I not only enjoy the humming of a fan while I sleep, but I often use a white noise machine that I place in a corner of the room. The noise produced from it is rather relaxing as well as sleep inducing. The white noise produced by this machine is somewhat like that of rushing air-very sleep inducing indeed.
I fall asleep when there is silence. Because I've had problems with a noisy neighbor, I've lost a lot of sleep until he was finally evicted for non payment You'd think someone with money problems wouldn't be causing a noisy ruckus wouldn't you?
