Free Calming Meditation Music for Sleep and Stress
Calm Radio created an exclusive collection of free calming music for sleep, stress and relaxation. These relaxing music channels use binaural beats to help calm your mind and put your body in a relaxed meditative state. Calming meditation music and sleep music has been noted to directly affect the body and create calming physiological changes, such as lowered heart beat, breathing, reduced stress and anxiety.
When our minds are stressed, overworked, in an emotional state, this is known as being in a Sympathetic State. When we are completely calm and relaxed, our heart rate becomes slower, our breathing slows as it requires less oxygen, this is known as being in a Parasympathetic state. Calm Radio's Binaural Restore relaxing music channel starts with a binaural frequency at 10 beats per second gradually reducing to 1 beat per second, to help you restore your calm parasympathetic state. The track is 4 minutes long. Suggested listening is with headphones or earbuds at lower levels. You can listen to Calm's relaxing binaural music before sleeping, or anytime when you feel the need to relax.
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).
