Is there a worse feeling in the world than the one of rising panic as you endlessly toss and turn, thinking of all the ways that the following day will be ruined?

Being unable to fall asleep at night is something most of us will experience at some point in our lives, and it can quickly turn the peaceful and relaxing process of drifting away at night into something that is to be utterly dreaded.

There are countless methods and advice out there to help with you falling asleep, but to be completely honest, much of it is simply impractical or difficult to stick with.

While there’s little doubt that the logic and science behind strategies such as going to sleep and getting up at the same time each day are sound, many people will simply find it nigh on impossible to stick to such a rigid routine. Especially if you enjoy one of life’s greatest gifts, a Sunday morning lie in!

Our bodies do adhere to circadian rhythms, and if you can do it, we would always recommend giving changes like the above a go. We know that many people – we’re looking at you parents – simply can’t stick to such inflexible routines, however.

So we set about creating a piece of music that was designed to help our listeners and subscribers get to sleep fast and easily, without having to completely rearrange their routines and lives.

Having tried everything from podcasts to white noise and rain simulators, we’re convinced that this song is the best background music to help you fall asleep fast.

The song uses science in its BPM and rhythms to help soothe and relax you. The magic also lies in the fact that the music is just interesting enough to occupy your mind, while being gentle and relaxing enough to allow your focus to drift away, and for sleep to take hold.

It’s around 20 minutes long, and fades away peacefully, meaning you can listen to it without disturbing a partner.

It really works – give it a try tonight and let us know what you think.
