Sleep isn’t just about beauty; it is about sanity. Trying to function on minimal sleep is something we wouldn’t wish upon anyone. And the struggle is real. Here are the three reasons why introducing a white noise machine to your life is going to save it, and the lives of those around you too.

Soothing Sounds

For some, sleeping in silence can be tough. And for others, they don’t have silence and are struggling to sleep through the noise around them. Regardless of your struggle with sounds or lack thereof, a sound machine offers soothing sounds that will put you to sleep like a baby. Look for a sound machine that offers a variety of sounds so that you have plenty of options to choose from. Maybe you’re into falling asleep to the sound of crickets, and maybe you’d rather be lulled to sleep by a train sound. To each his own.

Volume Control

If you’re looking to drown out outside noise, then you’re going to want a white noise machine that you can really crank up to high volume levels. And for those who are looking for something quieter to cut the silence, you’ll want a white noise machine that can operate at a quieter level. Thankfully, there are white noise machines that have something for everyone—devices that have 20 different volume levels so you can choose how loud you want things to get.

Portability
