Get the Deep Sleep Your Body Needs to Rebuild & Recharge
When was the last time you had a GREAT sleep?
How many nights in a row?
Interrupted sleep takes a serious toll on your health, productivity, and your emotions.
Regular earplugs are painful and fall out in the middle of the night. They’re hard to get in your ears without a struggle. Drifters are easy to use and feel like you’re wearing nothing at all.
Drifters earplugs ensure you sleep through the night so you feel refreshed with the energy you need to live your best life.
Eat, Sleep, and Be Happy!
You need sleep as much as you need to breathe and eat. While you’re sleeping, your body is busy tending to your physical and mental health and getting you ready for another day.
When you’re deprived of sleep, your brain can’t function properly. It affects your cognitive abilities and emotional state. If it continues long enough, it can lower your body’s defenses, putting you at risk of developing chronic illness.
The more obvious signs of sleep deprivation are excessive sleepiness, yawning, and irritability. Chronic sleep deprivation can interfere with balance, coordination, and decision-making abilities. You are more at risk for falling asleep during the day, even if you fight it.
Sleep deprivation prompts your body to release higher levels of insulin after you eat, promoting fat storage and increasing your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Sleeping With Snoring Noise
The majority of people we meet complain of a snoring partner – and it’s not always men who are the culprits (surprising… I know)
Losing sleep because of a snoring partner puts a real strain on your relationship. Whether it’s sleeping in separate rooms, punching (or smothering) your partner to make them shut up, or developing a deep disdain for their existence – it can wreak havoc on so many levels.
Then there’s noisy neighbors, barking dogs, nearby trains or traffic, the on-off sounds of appliances, crying babies… the list goes on.
The solution seems obvious: Block out as much noise as possible so you don’t hear it.
While some people find white noise and sleep gadgets helpful for drifting off… sometimes, you’ve just got to turn off the noise and get the hell to sleep! You can try changing up your diet, checking in with a sleep coach, or counting sheep, but none of these solutions will quiet noise like a good pair of earplugs can.
The Problem with Most Earplugs for Sleep
If noise is keeping you up at night, you know that there are a lot of different products on the market that you can plug into your ears to reduce the noise. For some people it’s as easy as buying disposable earplugs at the store and stuffing them in your ears before bed.
For others, it’s more complicated.
No matter which “off the shelf” earplugs you try, there’s always something that makes them impossible to use. Some of them are difficult to get in properly (that’s right Foamies, we’re talking about you).
With disposable foam earplugs, you have to roll them up and race to get them deep enough into your ear to be effective and not fall out. If you get that far and are able to block out some noise, you might find them painful in the morning or worse – in the middle of the night.
That’s because foam earplugs start to expand from the moment you stop crushing them. And they continue to put pressure on your ear canal until you remove them. That’s just how they work.
Some people get irritated skin from foam earplugs. It might be caused by the rough surface, sensitivity to the chemicals they’re made of, or a buildup of bacteria from extended reuse.
Side sleepers (the majority of clients we see) enjoy the added discomfort of earplugs putting pressure on the inside and outside of their ears. So, if your earplugs are not specially designed to avoid sticking out, you can forget about sleeping like you’re used to.
What else can I do to reduce night time noise?
While earplugs help to reduce night time noise, you have several additional options, including headphones, sound generating apps, fans, white noise machines, and room modifications.
Several sleep headphone designs are available, but they tend to be cumbersome if they are wired. If they are wireless, they tend to be too bulky to allow for side sleeping
You can buy sleep masks and pillows that have built-in speakers to add sound into the mix but, again, they can be awkward and uncomfortable.
Sound apps can be found on your phone and/or in conjunction with headphones. You can even find great sound libraries of music, meditations, nature sounds, and sleep stories on Youtube.
White noise machines produce a consistent noise that sounds like falling water or radio hum. This can help drown out other sounds. You can get the same effect with a fan.
You might even consider modifying your room. Soft absorbent materials, like curtains and carpet, will help deaden the sound and quiet the room. If outside noise are to blame, you can get sound isolating curtains.
