We all know how important it is to get a good night’s rest, but unfortunately, that’s not always possible. We are our own worst enemies when it comes to sleeping, as being “stuck” in your head can be a real thing. That could be anxiety, wandering thoughts, or simply thinking about tasks you need to do the next day or later in the week. That, or dead silence during the night could just bother you. White noise doesn’t resolve every one of those issues, but stress, loud street noises or tinnitus are just a few issues it can help to solve. So here are a list of of the best white noise apps for your iPhone, to hopefully give you some much needed rest tonight.
