3 Awesome Reasons Why Sleeping With White Noise is Good for You

by | Feb 14, 2017 | Sleep

Ever wanted something that could help you sleep well, reduce stress and curb anxiety? Turns out there are apps for all three of those things. In this case, a white noise app might be all you need to finally get some rest.

Big sleep benefits

Can white noise help you sleep? It sure can! White noise drowns out jarring sounds, like a barking dog or that neighbour who listens to death metal at 2 a.m. Overall, it can help you fall asleep quickly and sleep more soundly. It also provides a soothing focal point for your buzzing brain that might otherwise be caught up with worries or dealing with a to-do list.

White noise for anxiety and stress

Getting the sleep your body needs is one of the best ways to reduce stress and anxiety, but white noise can also be used outside the bedroom. For example, popping your headphones on with some white noise during your lunch break can act as a cue for your brain and body to relax and focus on something other than daily stresses.
