Achieving calm

I wasn't sure where else to put this, so here goes. I have been on a spiritual journey for the past several years, and it has made me aware of some unwelcome things around me. I meditate a lot, however, I am often interrupted by cars/motorcycles/trucks/etc, speeding down my street. I'm not here to complain about that, I am here to see if anyone had any advice on how to deaden the noise. Any ideas? I need my sanctuary back.

There are various types of meditation sounds on youtube, including white noise sounds that are nice to hear with ear buds ( good quality ear buds/head phones) they do help cancel outside noises. I personally like hearing some kind of sound If I am not outdoors. Even the rhythm of the Ocean waves puts me in a comfortable vibration.

Ear plugs are good too.

hippyman - I would wear headphones to block the external noises. Maybe even listen to a tape of binaural beats, chanting or guided meditation.

I don't like lots of noise either... but still it seems a truism that you hear what you need to hear...

I think I may have found a solution, and I recommend it to anyone who has a streaming service. I have the NatureVision channel on my Roku, and that does wonders for blocking out background noise. Half hour to hour long time-lapsed nature films with no naration, just soothing music, and the views aren't bad either.
