Having trouble sleeping? Well according to a recent study published in the journal “PLOS ONE,” music may be just what you need to get a better night’s sleep! The research was conducted at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom.
Researchers found that music stimulates sleep and blocks any internal or external stimulus that would disrupt sleep. “The study offers a new understanding into the complex motivations that drive people to reach for music as a sleep aid and the reasons why so many find it effective,” said Tabitha Trahan one of the study’s researchers.
The study was conducted on 651 adults. The results showed that 62% used music to help them sleep. Studies also show that music has many promising neurological and physiological effects that may be useful in the fight against sleep loss. Sounds good to me! Put on some tunes and let’s go to sleep!
