Do you suffer from insomnia? Pink noise may help.

Do you suffer from insomnia?  Pink noise may help.

Insomnia is the clinical term for people who have trouble falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, waking too early in the morning, or waking up feeling unrefreshed.  If you suffer from insomnia, pink noise may help you get the sleep you so desperately need.


Insomnia

Causes of Insomnia:

A few of the many causes of insomnia are stress, poor sleep habits and eating right before going to bed.  Let's focus on stress.  Most people say their lives have stress.  Some people say their lives are full of a lot of stress.  It is hard to relax and get to sleep when we are operating under a lot of stress and worry.  We get into bed but our brains don't just turn off along with the bedroom lights.  We tend to lay there and think about everything that is stressing us out making it impossible to fall asleep; insomnia just continues to be a problem.  Pink Noise may help relax your brain so you can sleep.

Solutions for Stress:

There are many things we can do to help relieve the stress.  Some people get into various kinds of exercise that helps.  Exercise is certainly good for our general health and it can wear us out so at least our bodies are tired when we get into bed.  Yoga has long had a reputation of helping with stress and relaxation.  Eating a healthy diet is important also.

Pink Noise for relaxing the brain:

But, how do we get our brains to relax so we can fall asleep?  There are several studies that show that pink noise relaxes the brain.  In March, 2017 Time Magazine published an article "The Sound of Pink Noise Improves Sleep and Memory" and in June, 2019 Healthline wrote in an article that "Pink noise has potential as a sleep aid."  In the Healthline article they reference that in a small 2012 study in the Journal of Theoretical BiologyTrusted Source, researchers found that steady pink noise reduces brain waves, which increases stable sleep."  So if you have insomnia pink noise may help you sleep.

Listening to a constant sound that doesn't have variations can relax our brain.  Pink noiseis a consistent sound that mimics the sounds in nature; like rain, a light wind or rustling leaves.  These are sounds that are pleasant and help us relax. Typically, the sounds that wake us from sleep are abrupt sounds like snoring, a dog barking, the garbage truck; sounds that are sudden and not consistent.  If you suffer from insomnia, pink noise may calm your brain so you relax and go to sleep.  It can also help you stay asleep by not hearing other noises that could wake you.
