The Many Health and Sleep Benefits of Music
Music is an incredible tool for emotional health, daily performance, and sleep.
Music is a regular fixture in my daily life. I listen to music to keep me motivated while I exercise, to relax and distract me when I travel, and for a quick creativity boost when I’m writing. My family—especially my kids—have music playing around the house all the time. I also use relaxing music to unwind before bed.
Music is an incredibly therapeutic tool for emotional health, daily performance, and sleep. It has been used as a healing therapy for most of human history. Ancient Arabic cultures had musicians working alongside physicians. The Greeks used music to treat mental illness. After WWII, musicians were brought to U.S. hospitals to aid the healing of soldiers’ physical and emotional trauma.
How music affects the mind and body
Music activates many parts of the brain, including the hippocampus, which processes memories.)
Music can also stimulate the mind and the body.
The key is choosing the right music for the time of day or night, and the desired effects. (More on this in a minute.) First, let’s look at what science must tell us about how music can enhance sleep.
The benefits of music for sleep Relaxing music triggers changes to the body that in many ways mimic a sleep state. Music also has a soothing effect on our emotional brain, easing stress and anxiety.
If you’re listening to music that relaxes you before bed, you’re essentially helping to “tune” your body to sleep mode, both physically and psychologically.
So, it’s no surprise that scientific research has measured several benefits that music can have on sleep.
Several studies show listening to music at bedtime improves sleep quality, including in young adults, older adults, and in children.
There’s also a body of evidence showing that listening to music before bed can help improve sleep quality for adults with insomnia.
Music improves sleep efficiency
Research shows that a pre-bedtime music listening session can help you fall asleep more quickly.
The influence of music over mood and stress helps sleep, too
Depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders frequently go together with sleep problems, including insomnia.
When we find ways to relieve stress and improve mood, sleep almost always improves.
Music, with its ability to activate and influence the emotional and memory centers of our brain, can help.
Research further shows how music can be effective in relieving the symptoms of depression and other mood disorders.
It can improve both depression and sleep in people with post-traumatic stress disorder, according to recent research.
Want to start using music as part of your nightly routine?
Here are my tips for how to do it well:
Slow beats are best. Remember, the body and brain are highly responsive to music, including its rhythm and tempo. To move your body into relaxation and sleep mode, use songs that have a rhythm of about 60-80 beats per minute. Your heart rate will gradually adjust to match these slower beats, and your breathing will slow, putting you closer to a sleeping state.
Whatever makes you feel calm, soothed, relaxed, and puts your body and mind in a restful mode is the right choice for you.
If you need music to help you fall asleep and suffer regularly with insomnia, use this sleeping music as soothing relaxation, and experience the benefits of deep sleep music and relaxing sleep music.
