Am I the only one who misses falling asleep and waking up to the ticking of a wall clock?

It used to have an audible soothing effect of sorts that I don't get by waking up and looking at my phone to check the time.

Anyone want to buy me a clock for Christmas? Laughing

Hi, I like the noise of either the ocean waves or a fan.



Good Listening

Me too!

I like the sound of my grandfather clock, but not so much while sleeping. For sleeping, I like the sound of a fan.

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.

If I turn a fan on before I go to sleep, I'll be up all night going to the bathroom. Laughing

I should buy one of those nightstand, old-fashioned type alarm clocks. I do kind of miss that.

You're not the only one Airforce. I have one, but I can barely hear it. It's nice, and it beats the glare of the cell phone at 3 in the morning when I want to check the time.

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.

Some people find it soothing by comparison to the technical nature of a cell phone.

Ever heard the saying "There's an app for that"? I'm off to see if there is an app for this.

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! Laughing

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.
