Does white noise work for you?


It helps some people sleep or concentrate, but it only makes the situation worse for others.

    Wow! Fantastic answer! Very in depth. :)

    It's never worked for me as a sleep or concentration aid. I'm hoping to get to a neurologist to get tested for a sensory processing disorder one of these days, and see if occupational therapy will work.

    Very interesting!

    I tend to go either way with the music. Sometimes it helps, while others it distracts me. I think it depends on how much sensory input I had recently.

    Lavender is amazing stuff. It's one of my favorite scents. Makes nice tea, too.

    Once I save up enough for a smart phone, I might look into an app like that. The music geared towards beta waves tends to relax me very well. Thanks for the comment!

    I'm a huge fan of Melatonin! Nature Made has a wonderful melt-on-the-tongue melatonin supplement that tastes just like chocolate mint. It helps knock me out but still doesn't keep me asleep.

    Thanks for the comment and well wishes! Great hub, too!

    Hmmmm, while sharing, that both by definition of your choice in reality are white sound, from the understanding I have, the difference is the frequency, although unsure really. Just supposing it may possibly the perception with individual sensitivity

    I'm with you there. Give me silence whenever possible!

    Interesting that you and your baby seemed to react similarly. I wonder if there's something genetic which determines the effectiveness or ineffectiveness.
