Whether it’s our busy lives, screen addiction or just becoming more aware of our habits, many of us know we are not getting enough sleep, in theory laying down and falling asleep is pretty simple but it can prove quite the opposite for lots of us.
The Dohn Classic Natural Sound Machine from Yogasleep was first invented way back in 1962 and used to be sold under the name Sleep-Mate, the fact they are still a popular item today must prove they are more than just a fad. When unboxing the machine the most notable thing is the size of the Classic, measuring up at 5.8 x 5.8 x 3.8 inches. You will have to dedicate some space for this, however it can sit on your bedroom floor, you don’t need to keep it on the night stand.
Unlike many modern white noise machines, the Classic uses an integrated fan to create the noise, with two speed options and rotational casing mean you can adjust the tone and volume to find the perfect sound for you. This type of sound is great for masking background sound, be it the traffic outside or family chatting inside the house, making it a good choice for both adults and babies alike. Yogasleep suggest it is even good for settling sound sensitive dogs. Although the fan is running it doesn’t produce any air disturbance so you can relax to the sound of rushing air without being blasted in the face with cold air, the eight foot cable gives you options as to how close you have it to your bed at night.
When it comes to sounds it’s fan noise or nothing, you won’t find bird songs or rain fall and we actually love this, having too many options can be a distraction and often these recordings have noticeable loops drawing your attention and switching your mind back on. I know if I listen to rain forest sound’s I start getting visuals of the forest and before I know it I’m thinking of the plight of the Orangutan and BOOM I’m on my phone reading about ethically sourced palm oil.
The team behind the Dohm Classic are so convinced you will love the relaxing sounds of their natural noise machine they even offer a 101-day trial to see how you get on. We love the simplicity of the Dohm Classic, simply switch it on or off, no programs, lights or screens to mess around with. The sound it creates is relaxing but it can also be used to block out background noise in a work environment which can help you focus on the task at hand, it isn’t going to win any beauty contests but if it helps me get MY beauty sleep, that’s good enough for me.
