With the increased levels of stress amongst people of different kinds, many have found listening to music as one way to relax or find sleep at night. Not every song played on your radio will help you relax, but there are specific songs designed to help you achieve a better time at night. It could be just a little chorus or verse specially made for the intended purpose or even the whole song. This music can differ between genres, including; Hip Hop, pop music, rock, and reggae.
Musical Tracks that will help you sleep
Sleep is one of the essential activities in someone’s life. Without sleep, you might not enjoy the next day as you should have. Earlier studies have proved that sleep helps to release dopamine, a hormone that can boost your mood. Creating a perfect atmosphere for rest, all through listening to music, can be easy to achieve.
With the introduction of accessible online streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple music, finding the perfect song to help you fall asleep will not be hard. To start with, ASMR icon Billie Eilish’s “When the party’s over” and “Everything I wanted” should open up your playlist if you ever ask yourself a question of which songs could help you sleep. Billie’s ambient approach combines found sound with her hush voice that turns into music you will embrace. The gentle whispers she uses in her lyrics will send you deep into relaxation and stabilize your heart rate. Go ahead and give it a try!
Other musical tracks and artists that I would recommend for someone that is on a quest for better sleep are; J-pop artist Takako Minekawa, “All of Me” by John Legend, “Changes” by XXXTENTACION, and “Terrors In My Head” by deadmau5. The mutual behavior of all these songs is that the sound will create a tingling sensation on the crown of your head. This is known as a trigger. If you ever fail to sleep after a long and stressful day or have any other reason why you can’t find sleep at night, exploring ASMR music might help you find what you are looking for.
You might not notice, but even celebrities experience ASMR sometimes. Years back, female actress Jennifer Love Hewitt on Leno explained the weird fact that she loves it when clerks are slowly handling her items. She described her feeling by theatrically shivering abit, saying “aah,” and rolling her eyes back. At that moment, it was easy to identify that she has ASMR. Of course, she never mentioned ASMR, but her narration was a typical example of a trigger. Additionally, a famous voice actor and former lead writer of Animation at Rooster Teeth, Miles Luna, has also started a couple of times while hosting a popular podcast that he keeps up with ASMR. Once you have that single piece of music that triggers you, you will enjoy it and when you like sounds or a song it will uplift you and help shift your mood so music can be a great way to help you feel something more.
