How to get good sleep is easier to figure out than ever thanks to sleep-promoting sounds becoming more accessible! More here.

How to get good sleep is no longer a mystery or difficult to achieve with the help of sleep-promoting sounds!

To break things down, slumber can be divided into three parts: light sleep, rapid eye movement (REM), and deep sleep. In light sleep and REM, an individual’s brain waves are very similar to brain waves while awake. Deep sleep is characterized by long-burst brain waves called delta waves, which occur only during this window. When humans don’t get enough deep sleep, the ability to learn is inhibited and the body’s cells struggle to recover. Deep sleep is also the stage in which individuals commit daily interactions to long-term memory, which also influences a person’s personality.

Getting restorative deep sleep is proving to be critical when it comes to maintaining brain health. According to Medical News Today, adults who do not get enough deep sleep may be at greater risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Finding the right sound environment to promote this stage of sleep is important. While engineered sleep sounds are popping up on the smartphone app scene, one such app called Endel was designed by a dedicated Berlin-based team of artists, developers, and scientists. This iOS mobile app is now available worldwide and generates real-time personalized sound environments to enhance sleep, focus, and relaxation. This recently released tool makes it easy for its user to ease the mind, minimize distractions, and help capture some valuable rest in a more relaxed environment. The app’s sound engine incorporates specially tuned noises to make distracting sounds and harsh interruptions less audible.

Users can choose from four different sound modes based on their personal needs at any given time— Sleep, Relax, Focus, and On-the-Go. The app then automatically generates a distinct natural soundscape, which also adapts real-time to a number of personal inputs like location, time zone, weather, and heart rate. Endel’s core algorithm is based on circadian rhythms, pentatonic scale, and sound masking. These carefully crafted sound environments are completely algorithm-powered and meant to gently rise and fall in line with your current conditions.
