Does your mind race when it’s time for bed? SleepWell 101

Sometimes we need a little assistance relaxing to help us drift off to sleep. One of the best ways we’ve found is to use an audio distraction and binaural beats is one of them.

What are the Best Binaural Beats for Sleep & Insomnia?

  • Beta (13 – 40 Hz) – Active, alert and focused.
  • Alpha (8 -12 Hz) – Relaxed, calm and creative.
  • Theta (4 – 8 Hz) – drowsy, light sleep and dreams.
  • Delta (less than 4 Hz) – Deep sleep.

 Can Binaural Help You Sleep?

The chances are good. Binaural beats may offer better sleep and relaxation by lowering brainwave frequency. A small study found that exposure to binaural beats is associated with changes to three hormones important to sleep and well-being: DHEA, Cortisol, and Melatonin.

Have you heard of binaural beats? It’s a technique that’s been around for a while, but recently it is getting a lot of attention for its ability to lower stress and improve sleep, as well as to improve cognitive performance.

Binaural beats are a technique of combining two slightly different sound frequencies to create the perception of a single new frequency tone.

The theory is that when exposed to two different frequencies at the same time, one in each ear, the brain actually perceives a single tone that is the difference between the two separate frequencies. Your brain, in a sense, “tunes” to this new frequency.

You listen to binaural beats using headphones. In each ear, you receive sound at a slightly different frequency (often accompanied by some relaxing background sounds).

  • Research suggests that binaural beats can help working memory and long-term memory, and also strengthen connections among networks within the brain.
  • Attention may also be improved by using binaural beats. Studies have shown that binaural beats may affect levels of dopamine, a hormone that plays a broad role in cognition and a particular role in creative thinking.
