Did you know there are various colors outside white noise? Finding a good balance for your ear will be important when searching for bedroom noise.

 Adding Colorful Noises


While searching for the perfect mix of tracks, the National Sleep Foundation recommends music at 60 to 80 beats per minute. Not certain what that looks like when looking for music? Think about classical or jazz music or try out the sleep lists on apps like Spotify. If those don’t strike a chord for you, pick some tracks by British star Ed Sheeran, Spotify’s top playlist for sleep tracks.

When it is a shared space with a spouse or partner and you cannot agree on a playlist or it distracts the other, earplugs may even do the trick! A lot of restless nights with couples can be attributed with an unbalance for one. Noise for one can be a lifesaver while the other needs silence.

How you decide to add noise or listen is up to you. For some, they purchase a sound machine that has various noises from white, pink, or brown. This provides a variety of sounds for you and your partner or spouse. Others run a fan, humidifier, or purifier to add a humming sound to the space. Apps are available on phones or Spotify provides sleep sound mixes. If you are struggling to find a balance and you share a room, shop for light ear buds so your roommate gets enough sleep.

A good night’s sleep is just as important as healthy food and regular exercise. Did you know that you spend nearly one-third of your life sleeping? So you better be good at it!

Good sleep is imperative for better health. If you fall short of sleep, your energy during the day, productivity, emotional balance, and weight all get affected. Try adding ambience to your bedroom to create a sound-ful sleep.
