I hear ya guys, too many noises in the urban home and workplace. I like to sleep through the day on weekends (even though it is not a good sleep)
because once it gets past 11pm, the house falls silent (minus the kitchen fridge/freezer humming and occassional taxi driver using my road as a rat
run). I can sit and study in peace, read a book etc.
I have tried lying in a bath of water, but seem to always get a strage ringing sound in my ears, maybe the water pressure or something? Ear plugs are
effective at giveing some quiet also.
Not only do we crave the silence, we also need to relax our eyes, too many flashing images from tv, pc, too many un-natural and bright colours, images
every day. Can take its toll on our eyes. Nice to go out to the country side every now and then, just sit and stare at the clouds, cows, grass etc.
Also has a calming effect on the mind.
