Ha! I deal with this also. I did choose a neighborhood that is a little quieter. I also play music to help me fall asleep, or during the day if people are being noisy. I'm a big fan of meditation, so perhaps you could focus on one noise that is bothering you (the neighbors) and focus on slowing your breath and calming yourself while thinking about that nuisance. Also, if there are gunshots in your area, make sure you are safe and feel safe. Do you have the local non-emergency police number easily accessible? Do you have friends who you could stay with if here is another scary encounter? Being safe and prepared will also put your mind at ease!
Good luck with your goals,
