Listening to calming stress reducing music or nature sounds may help you relax and sleep better. According to the 2002 National Sleep Foundation poll approximately 74% of American adults experience sleeping problems, 39% get less than seven hours of sleep each weeknight, and more than one in three are sleepy enough that it interferes with daily activities. Some research suggest that women are a little more susceptible to insomnia and experience it more frequently than men and chronic insomnia increases with age. Research has shown that specially adjusted sounds and noises heard by individuals can enhance their capacity to sleep.
To human hearing, white noise sounds kind of like a hiss such as the sound of an off station radio. Another example of white noise might be a waterfall or motor sound which all approximate a sound very similar to white noise. White noise just means that all frequencies are represented. White noise is good at masking most other kinds of sound because it drowns out other sounds by preventing your auditory system from focusing on any particular sound. Just as it's difficult to hold a conversation at a crowded room, it's difficult for your brain to focus on any one distracting sound or voice when you're already hearing sound at every frequency. White noise can promote sleep by reducing auditory distractions; drowning out other sounds that may distract you and therefore keep you awake.
