(HealthDay News) -- When you want a bit of help to nod off, some soft background noise may be just what you need.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests:

  • Try white noise, which combines different sounds at different frequencies. You can use a white noise app on your smart phone or buy a white noise machine (sometimes called a sound conditioner).
  • Consider the soothing sounds of nature, from raindrops to rolling ocean waves. Avoid sounds that may be jarring.
  • Turn on soft music, particularly light jazz, classical, Gregorian chants or folk music. Avoid loud music or with lyrics that may distract you.
  • If you find human voices soothing, try apps that play a soothing voice repeating nonsensical phrases.
