Since I get up at 5:00AM Monday through Friday, making sure I get quality sleep is very imprortant to me. The Ririan Project gives eight tips to help setup your bedroom in order to facilitate quality, energy producing sleep. The following tip is my favorite and has been helping me sleep soundly for years:
THE FAN Blocking out noise will help you not only fall asleep faster, but also reach a more restful stage of sleep and stay that way. The most popular way of doing so is to use ear plugs, but this may not be as effective as we’d like, because any sounds made by our own body (even breathing), are amplified.
Paradoxically, the best way to block out noise is to produce your own white noise. By having a constant sound that isn’t too loud, other, more disturbing sounds are blocked out. And since noise is probably the most common disruptor of sleep, you’re bound to have a positive effect from this. A fan is the most frequent choice.
