If you struggle to get out of bed in the morning, you’re not alone as near half of British women (43%) and (35%) men say they are not getting enough sleep, and lack of sleep has got to be one of the worst feelings ever. I guess you know this or you would not be here reading.
You know your body needs sleep, just as it needs air and food to function at its best. During sleep, your body heals itself and restores its chemical balance. Your brain creates new connections and helps memory retention. Without enough sleep, your brain and body systems don’t function normally. which impacts on your quality of life in areas such as:
No time for the kids and family, Feelings of agitation, Lack of focus and concentration
To be honest, that's enough, the list appears to be endless as health experts are now sounding alarm bells and warning of the detrimental effect sleep deprivation can have on long-term overall health and well being.
It's all about the innovative sound therapy technology that's behind the music that does all the work. We use the sound therapy for sleep and relaxation as it locks on to the higher brainwaves that are in the Beta/Stressed range, then gently en-trains the brainwaves to drop into alpha then theta and eventually deep delta. Your state will fluctuate between Alpha, theta, delta however, the aim is to move the brain from the conscious overthinking Beta which the sleep and relaxation products do really effectively.
I personally listen to the Mind Relax through a sound pillow to sooth away any of the days over thinking, that then gives me a good nights sleep. I also listen during the day on my phone when I just need a couple of minutes to chill and recharge my energy levels.
In the sound therapy for sleep and relaxation range the Mind Relax took over 2 years to put together and it is used extensively in schools and colleges as well as plenty of homes to bring about a state of calm. The sound therapy for sleep and relaxation series helps with anxiety, panic attacks and sleep problems, it truly is sound therapy for sleep and relaxation.
In simple terms, white noise is a special type of sound signal with a full spectrum of frequencies which is used to mask background sounds. When used to promote healthy sleep, white noise helps to drown out sounds which might otherwise prevent you from either falling asleep or waking up whilst asleep.
Contrary to popular belief, sleep is not passive — your brain is actually working hard. Whilst lying there, it tries to progress through a series of important steps, all of which are crucial to your mental and emotional health. This is called a sleep cycle.
These stages are linked to what are known as brainwave states and an "electroencephalogram" (EEG) measures the electrical brain activity to determine what brainwave states you enter during sleep.
The ideal is to move from Gamma/Beta and through calming the mind, drop the brainwaves down to Aplha/Theta/Delta. Once there, you move between these 3 states during sleep and get the rest and rejuvenation that you need.
However, if we can't relax and have nagging thoughts and fears going on, then we tend to stay in Beta and therefore lie there processing these thoughts and driving ourselves crazy as we try to force ourselves to sleep by counting sheep, breathing or visualising. However if are brainwaves don't drop to the lower states, then it becomes a wasted exercise, that often makes us even more frustrated and less likely to sleep.
