Try different strategies when trying to go to sleep with tinnitus. Make sure the room you are sleeping in is completely dark. When you lie down, try to think of relaxing things, such as ocean waves or relaxing on a beach after sundown. Keeping your mind occupied with relaxing thoughts will help you fall asleep fast.
One way to prevent tinnitus from disrupting your sleep, is to use white noise machines or fans to drown out the tinnitus sounds. Try out different white noises to see which one is the most effective and relaxing for you. White noise can help distract you from tinnitus noises long enough to help you fall asleep.
