You will make progress if you Stop Sweating the Small Stuff...and it's ALL Small Stuff.
I had a clock that ticked so loud it drove me crazy and kept me awake. That clock is now sitting on a shelf at the Goodwill Store. lol
What I don't understand is: Why even invent a clock that ticks so loudly? Silence is golden was meant for a reason...
I had a ticking clock that I would put a pillow over while I slept. :)
It was fine as long as it was in another room. lol
Good. But can you hear it before you drift off to sleep?
Being within earshot of a tap dripping can be a deal-breaker for some people.
I put cloth or sponges under my tap...I mean...even then I still have to exercise my ability to Not Sweat the Small Stuff.
If i sweated everything i would be broken for sure
Oh I could because once I finally do sleep I am so exhausted a freight train could come through the house & I wouldn't notice.
If i was in a prison camp...otherwise i would do something about it..
Rain, wind, traffic, people going in and out of the house, etc.
