Facing issues getting enough sleep and winding down after a long day? Your current go-to strategy may not be cutting it anymore. Discover sleep sounds here!

While country music is what we love, sometimes the instrumentation and lyrics get distracting when the goal is to chill out and fall asleep. Whether you’re hitting the sack after a long shift at work or trying to relax after a heart-pounding concert, Relaxing Digital has your back.

Sleep sounds playlists are growing in popularity as more people struggle to get the recommended minimum of 7 hours of sleep per night. Sound familiar? Achieving consistent quality sleep is one of the major components in maintaining a person’s physical and mental health. Sleep-related issues such as insomnia, sleep deprivation, and frequent restlessness can negatively impact a person’s hormone levels, mood, blood pressure, heart health, and body weight.

We’re sleep deprived and running on fumes, y’all. Fortunately, recent technological advancements have freed us from relying on traditional white noise machines and have given us more options. Specially curated playlists and sleep albums have become an accessible solution for many seeking better quality rest.

A helpful series of five sleep-promoting playlists were recently created by Endel, a sound technology that generates real-time personalized soundscapes to enhance sleep, relaxation, and focus. Endel’s core algorithm is based on circadian rhythms, pentatonic scale, and sound masking. The globally available iOS app was created by Berlin-based team of artists, developers, and scientists. These playlists feature scientifically proven and expertly crafted sleep sounds to help you enjoy the benefits of restorative slumber.

Multiple scientific studies indicate that certain types of music and sounds have the power to help lull us into a deep sleep. Sounds inspired by nature, devoid of instrumentation or human vocals, have been shown to be equally or even more effective than traditionally composed melodies.

Enjoy higher-quality sleep and an easier time getting relaxed by utilizing these playlists which represent the perfect balance between technology, engineering, and the influence of nature. Leave listening to Carrie, Blake, Jason, Miranda, and Luke for when you’re ready to be wide awake!
