Mental Health & Noise
Mental Health and Noise
Awareness of mental health issues has never been higher than it is today. The impact of mental health problems is felt in all aspects of life, from sleeping patterns, personal relationships to work and social life.
A lack of sleep is a leading factor in deteriorating mental health, with only two or three days of insufficient sleep drastically reducing concentration levels and decision making abilities, which can lead to dangerous driving and make you more likely to have accidents.
A leading cause of lack of sleep is noisy neighbours. Noisy neighbours can not only keep you awake at night, but a constant abuse of noise through the day and when your relaxing creates lots of stress which can be directly linked to mental health problems.
It is not only noisy neighbours that can cause unwanted noise to effect your life at home. Many people who live next to busy roads, highways or train lines can also be effected by noise intrusion causing similar issues.
Sound level is measured in Decibels (dB). A dB is the unit used to measure the intensity of sound. A change of 5 – 10 dB will, to the human ear, be quite significant. JCW have the products to help in achieving this.
It is not only at home that noise distraction can lead to a stressful environment. The office is a hive of activity at times with people hustling and bustling, rushing around to get things done.
