequencies audible to the human ear played at an equal intensity (or amplitude).
It is recommended to start at a low volume and increase if needed. Using a small device or app on a phone is more effective than leaving a television screen on a fuzzy station. The screen could easily be too loud and add light to a room.
If white noise is too distracting, you may look into pink noise or brown noise. These sounds are thought of as being similar to waterfalls or rain.
