The world has grown in technology and along with it, it has gotten incredibly louder over time, bombarding us with sounds and lights. In order to better focus, relax or get to sleep, you may try considering blocking some of that extra noise out.
If you want to block the light out, you can wear an eye mask, but to block the sound you have a few more options. You can wear simple ear plugs and hear nothing, or else you can listen to music, or you can consider a noise machine that helps block out all of the noise and relax more easily.
This is the number one I have chosen for this list because it is high quality, without a large price attached to it. It has a nice wooden finish which sets it apart and it is also:
24 different noise settings
