For years I lived next to Henry Hudson Parkway. One cool spring night, I was Skyping with a friend in Japan and she yelled “F***! What is that noise?” I explained it was a motorcycle. “Why is it SO LOUD? how do you sleep? How are you not insane?”
It was a good question. I have the skill to sleep through pretty much anything. But, when I did move recently I was in a tiny room facing a backyard. When I woke up the next morning, I couldn’t believe how deeply I slept and how refreshed I felt.
Turns out even when you think you’ve slept through noise your brain actually hears it, which can disturb your REM sleep. REM, or Rapid Eye Movement, is the deep restful sleep that really recharges you. Light pollution is another issue, especially if you share your bedroom. You can use eye masks but sometimes they are uncomfortable (but not Manta Masks! ) I tried to use ear plugs but they hurt, and later I had an ear infection. I’m not sure those two things are related but I’m not chancing it. Now I’m going to use a Sleep Crown to comfortably block out light and noise. Visit their site here.
A Sleep Crown can be used to calm down and relax in many different ways by covering most of the head for sleep. Use in combination with your most blissful pillow. Simply place the pillow over the top portion of your head, curved-side down. Secure and tuck the pillow over your eyes and ears and align the curve around your nose and mouth to ensure plenty of space to breathe. If you are an active sleeper, your pillow may shift off in the night.
