    I don't run a fan per se.

    I run a HEPA filter. It basically serves as a white noise generator. I got into running a fan when I was living in a dorm in college. It was the ONLY way I could sleep. I had that noisy thing right next to my head. Now, I'm so accustomed to it, I can't do with out it. Now...

    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...

    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.

    I'm not sure if I can sleep without one.

    It's become this strange lullaby that HAS to be sung as I fall asleep.

    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

    Can't sleep without one on.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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}

    I can't sleep without a fan on.

    I don't need to feel the air. I just need the sound.

    I don't really know why?

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

    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...
