Can Music Actually Improve the Way You Sleep?


The right kind of music can actually help you get to sleep at night.

Some people just can’t sleep in complete silence. Whether you need the comforting sound of a running box fan or the company of your favorite tunes, it’s true that a lot of people tend to have some kind of sound going on while they get their rest. Not all music is beneficial to falling to sleep, however, so it’s important that you find the right music for you. Below, we’re going to look at some ways you can incorporate music into your nightly routine so you can get better sleep.

Treating Insomnia

There are studies out there that indicate some who suffer from insomnia-related symptoms are better able to fall asleep when listening to music. This includes studies that show that classical music can be a good treatment for patients who are struggling with insomnia. In some cases, people who suffer from other chronic sleep disorders have also reported success. Of course, getting to sleep is a highly personal thing, so it’s all about finding what works for you.

Using Classical Music

Typically, most recommend using calming and soothing music—this includes instrumental music typically. Genres like classical music, post-rock, or some electronica can be ideal for getting to rest. There’s a wealth of resources out there for finding music specifically for this purpose, too. YouTube and Spotify, as examples, are stocked with countless user-created playlists that are meant to curate a good night of rest. It’s all about finding what is best for you.

How to Safely Listen to Music at Night

If you’re not careful, you can actually damage your ears by listening to music the wrong way at night. For example, wearing earbuds at night can lead to wax build up or damage the skin of your ear. This isn’t to mention that you won’t be able to hear anything else, so in the event that there is a fire alarm or some kind of emergency, you may not even realize. There are headphones out there designed specifically for sleeping, so be sure to look into those if you’re deadset on headphones. Other options include using a computer, tablet, or phone to pump your wonderful music into your sleeping space all night long.
