Sleeping Music: 100 Songs To Fall Asleep And Dream

Songs To Fall Asleep And Dream

The right dose of sleep keeps us fit and healthy. But sometimes, there are nights when falling asleep becomes torture. Getting to rest in bed is a significant struggle for many.

It’s only in bed that many people review their day or think about the million things they still have to do the next day.

Besides countless methods of falling asleep that are supposed to help you enter the realm of dreams more easily, one way is criminally neglected: music. Music can trigger very different feelings and moods in us, and the right songs can make us euphoric, thoughtful, and calming.

Several studies also prove: Music can have a calming and sleep-inducing effect.

Songs with a calm melody and a pleasant singing voice are particularly well suited to help us fall asleep on a challenging and nerve-racking day. Such songs cause our heart and breathing rate to decrease in the human body, and the brain also slowly begins to settle into a relaxed state through this effect.

Our playlist contains 100 songs that are especially good for falling asleep. We have chosen a soothing mix of well-known and lesser-known melodies that will help you reach dreamland faster.

(A Spotify playlist can be found at the end of the article.)
