LISTEN TO SLEEP 

Why should you listen to this music before going to bed? Music can aid sleep by helping you feel relaxed and at ease. With streaming apps and portable speakers, it’s easier than ever to take advantage of the power of music wherever you go. Given music’s accessibility and potential sleep benefits, it might be a good time to try adding it to your nightly routine. We’ve known for years that music has the ability to enhance our moods and help us relax. This is because music affects different areas of the brain, and stimulates feel-good chemicals. SLEEP is created with certain frequencies that are known to trigger the sleep process in the brain, while relaxing the body.
