I Love Having a Fan On When I Sleep

    White Noise

    I had no idea other people dug this. It's the white noise that soothes me. Although I also like it freezing cold when I go to bed. Covers and a warm friend are all I need.

    I Can't Sleep Without a Fan. and the Sheep Can't Help! : P

    It's really hard for me to fall asleep with out the sound of a fan and the cold breeze hitting my body. I can't sleep when it is to quiet because I start to think alot and by that time I am wide awake. People say that counting sheep or listening to music helps. But when I...

    I always like my room cold

    when I go to sleep. It's nice to relax and curl up in to a bundle of blankets and pillows without gettin overheated:)

    It's right next to my ear

    and it's really loud but I can't sleep without it, I've conditioned myself. Plus it keeps the demons and axe murderers away because i can't hear them :D

    This reminds me of hot summer days of tossing

    and turning, when we didn't have air conditioning. I used to put a cup of water in front of the fan, to make a difference. Lol... Those were the days {singing}

    The cold air from a fan just puts me right to

    sleep 💤💤 and on those nights when I have a lot on my mind, it relaxes me.

    Blissful Sleep

    Best accompanied by the soft whirring of a fan generating a rhythmic white noise and a gentle breeze that lulls you into a deep, good sleep. Some say there's something hypnotic about it, some say there's something soothing about it, but in any case, the effect of it all is, to a...

    The desire to live life the way it should be.

    Reflection begins to unfold, doing things in the exact opposite direction to stay sane and safe!

    And I Thought I Was The Only One

    My husband and I live in an old house. Like most old houses, it's cool downstairs and warm upstairs. Our bedroom, of course, is upstairs. I seem to radiate more heat than the average person. I almost always get hot and sticky after awhile if the fan isn't on, and I sleep nude...

    White Noise

    I used to drive my ex husband crazy. There was no way I would go to bed without a fan blowing on me. Even in the middle of winter I would just pile the blankets on and turn on the fan. And of course I was a blanket hog. I woke up one morning with my husband shivering in the fetal...

    I don't really know why?

    It must be the sound that's comforting, just so I know I'm not alone.

    Unfortunately I need it on to sleep.

    The sound nullifies the constant ringing of tinnitus. I can't do tv or music because it keeps me up.

    This is too awesome to have on here!

    EVEN in Wisconsin, during this crappy cold season, I love and need to have a fan on while sleeping...at times, when I'm sleeping just right, I'll poke my feet out and feel the breeze...for a split second I feel as though I'm somewhere tropical and the wind is that of a natural...

    I didn't always have to have the fan on to fall

    asleep, but I have neighbors that leave their dogs outside barking at all hours of the night. They're such ********! We've asked them time and time again to bring their dogs in. Bad pet owners are my biggest pet peeve! Why even have animals if you're just going to trap them in...

    I can't sleep without a fan on.

    ...I live in Texas and moving cool air is rarity for the most of the year.  It's not enough to have the A/C on, I have to feel the moving air on my face.  A vigorous breeze is all I need!!!
