Depending on whether or not you live in a noisy area, opening the window at night can vastly improve your sleep. The fresh breeze gets air circulating through the room, which your body loves! Also, in some areas, the open window can cool off the room. Science has proven several times over that people sleep better in cooler areas. And if the temperature outside is a little too hot or cold for comfort, the ChiliPad can help make up the difference for a good night’s sleep.
Background noise can also come wafting through that window. As I tip-tap-type away right now I can hear the soothing sounds of ocean waves and the gentle pitter-patter of rain.
During summer nights in North Carolina, I like to hear the cicadas scratch their rhythmic sounds and the crickets chirp according to the temperature. And if I’m lucky, I can hear frogs from a nearby pond croaking in their watery cradles.
In the fall, wind rushes through the dying leaves creating a shhhhhh sound reminiscent of a mother’s pleas for young ones to fall asleep.
In the winter, my dad would kill me if I opened the window while he’s paying for the heater to run. No background noises for me 😦
But the spring I love the most because of all the rain. I sleep like a cat when the window is open and the big raindrops are pelting the rooftop and the forest behind my house.
Sweet Dreams and Enjoy the Symphony,
