Earlier this week, I started wearing ear plugs to bed and I have slept SO much better. It’s amazing the difference. I recommend to all city dwellers and/or companions of snorers. There’s just too much ambient sound where I live, including a constantly clanging gate, and it is simply blissful to sleep without a sound to disturb my nightly subconscious goings-on. I’m going to get a sleeping mask as well. I remember wondering why my cousin always wore those goofy things to bed, but I bet it’ll do marvelous things for my clarity of thought, not having to wake up when the sun does ‘n all.
