I’ve relished it since I was a kid.
The National Sleep Foundation defines “white noise” as that which reduces the difference between background sounds and “peak” sounds.
Whatever you call it, I love it. As a kid it was the central air system fan in our house running in the early morning. Now it’s the heater coming on at my house during the night or early morning when it’s cold.
I like music quietly playing in the background. I like the sound of the ocean waves crashing over and over at the beach. I like the sound of rain.
Even now as I write this, I hear the highway traffic off in the distance. Sort of sounds like the ocean. 🙂
White Noise. I love it.
What brings you calm in an unexpected way?
