I Love Having a Fan On When I Sleep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,261 People

    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'd Like To Thank My Fan!

    All my adult life, I can not sleep without the soft whirring & gentle breeze on my face as I am lulled to sleep. Now, my husband& kids do the same. Even when I travel, I bring a small, but powerful fan with me. Beats taking a sleeping pill.

    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

    I Can't Sleep Without the Noise.

    I've had "white noise" in the background while I slept ever since I was very very young. We've had air cleaners, humidifiers... I can't sleep without some kind of garbling sound in the background or it's too quiet. It drives me nuts. Right now in my room I actually have...

    Blow Me

    I sleep with the ceiling fan and my other fan on. Rather it's Cold or hot I don't care. I like the sound of it as it lulls me to sleep. The air blowing right in my face.

    I Want My Fan & Tv

    I have the fan on all day long.  I love the movement of air and the sound of the fan is soothing to sleep. I'm also in the habit of needing Fox News to fall asleep. But I need that sleep timer for 1 hr.  Otherwise the TV will wake me up during the night.

    I think it's a problem.

    I take a fan with me on road trips just in case the hotel doesn't have one; it has to be on full blast, right in my face or I can't sleep. I suffered three months through Marine Corps boot camp and several deployments where there wasn't a fan to be found. It felt like hell...

    I don't really know why?

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

    Warm Under the Blankets, Cool On My Face

    I really need a fan to be able to sleep, or have an open window. I hate hot and my body temp always goes up at bedtime or after showers. I sleep so peacefully burrowed under my warm blankets and have cool air blowing on my face, it helps me breath better or something. I can't...

    I Love Having A Fan On Me When I Sleep Also

    I have always loved the feel of a cool breeze blowing on me as I sleep, I don't know why but it feels really good for me. I'm new to all of this so not really sure what to do, but I thought I would share that about the fan, lol.

    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 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.

    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...

    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...
