Dautovich says that a noiseless night is best for sleep. Since this is not possible for many of us, she says the sounds we really need to eliminate are the ones that are unpredictable. That means getting rid of typical sleep disruptors – like ambulances or a slamming door – but also music, which is better for preparing to sleep rather than keeping you snoozing. If you do have unavoidable sounds encroaching on your sleep, try a white noise machine. Marpac's Dohm ($60) is National Sleep Foundation recommended and an old favorite.
