Benefits of using Ear Plugs whilst Sleeping

Tips to Improve Poor Quality Sleep

Avoid Poor Sleep Symptoms. Here’s A Trusted Method That Works

Sleep has many benefits beyond dreaming, helping our bodies to rejuvenate, regenerate and heal. These health gains are widely known and discussed. However, a recent UK study found over 30% of people have problems obtaining a good night’s sleep.

What are Sleep Plugs?

Sleep plugs are special earplugs designed to reduce or eliminate everyday noises that can help keep us awake. The list of these ‘perceptively loud’ sounds can vary in the decibel levels and range from a snoring partner to noisy neighbours, from children playing to birds singing, traffic sounds to loud music. These sounds are too numerous to list, but the issue remains; our ears and hearing do not have an off-switch, and this can lead to varying levels of sleep deprivation or having general poor sleep quality.

Muting Our Ears is an Important Matter

Let’s take a second to analyse how we can block-out light and mimic the nocturnal scene for the purposes of sleeping. We can draw the curtains, close the blinds, pulling down blackout blinds or slip on an eye mask. Our sense of vision can be easily muted.

For many of us noise disturbances during sleep is a key enemy, preventing many of us having productive, high energy and happy days. The quality of our sleep is a defining fact of how we see our world on a daily basis. Do we start off tired and irritable or motivated, excited and happy? Quality of sleep will affect our moods and well-being.

When trying to sleep and using an earplug, it’s imperative to use quality products and materials to help obtain the quality of undisturbed sleep we deserve. There are many products on the market, predominately based around stuffing foam deep into your ear. Typically, they are disposable and generally uncomfortable. Others are limited use, one size fits all, unhygienic options simply collecting our ear wax secretion and mixing with other contaminants, offering an increased infection risk.

What Makes a Good Sleep Plug?

To excel at blocking-out noise, a sleep plug has to fit well. Ideally a sleep plug should be custom-made for your specific ears. Besides being custom-made and a perfect fit, a quality sleep plug will be made from soft material so it is comfortable in the ear. It will be shaped to stay securely in-ear without causing you pain, discomfort or pressure on the pillow. And preferably, it should be marked with your name or a marker so that you know the left from the right. Dusk is not the best time to be fiddling about trying to fit your sleep plugs.
