Suck it up and start meditating
The benefits of meditation are pretty well established, so if you're struggling with exhaustion and nothing has worked, it might be time to get on board with it. Among meditation's many useful qualities is its ability to help you sleep. And you don't even need to own a robe or attend meetings where you're required to chant! In fact, if you're looking for the big guns when nothing else has worked, meditation might be your best bet, as it seems to outperform other conventional strategies for improving sleep.

While there’s not much you can do to silence some of it, that shouldn’t mean sacrificing sleep quality. One solution: invest in a white noise or sound machine to drown out some of the racket, suggests Malhotra. Or just add earplugs.
