Nayu's Craft TIme #115 White Noise

White noise isn't a song
I've hear about white noise for years. According to white noise is 
Also called white sound. a steady, unvarying, unobtrusive sound, as an electronically produced drone or the sound of rain, used to mask or obliterate unwanted sounds.

I have friends who use it at night to help them sleep. The other day a blog I regularly read mentioned using white noise to help their family sleep. I decided to find out what the fuss about white noise is.
Big mistake. I tried about 6 white noise tracks on Youtube and I disliked 5 of them. The thunderstorm one terrified me as I hate storms. The rain and the sea one made me want to use the bathroom as well as making me scared because any expanse of water bigger than a bath freaks me out.
Calm and tranquil if you aren't me. Picture source

The other tracks were just bad for my ears. The only one I vaguely liked I may use for relaxation, but definitely not for sleep. I'm an earplugs girl! Need it very quiet for me to get to and stay asleep.
These are my favourite brand! & this is not a sponsored shout out

So there you have my view on white noise. It's a no for me, but I'm glad it helps so many people relax. I'd love to hear your views on white noise! 
Since fans are used for white noise I'm fairly sure wind turbines might be too!


  1. thanks for sharing

  2. I love the variety of gentle sounds when sleeping . I was having a difficult time falling asleep when I traveled and white noise made a huge difference. For me It worked well.

  3. Sarah - you're most welcome!

    Faber@WhiteNoiseMachines I'm glad white noise works for you, I understand the science (vaguely) behind it, and can see how beneficial it is. Many friends use it to help relieve tinnitis. It's just not for me :)

    Thank you both for commenting!


Let me know what you think of my ideas, creation, and ramblings!
