I’m a big fan of ear plugs. I use them while working, reading, and sleeping. When I wear them, I find it takes very little effort to concentrate on what I’m doing. Using ear plugs while sleeping helps me fall asleep faster, and allows me to get a full night’s rest while almost never waking up in the middle of the night.
Being a big fan, I’m always on the lookout for better ear plugs, such as plugs that block out more sound, are more comfortable, or even more portable. Part of my search lead me to an article (2005) by which gives a great overview of the different types of ear plugs available, and a rating as to how effective they are in comparison to each other.
If you’ve ever wanted to increase your concentration at work or at home, or have had trouble getting a full night’s sleep, you should read the article above. A simple pair of ear plugs could change your life!
