Binaural Sleep Music and Calm Music for Relaxation
Calm Radio has launched a new binaural sleep music channel to help you calm down.
Remove Stress is a relaxing music channel that is 5 minutes and begins with a binaural frequency 8 pulses per second then reduces to less than 1 beat per second to help you stay relaxed.
Often when we are preparing for sleep, we accumulate many unprocessed thoughts and worries from the previous 16 hours that can keep our minds from winding down.
During the day, we mostly operate in a Sympathetic state (fight or flight). Our hearts work harder and our breathing is faster. At night before bed, ideally, we should be in a calmer Parasympathetic state (rest and digest).
Calm Radio's calming music channel Remove Stress was composed specifically for sleep and can help quiet your busy mind and relax you as you drift off.
When listening to sleep music with binaural beats, it is recommended to use headphones for optimal effect, although not required, and to listen at low volume.
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).
Binaural beats are beneficial for meditation, as calm music for sleep and as relaxing music.
