One Simple Trick For A Good Night's Sleep

By Aisha Beau Johnson

There you are, tucked in, determined to finally get a good night’s sleep. You close your eyes, roll over, take a deep breath and bam. Your to-do list, what you had for lunch two months ago, and stress about work begin racing through your mind. And before you know it, that peaceful sleep you anticipated is long gone.

A new technology that can help ease stress, anxiety, and promote sleep has been introduced to give your brain that much needed slowdown.

These racing thoughts and sudden bursts of energy when we hit the sheets can be one of the key factors disrupting our sleep patterns. Fortunately, a new technology that can help ease stress, anxiety, and promote sleep has been introduced to give your brain that much needed slowdown. Enter: Binaural Beats.

Binaural Beats are a combination of two different sound frequencies that create the perception of a single new tone. In recent years, they’ve been used as a form of sound therapy.


Why are they so useful? Well, according to Psychology Today research shows that when exposed to these tones, we receive positive changes in our brain’s sense of arousal. The low frequency of each tone helps to trigger a slowdown to brainwave activity, allowing you to more easily fall into a state of relaxation.

The best part about Binaural Beats is that they’re accessible. Simply type Binaural Beats into a YouTube search bar and you’re greeted with tons of options to choose from.

These audio recordings are also versatile in that they can be utilized during the day, to increase focus and concentration, creativity, and help manage pain.

Anser’s own co-founder, Tia Mowry, has shared the life changing effects of Binaural Beats and how they’ve become part of her daily routine. "I'll go into my trailer; I'll lock out my room. I'll put my incense on. It'll only be for like five minutes. I'll close my eyes. I listen to my binaural beats. It's amazing how I feel more refreshed than ever just in those 5 to 10 minutes."

Sound plays a tremendous role on our mood and this might just be the remedy you need to achieve the rest you deserve.
