Did you know that experiments where done to find the most relaxing songs on earth? If you want relaxing music to make you fall asleep fast then these is the music to fall asleep to playlist you need to create/listen to.
According to a study done by MindLab International (and please keep in mind that this is not an academical study so take it with a grain of salt), it seems that a song called “Weightless” from Marconi Union is the most relaxing song ever. Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson says they tested different songs to see which one would help people relax and this one song will relax you 65% more (and reduce anxiety) than any other song. Does this get you ready for sleep and help you fall asleep faster? Well, why not listen to it right now and see how you feel afterwards – please make sure you aren’t at work as you risk falling asleep or at least becoming so relaxed that you’ll soon want a pillow :).
“Weightless,” by Marconi Union
So, how was it? Leave a comment bellow and tell us about your experience. Did you fall asleep during the 8 minutes of the song?
The group that created this song collaborated with sound therapists and wanted to create a relaxing song that follows the heart rate (while slowing it down). This song is also said to reduce blood pressure and lower the level of stress hormone cortisol. We’ve listened to it a few times and it does seem to do all of the above or at the very least make us sleepy. Try it out.
Now, we don’t know exactly how many songs were tested but when it comes to soothing sounds to fall asleep to we think this is among the best ones we’ve heard.
Music to fall asleep to fast – a list of 10 of the most relaxing songs (let us know which ones you like best)
- “We Can Fly,” by Rue du Soleil (Café Del Mar)
- “Canzonetta Sull’aria,” by Mozart (for those looking for classical music to fall asleep to)
- “Someone Like You,” by Adele
- “Pure Shores,” by All Saints
- “Please Don’t Go,” by Barcelona
- “Strawberry Swing,” by Coldplay
- “Watermark,” by Enya
- “Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix),” by DJ Shah
- “Electra,” by Airstream
- “Weightless,” by Marconi Union
From all of these 10 songs, we’ve most enjoyed “Watermark”, “Pure Shores”, “Someone Like You”, “Canzonetta Sull’aria”, and “Weightless”. If you want to learn how to fall asleep fast start off with these 5.
It’s pretty important that you don’t listen to any of them on max sound. Try finding the appropriate mix between Youtube’s sound and your computer’s/phone’s sound. We recommend you go for 35 on both of them.
A 10 hour Bamboo Water Fountain sound which in our opinion is good music to fall asleep to (let us know if it helps you fall asleep fast)
8 hours of Ocean Waves (we’ve also used this before and during sleep – does it work for you as well?)
