#3 Listen to Relaxing Music
When we say relaxing music, it could mean a lot of things. Starting from psychedelic to lo-fi and probably all the way to progressive music. Even classical and neoclassical music can be very helpful when it comes to relaxing your mind.
There are many options and it all depends on what your brain identifies as soothing. A regular pop listener might find acoustic music to be very soothing and calming. Similarly, a metalhead might find Pink Floyd or Porcupine Tree’s music soothing. It all depends on the music taste of a person. Although, most experts agree that sedative music usually works the best.
In a study of 24 adults, it was found that people who listened to sedative music had a better sleep cycle than those who didn’t. In another study, it was found that listening to relaxing music for more than 45 minutes can help you get better sleep. On that note, it is also interesting to note that rain sounds play a significant role in helping you fall asleep.
