Listening to 'pink noise' could be the latest way to get a good night's sleep.
We've all heard of white noise and the black and grey fuzzy tv screen that usually accompanies it, but now there's a new colour noise on the block that could be the latest way to get a great night's sleep. Oh, and it's millennial AF.
Enter 'pink noise'.
Being touted as the latest solution to those restless nights, if you're someone that suffers from tossing and turning, and your Sleep Cycle never tracks more than 6 hours of snooze, then 'pink noise' could be the answer to your prayers. And it sounds pretty...
So how does pink noise work?
Well, whilst white noise can help you drift off because of its inherent ability to block out all other sounds (and drive you slightly bonkers), pink noise is all about improving the quality of your sleep once you're already dozing. Nice.
'A balanced, steady mix of high and low frequencies', according to Pure Wow, the millennial-friendly pink noise gets its name because light of the same frequency appears pink.
