8 Hour Deep Sleep features a variety of our best nature recordings and music. You will experience crashing ocean waves of the Juan De Fuca Trail, majestic loons from Narrow Lake, AB and an assortment of other rain, creek, bird, and bug sounds.
If you don’t typically sleep for a full 8 hours, then have no fear. Please know that we also have a 9 Hour Sleep Playlist, 6 Hour Sleep Playlist and 1 Hour Sleep Playlist for those of you who would prefer a different length.
Why is Bedtime Music Beneficial?
Our 8 Hour Deep Sleep playlist is perfect for bedtime reading or chilling as well. You can start the playlist beforehand and let the pleasant sounds of nature and ambient music soak into your subconscious while you get sleepy. As any of our long term readers already know, nature sounds and ambient music are both known to reduce stress levels and aid in relaxation. The mixing of the two makes for the perfect sleep aid.
When your body is stressed, cortisol is produced. Cortisol and stress drive the fight or flight response. Both of these responses are not ideal for sleep as they are biological adaptations to ensure us humans are ready to tackle the dangers that lie ahead. Although heroic sounding, these feelings are not welcome when trying to get to sleep. Luckily, people who listen to the sounds of nature are able to reduce their heart rate, lower muscle tension and experience overall reduced levels of stress. All of this adds up to a deeper and more restful sleep.
In addition to the sleep benefits of nature sounds, the ambient music mixed into our albums contributes as well. With a BPM (beats per minute) of 60-68, our albums intentionally play at about the same rate as the human adult heart rate when asleep. This further aids the listener to calm down.
With all that said, we encourage you to try out our 8 Hour Deep Sleep playlist tonight. With any luck, you will feel the calming effects of the nature sounds and music while you drift off into a deep slumber. In the morning, make sure to leave us a comment in our comments section about how great your sleep was ;)
