Best Music for Sleep and the Clinical Trial that Proves It
A typical adult needs at least 7 hours of sleep a night for optimal health, but today’s steady stream of stimulation from round the clock news cycles, social media and electronic devices can make catching catch those Zzz’s a challenge.
There are many treatments and remedies claiming to help you fall asleep easier, stay asleep longer, and get better quality sleep, but how do you know which one is right for you? Over the counter and prescription sleep medications may have unintended side effects or even a risk of dependency. Diet and lifestyle changes can help, but they aren’t always enough. Some remedies sound more like old wives’ tales and don’t have any evidence to support their claims.
For years, many people have reported listening to music helps them sleep, but what kind of music is the best for sleep? Choosing your favorite song may seem like a good choice, but it can end up distracting you from rest. Wholetones® 2Sleep is clinically-proven to help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and wake up refreshed!
How do you measure sleep?
Like it says above, an average adult should get at least 7 hours of sleep. One way to assess your sleep habits is to measure the amount of time you sleep. But, there are other important things to consider when it comes to sleep. Think about how long you spend lying in bed, waiting to fall asleep. Not all sleep is created equal. You pass through multiple stages of sleep throughout the night, from the light sleep when you first drift off into a deep sleep when dreams occur, and your body is resting and healing.Measuring your own sleep can be as simple as keeping a journal or using a wearable device to gauge your heart rate, breathing rate, and level of activity or movement while sleeping. The sleep study evaluating Wholetones® 2Sleep relied on both user feedback and data from a sleep tracking device.
What effects can music have on sleep?
Ever since you were a baby, you probably enjoyed lullabies before drifting off into dreamland. Soothing music with a slow beat can help people of all ages to rest and relax. Music has been known to slow your heart and breathing rate, and lower blood pressure. These biological changes are also part of the sleep process. In addition to the physical effects listening to music has on your body, following a routine can help your sleep too. Creating a habit of listening to relaxing music before bed will send a message to your brain that it’s time to rest.
Choosing the right music can make your nightly routine simple and satisfying. Wholetones® 2Sleep uses unique frequencies specifically intended to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. This specialized selection of songs doesn’t include any heavy drum beats or bass lines, and is even composed to quietly trail off at the end so you don’t have to worry about a sudden, jarring silence. Listening to Wholetones® 2Sleep music before nighttime sleep is a simple and effective way to improve sleep quality and daytime mood and productivity.
