Have you ever lived in a place with noisy neighbours? It can be quite annoying when you’re trying to enjoy the peace and quiet of your own home, right? In today’s Simplified Speech episode, which was requested by a listener, Andrew and Suzanne talk about their experiences with their own pesky, noisy neighbours.

Fun facts

Studies on noise pollution have shown a significant link between loud, unwanted noise and stress levels. People who are subjected to unwanted noises on a regular basis are more likely to have undue stress, increased blood pressure, and eventual cardiovascular problems. Proper rest and relaxation are vital for a healthy body.
