When to Get Custom Moulded Ear Plugs for Sleeping
Your sleep quality is trackable and measurable. Start tracking how well your body is actually sleeping at night with a bracelet, ring, or app. Once you have some actual data, you can then judge if it is time to consider adjusting your sleep habits.
Another way to tell if you should give your hearing specialist a call is if you feel tired, exhausted, or irritable due to lack of sleep. What’s more, your general physician may recommend that you get more sleep. At this time, you will want to consider custom moulded ear plugs.
Finally, consider your sleep environment. If you or your partner sleep with the television on, the area near your sleep environment is loud, or you are a light sleeper, it may be time to consider night time ear plugs. A common sleep disrupter is noise. The sound of a television, whether it be a familiar movie or infomercials, keeps your brain awake while you try to sleep. What’s more, the sound of vehicles, the city, or other noises can keep parts of your brain alert, robbing you of quality sleep.
