Before resorting to popping sleeping pills, let’s look at a 100 percent safe sleep solution first! According to the World Sleep Society, sleep issues have created a global epidemic that threatens health and quality of life for up to 45 percent of the world’s population. Fortunately for us, relaxing sounds represent one of the most affordable and easily accessible sleep aids to try out if you have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep.
Multiple scientific studies have shown us that certain sounds help us sleep. From studies that show how listening to ocean sounds helps deepen sleep to studies demonstrating how listening to white noise can significantly promote sleep, we know sound can have a profound psychological and physiological effect on us, especially when it comes to getting zzz’s.
Endel, a mobile app that generates real-time personalized sound environments to enhance sleep, focus, and relaxation is now available for iOS users globally. This recently released tool empowers its user to ease the mind, minimize distractions, and help capture some valuable shuteye in 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.The Berlin-based team of artists, developers, and scientists that developed the revolutionary app understands that sound has a direct impact on our well-being, affecting our heart rate, blood pressure, and state of mind.
Users are given the option to select from four different sound modes based on their personal needs— 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.
