Best Songs To Listen To When You Cannot Sleep

Updated on September 3, 2016

Lack of Sleep affect our moods, attitudes, concentration, focus, alertness, ability to make decisions, solve problems, can cause accidents, injuries and can cause health problems.

According to the Harvard Health Publications Family Health Guide,

Insomnia is defined as an inadequate quantity or quality of sleep that interferes with normal daytime functioning. For some people, insomnia means difficulty in falling asleep, for others it’s difficulty in maintaining sleep, and for still others it’s early awakening.

Fear, anxiety and stress can be the result of insomnia. If you are worried or anxious about an event, and have problems sleeping, let these songs be the best remedy.

Saxophone music is really wonderful music to fall asleep to. Check out this youtube video.

Jazz Music is also soothing music to go to sleep to.

      Thanks for introducing me to these songs. I fall asleep in reasonably good time but it helps to think about some good lyrics while my eyes are closed.
