Your environment has changed, so you become hyper aware. It’s the same concept as when you first move out from your parents or get a new job. It’s different from the norm so your mind pays more attention to it’s surroundings as a survival mechanism.

be careful with running the electric fan all night with the windows and doors closed it can kill you.
