You’ve heard about synchronized swimming, but have you heard about synchronized sounds? Well, a new sleep study reveals that simply listening to your own natural brain rhythms in a synchronized fashion can help sharpen sleep.
Headed by Jan Born out of the University of Tubingen in Germany, sleep researchers found that during our deepest sleep, our brain’s electrical patterns present a slow oscillating-type rhythm.
Sleep is a precious commodity in many households around the world. For some people, it’s falling asleep in the first place. For others, it’s managing to remain asleep that’s the problem. One of the more common causes of problem sleeping is distractions brought on by noise in the environment. That’s why many people are beginning to take matters into their own hands in order to find sounds they sleep to so that they can ignore the sounds that tend to wake them up or keep them up at night.

- Garbage trucks
- Street sweepers
- Noisy Neighbors
Of course there are plenty more sounds that might be making a difference in your own little corner of the world, but these noises are some of the most commonly complained about.
