You may not know it, but noise can cause you to feel annoyed, angry, and stressed out. So try to carve out some time for a little peace and quiet today. Mute the TV during a commercial break. Find a quiet spot at work for a quick break. Use ear plugs at night to drown out any street noise.
Noise can also affect your physical health. It can cause a temporary rise in blood pressure and heart rate in some people. It can also lead to headaches, fatigue, and trouble sleeping.
