  • Depends.
    there's times when the smallest sound won't let me sleep, then there's times when some music or background noise will relax me and put me to sleep. Even had a roomate who used to snore loudly, you could hear him down the hall and I was used to it.

      so does it just depend on your mood or whatever your brain decides for the day?

  • Not usually. Since I have difficulty falling asleep, I often stay up until the sun rises. By then, I am too tired to care about background noises. Sometimes music helps me fall asleep, but my earbuds are shot, so I haven't been able to do that. It's silence for me.

  • I'm used to the fans of my computer, the air purifier and the ceiling fan. But I wouldn't miss them.

    I think the only issue would be if my ears started ringing or I was able to hear my blood flowing. I would have to get used to that for a night or two. Then I'd be fine.

  • I can honestly sleep in a dead quiet room, a noisy room, pitch black and even heavily lighted rooms. When I'm tired, I'm tired. So I sleep. Ain't no where where I can't sleep.

      interesting sometimes I sleep with fan , I've noticed I sleep better with it on, but when my anxiety is heightened I turn on my app that plays relaxing melodies and I don't know why but brahms lullalby helps

  • Yes. I have a background noise machine that helps put me to bed every night. With soundtracks from a river, the ocean, the rainforest, etc.

  • I only realized that I needed a background noise (like a fan), when electricity went one night for a few hours and the place was so quiet I couldn't sleep

  • I have a fan going right now, but that's just because it's been so hot out. I don't really need much noise, though it can be calming.

  • Usually yes. If not a fan or AC then usually someone in my family is awake watching late night TV and I can hear it from my room. I actually enjoy having background noise cause I'm used to it and it reminds me that I'm not alone.

      They let the kids bounce a heavy ball (prolly basket ball), bang on pots, and I swear I've heard someone galloping in heels all all like 1 and 2am

    • 3mo

      Shoot my sons bedtime is 830 , there is no ball bouncing in the house you can break something, haha sure

  • Lol I'll use a fan and also have covers on I don't know why.
    Sometimes I sleep with the T. v. or radio on.
