Ever sleep under the interchange of two major metropolitan highways? Ever sleep within arms reach of a refrigeration truck loaded with turkeys? Ever sleep smack between a busy railroad track and a rocky Pacific seashore? Ever sleep near a Florida beach during Spring Break? Ever sleep in a campground that was so quiet you could hear an owl hoot from a quarter-mile away … all night long without stopping?
Most nights we don’t deal with these things, but sometimes getting Zz’s can be a challenge.
This lifestyle isn’t for control freaks. It is not our place to make demands on our neighbors to be quiet so we can sleep. Our sleep isn’t their problem. Night time isn’t for sissies. So we just turn on the white noise audio track and stick these yellow marshmallowy things in our ears.
Well, honestly, these earplugs are not always a total solution. In very noisy situations we have a multitude of sleep therapy solutions … black-out sleep masks (I can’t explain why that helps) and some calming oils in the diffuser and turning on the dehumidifier to pump up the white noise… but not necessarily all in that order. The mask should be the last thing. Of course you know that.
So … Good night cars. Goodnight choo-choo under the stars. Goodnight owl hooting in the night. Goodnight ocean, please sleep tight. Goodnight poor turkeys gobbling in the truck. Goodnight party peeps who don’t give a cluck.
NOTE: We like these because they are an inexpensive and disposable one-use solution to get some Zz’s.
