Sounds could definitely be a helpful treatment that allows us to fall asleep quickly and enjoy a pleasant rest over the night. Nevertheless, we should keep in mind that sometimes selecting the wrong sound could be easily changed to noises; causing severe side effects in our sleep cycle.

An easy example of what kind of noises we are referring to could be the whir of a fan; we even have the possibility of downloading an app of white noises.
