I can't do ticking clocks. My eyes under the lids start going back and forth like the Felix the cat type clock. The best sleep aid I ever had was a large apartment cooling tower that was loud when the fans came on. But it lulled me to sleep like nothing else ever has. Fans though help me considerably.
Wow, I hate the tick, tick, tick sound and have been known to hide clocks that make noise. I had no idea that some people find it soothing. I prefer to sleep in total silence, but it rarely works out that way.
I love the sound of a ticking clock. My family has a huge grandfather clock that my dad built and it has been a constant sound in my life ever since I was a kid.
Now that I have my own apartment, I miss the sound of that grandfather clock. The only thing I don't miss are the chimes every quarter hour, which always seem to go off right when I'm starting a phone call!
I cannot sleep without the sound of a fan. If we lose power in the night, I wake right up because the fan goes off. I sleep with it on 365 days of the year. I also enjoy the sound of a ticking clock. We still have one in our kitchen. It soothes me when I'm upset.
