Are you sick of waking up in the middle of the night because of loud sounds? Do you have a hard time falling asleep due to pesky outdoor noises? Soundproof Windows are an invaluable solution to your home that not only lessen the effects of noise but also provide you with the great night’s sleep you deserve!
You have probably experienced tiredness due to waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to fall back asleep. What may not be as well-remembered though is the fact that your body may not have fully woken up. Your brain can process sound throughout the night regardless of whether you fully wake up. The noises you hear can impact you on more basic levels like alternating sleep positions and more intense levels such as increasing your heart rate. The variety in nighttime noises can cause changes to be so brief that you may not even recall waking up in the middle of the night.
Further proof of the detriment caused by loud noises is explained through the World Health Organization study entitled “Burden of disease from environmental noise”. This study discovered that common environmental noises like cars and people have a negative impact on our overall health. There are links to cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment in children and more.
The New York Noise Abatement Commission has also released a warning regarding noises throughout the night. They found that noise can not only damage your ears, but can indeed disrupt sleep and create stress. As mentioned previously, the most worrisome aspect of this information is that the effects of noise are most impactful when we are not even aware of being awoken during the night.
If the sounds become excessive enough, you can eventually experience sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation has even more links to health problems and lower workplace productivity. For example, getting less than five hours of sleep a night can increase the risk of death from all causes by about 15 percent! Moodiness, depression and weight gain are only a few of the other notable effects of a lack of sleep.
