Much of the population often has trouble sleeping. Our quality of life is adversely affected when we have difficulties falling asleep. If we manage to sleep well, we get rest both physically and mentally and we get up every morning full of energy. Sometimes when we get into bed, we are unable to disconnect from the day. Some people even suffer from insomnia daily because of the pace of life and stress.
It is because our brain is working constantly and causes us trouble sleeping. This is the reason why it will be easier to fall asleep and sleep well if we can get to bed relaxed and carefree. One of our best friend for feeling relaxed, slowing down and sleep, is music. Older people who, when going to bed, listening to quiet music sleep for more time and manage to improve their quality of sleep.
Older people having difficulties with sleep may begin to notice improvements with their sleeping problems after listening to some soft music before bedtime for about an hour. A study that focused on sleep patterns of sixty people aged between sixty to eighty years was based on applying, half of them consisting therapy music to sleep. Accordingly, the group that had listened to music had a better quality of sleep. Not only that, it also improved their heart rate and breathing grew more slowly.
As it regards how best music helps sleep, classical music or simulating sounds of nature are those that help us relax and therefore we reconcile sleep more easily. These types of music moderate the activity of the sympathetic nervous system and reduce heart and respiratory rate, so that the benefits are both physical and mental. Music helps both adults and children to relax. Therefore, listen to music before going to bed.
