This Music Is Designed To Help You Relax And Sleep

The right kind of music can soothe us into a perfect state of relaxation. Add this scientifically based, hour-long video to your nighttime playlist to get more sleep.

The music is based on research done by psychologist Dave Elliot of the University of Cumbria. He found that the most relaxing music, according to volunteers in anxiety studies, had these features: 90 beats per minute, a 4/4 beat, piano and strings, and narrow note sequences where the notes moved from low to high.

So In 59 Seconds’ Richard Wiseman teamed up with a composer to create the music above using these principles. It might not be for everyone, but it’s definitely worth a listen if you have a hard time falling asleep.
