Not enough sleep doesn’t just make you cranky, it can be damaging to your overall health. And unfortunately, while you might be exhausted and want to sleep, you might need to take a few minutes to relax and empty your mind so that you’re not stressing about trying to fall asleep.
It is estimated that 1 in 3 people have challenges falling asleep or staying asleep every night. Fortunately, however, there are a few science-backed ways to make falling asleep less frustrating. One of them? A mind-relaxing music playlist. A 2015 study from the Cochrane Developmental, Psychosocial and Learning Problems Group found that music can improve sleep quality for adults with symptoms of insomnia. And yet another study found that listening to music (particularly classical music) at bedtime was linked to better sleep quality in students. Plus, unlike sleeping pills that can leave you drowsy long after your alarm clock has gone off, music doesn’t have any side effects.
