While music is what we love, sometimes the instrumentation and lyrics get distracting when the goal is to chill out and fall asleep. Whether you’re hitting the pillow after a long day at school, a shift at work, or trying to relax after a heart-pounding concert— Relaxing Digital has your back with sleep sounds and advice.
Playlists focused on just sleep sounds are growing in popularity as more people struggle to get the recommended minimum of 7 hours of sleep per night. Achieving consistent quality sleep is one of the major components in maintaining a person’s physical, emotional, and mental health. Sleep-related issues such as insomnia, sleep deprivation, and frequent restlessness can negatively impact a person’s hormone levels, mood, blood pressure, heart health, and body weight.
As a society, we’re all tired and in dire need of sleep! Fortunately, recent technological advancements have freed us from relying on traditional white noise machines and have given us more options. Specially curated playlists and sleep albums have become an accessible solution for many seeking better quality rest.
A helpful series of five sleep-promoting playlists were recently created by Endel, a sound technology that generates real-time personalized soundscapes to enhance sleep, relaxation, and focus. Endel’s core algorithm is based on circadian rhythms, pentatonic scale, and sound masking. A Berlin-based team of artists, developers, and scientists created these playlists, which feature scientifically proven and expertly crafted sleep sounds to help you enjoy the benefits of restorative slumber.

Multiple scientific studies indicate that certain types of music and sounds have the power to help lull us into a deep sleep. Sounds inspired by nature, devoid of instrumentation or human vocals, have been shown to be equally or even more effective than traditionally composed melodies.
Love what you hear? Endel has a globally available iOS mobile app as well! This tool generates real-time personalized sound environments to enhance focus, relaxation, and sleep. This recently released app empowers its user to ease the mind, minimize distractions, and help create a more relaxed environment. The app’s sound engine incorporates specially tuned noises to make distracting sounds and harsh interruptions less audible through sound masking. After choosing one of four different sound modes: Sleep, Relax, Focus, and On-the-Go, Endel produces a soothing and physiologically natural soundscape, which adapts real-time to a number of personal inputs like location, time zone, weather, and heart rate.
