Music is a powerful tool that’s known to have a significant impact on your mood. When you’re going for a run or doing household chores, you’re likely to play fast-paced, lively music that will keep your energy levels up. Likewise, listening to soothing, slow music at bedtime is an effective sleep aid that helps you to wind down after a long day.
If you’re having trouble falling asleep at night, playing your favourite relaxing songs might just be the solution to help you catch some much-needed Z’s. Check out Spotify playlist where we have curated a selection of songs to help boost your serotonin levels, relax and fall asleep faster.
With that said, read on below to learn the 4 benefits of listening to music when it’s time for bed!
1. Boosts sleep quality
So long as you’re choosing songs that will relax and put you in a good mood, listening to music can help you get better quality rest throughout the night. Just like how babies and children fall asleep to lullabies, your favourite songs can soothe you into a deep sleep.
If listening to music becomes part of your bedtime routine, the positive effects on your sleep quality will be amplified. Apart from the soothing effects of the melody, getting used to the routine of playing songs before bed will signal your body that it’s time to sleep.
2. Enhances relaxation
Listening to slow, soothing songs can help to drift you into a state of relaxation as you hit the hay. Ideally, you should go for songs that have a rhythm of 60 to 80 beats per minute. This range closely matches your resting heart rate and soothes you on a biological level – so there’s science to back it up!
There are a variety of sleep playlists available on Spotify that will get you into a state of Zen and relaxation. If you’re looking for a playlist to chill out to, check out “Never Gonna Leave This Bed” playlist – perfect for lounging during the weekends or even staying in on rainy days!
Fluff up your pillows, get cosy and chill on our Chiro Care Chiropedic Mattress! With its Double Offset LFK Spring that provides optimum support for back-related problems, and Firm-Tex Natural Fibre to promote better airflow and temperature regulation, you can expect more enjoyable periods of rest with increased comfort. This playlist’s compilation of acoustic songs will make you feel so relaxed – you won’t want to leave your Chiro Care bed either!
3. Helps you fall asleep faster
By the end of the day, you’ve probably got a million thoughts racing through your mind. Stress from work, bills and your unfinished to-do list can keep you up at night. Playing some background tunes can help to take your mind off your racing thoughts and give your brain something else to focus on.
For some throwback hits that will calm you down, be sure to check out our “Fall Asleep Into The 80s” playlist! With this set of classic tunes, relieve your stress and doze off on our Spinal Optima mattress into the likes of Prince, Tom Petty and Lionel Richie. Featuring Latex Pillow Top for extra comfort, this mattress also has high-density foam encasement that ensures a firm seating edge to reduce the likelihood of sagging borders and extend the sleep surface by up to 20% so you’ll have more space to snooze comfortably.
4. Wakes you up feeling more refreshed
In addition to helping you relax at bedtime, listening to music when you wake up will also keep you feeling more refreshed and alert to tackle the day ahead! Your favourite songs stimulate the ‘feel-good’ chemical in our brain, serotonin. People who suffer from depression are deficient in serotonin and often wake up feeling tired and groggy. As such, it makes sense to do what you can to naturally boost your serotonin.
Put on a lively playlist on your speakers and blast your favourite songs to trigger your happy chemicals! It’ll help you to feel revitalised after a good, relaxing night’s sleep. For some feel-good tunes, check out our “Songs to Wake Up to” playlist to get you ready for the day ahead!
