Tune Out The Noise, How To Minimize The Risks Of Noise Pollution

The Big Q: What can you do about noise pollution in your home to protect your heart and overall health?

The Big A: If you live in a very noisy area, such as near a highway, airport or hospital, you may want to consider moving. If that is not an option, consider adding acoustical tile to your ceiling and walls to buffer the noise.

Double-paneled windows and insulation can also help. At the very least, you can sound-treat your home by adding heavy curtains to your windows, rugs to your floors and sealing air leaks. If it is only an issue occasionally, sound-blocking headphones can eliminate such disturbances.

If noise is an issue during the night, you may want to consider adding ‘pink noise’ to your bedroom. Pink noise is steady with a consistent frequency, like the sound of wind or constant rain.

Research shows that steady pink noise can help slow down and regulate your brainwaves for more stable sleep and improved sleep quality.

While pink noise CDs are available, you can also simply turn on a fan in your bedroom to block out noise disturbances and instead take advantage of this beneficial type of pink noise.

If you work in a noisy environment, be sure you are wearing ear protection at all times, and leave the site as often as possible, such as during breaks and lunch. Also be cognizant of exposures during your leisure time, such as that from motorcycles, lawnmowers, leaf blowers, and even loud music and television.

For your part, try to make less noise when you can, not only for your own sake but for the sake of those around you.

Have a terrific week.
