PLAY WHITE NOISE AND RELAX
Can’t sleep? Is your baby crying all night long? Have to do some homework, but you can’t concentrate? Playing white noise will help you.
White noise is a method of masking sounds in the environment. In white noise, the average wavelength (amplitude) of each sound frequency is the same. As a result, there is a constant equal sound.
The sound of white noise can best be compared to that of a vacuum cleaner or an air fan. A television or radio without reception also sounds almost the same as white noise.
But, why is it called white noise? The color of the noise is based on the analogy with the colors of light. White light contains all frequencies in the visible range, just as white noise contains all sound frequencies.
White noise is used in many situations to mask ambient sounds. Thus, a crying baby can calm down and sleep better. But playing white noise can also be very nice for better concentration or a good night’s sleep for adults. In some cases, noise suppression can also have medical reasons: for example, it can help suppress (permanent) tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

Is it okay to play white noise all night?
You can play white noise all night with peace of mind. In fact: in many cases you will sleep better and more peacefully. Because white noise masks other ambient sounds, you are less likely to wake up from sudden sounds. For example, think of a passing car or rain.
Can white noise be harmful?
White noise may not be harmful, but not everyone likes it. White noise can be experienced differently per person: it does not always have the desired effect in people with (permanent) tinnitus. White noise is also no guarantee of soothing crying babies.
