Calming Sleep Music to Help You Sleep
Calm Radio’s Binaural Sleep Music Series has just launched. The sleep music channels in this series were composed with the science of binaural beats, based on the claim of the ability of certain sound frequencies to promote a relaxed state, calmer breathing and lowered heart rate.
Blue Hue is a new addition to the Binaural Sleep Music Series, composed by Calm Radio’s founder Eric Harry. The track starts with a 1.5 minute decelerating frequency beat specifically designed to help slow your breathing and heart rate prior to your sleep relaxation phase. As you continue listening, let your mind melt into the calming sleep sounds, feel as your body deeply relaxes, and drift off into a rejuvenating sleep.
Binaural sleep music has maximum benefits when listened to using headphones on low volume as you prepare for sleep, letting the sounds calm your mind and guide you into a relaxing Delta wave state. Blue Hue is available in full-length 2:28 hours for Calm Radio members and 8 minutes for free listeners.
What are binaural beats?
Brainwaves are divided into four categories: Delta waves (deep sleep), Theta waves (somnolence and reduced consciousness), Alpha waves (physical and mental relaxation), and Beta waves (being agitated or tense). Listening with binaural beats can help our left and right brainwaves align, promoting more restful sleep and a more relaxed state.
Binaural beats use sub-hearing frequencies that pulse slowly in a bottom layer of the music track. For instance, 0.1 to 4 Hertz (Delta), 4 to 7 hertz (Theta), 7 to 13 hertz (Alpha) and 13 to 30 hertz (Beta).
