Binaural Beats for Sleeping!

Breaking Fast asked:

Hahaha love the minion banana song! Great songs! Do you think songs with no singing might work better/relaxing type of music?

(In response to “Music that will guarantee a snooze in seconds!”)

Interestingly, if any of you really want to sleep, an actual catagory of music called “binaural beats” exist. Where the frequency of the stereo audio is so close to each other that they help the brain to relax. It is even used as medicine!

Here is one example of a binaural beat. If you want to listen to more, there are related videos in youtube. Just search “binaural beats”!

 

Sleeptober and Daylight Savings!

Screen shot 2013-10-03 at 12.14.43 AM

We are launching Sleeptober! Throughout this month, we are taking advantage of Sleep Awareness Week (6th – 12th October 2013) by the Sleep Health Foundation and raising awareness of students and your sleep. We always put Sleep last and a little birdy told us that Sleep is not too happy about that. Sleep wants our attention and wants to be the first to be picked for a game. C’mon guys, give Sleep a chance!

 

Daylight savings begins 6 October at 2am! That’s this Sunday! Move your clocks FORWARD for an extra hour of daylight!

Remember though, like jet lag to a change in time zones when travelling, our bodies also need adjusting to during daylight savings, a sort of “daylight ag” if you will.

How to prepare?

Go to bed an hour earlier. Avoid sugary, caffeinated drinks beforehand and you could even get in a few exercise routines in during the day so you are tired and will easily fall asleep at this earlier time.

 

Good luck and don’t forget to wind your clocks forward!
