Top Music Choices to Improve Your Quality of Sleep

Posted by Bedphones on

The right type of music can help you sleep. The question is, what is that music type? 

At Bedphones, we recommend that you find music that is not over stimulating. Your sleep music should calm your mind. Bedphones recommends the following three styles for a great night sleep:

Nature Sounds:

Ocean waves, thunderstorms, or rain forest sounds can all be pleasant to sleep to. Natural noises include slight fluctuations in amplitude and frequency. This means that we are not able to predict a pattern. When we listen to music with lyrics, we hear a pattern which can be disruptive. Nature sound’s temporal modulations prevent our brains from becoming agitated from repetition.

Is there One Perfect Song that Will Put You to Sleep?

According to the British Academy of Sound Therapy, there is one perfect song for a great night’s sleep. The institution collaborated with the Marconi Union to produce the most relaxing song ever, “Weightlessness”.

Lyz Cooper, founder of the British Academy of Sound Therapy  explains how they used scientific theory to create the relaxing effect. The rhythm of “Weightlessness” synchronizes with your heart rate, starting at 60 bpm and lowering to 50 bpm.

The song’s length is important as well. Your body requires five minutes to sync to the song, therefore the song is eight minutes long. The length ensures that your blood pressure has the opportunity to drop.

“Weightlessness” relies on harmonic intervals –or gaps between notes to create the feeling of euphoria and comfort. There are no repeated melodies; therefore your brain is never predicting what comes next. “Weightlessness” consists of chimes, Buddhist chants, and low-whooshing sounds.

“Weightlessness” is the song that many restless sleepers have been looking for. Download. Listen to “Weightlessness” on your Bedphones as you fall asleep at night. You can find Weightlessness at the recording below:

Over  40 million Americans live with sleep disorders and 20 million have trouble sleeping. For your moments of unrest, it is important to listen to sleep inducing music on your Bedphones. We recommend trying nature sounds, white noise, classical music, or “Weightlessness” if you are looking for music to help you sleep. Each has proven effects to put the mind at ease.
