Do you find it hard to sleep for more than one to two hours? You’ve made the right stop. Numerous research has revealed that there are certain kinds of songs that can help you sleep deep. The top options are classical or slow music.
Classic or instrumental music helps to slow the pulse and reduce stress hormones levels. Relaxing music on the other hand mimics your sleepy state and helps slow down the heart rate and breathing, and reduces blood pressure. All these lead to certain psychological changes that can make falling and staying asleep easier than usual. Besides, music has these soothing effects that can ease anxiety and stress, and tune out disturbing thoughts.
So, if you find it hard to fall asleep or stay asleep, listening to songs that can relax your mind can help tune your body to sleep mode.
Water sounds and ocean waves
Listening to a steady or runny stream of water or a light patter of rain is so relaxing. Water sounds with a gentle and gradual flow or pattern can counter abrupt noises that can make you wake up easily. Ocean waves on the other hand feature rhythmic crashing of water onto rock or sand. It is calming and creates a state of focus, relaxation, and peace of mind.
Also, there are music apps with songs that have soothing noises of the woods and the wilderness. You should also opt for songs with a very slow rhythm between 60 and 80 beats in a minute.
