Tonight's question - What type of sound do you miss on this podcast? Leave a comment in the review👇 «Do you have one with rain on a tent? like you're camping?» Requested by Mandy KaneWed, Jun 19, 2019 via CastBox If you want your own customized sleep sound, leave us a review. You can also leave a private review here: https://www.asmrsleeptriggers.com/feedback OPEN LONG SLEEP PLAYLISTS ON SPOTIFY HERE: Rain Sound Ocean Sounds Ambient music for sleep Thunderstorms for sleep Waterfall and river sounds Whale sounds and underwater sounds White noise sleep and tinnitus masking Singing bowls for mindful meditation https://www.asmrsleeptriggers.com Open sleep playlists on Apple Music.   HERE ARE SOME TIPS FOR BETTER SLEEP. TIP 1. SET A BEDTIME ALARM AND STICK TO A CONSISTENT SLEEP ROUTINE. Your body’s internal clock, a.k.a. your circadian rhythm plays a key role in regulating your sleep-wake cycle. This clock tells your body when it’s time to wake up in the morning and when to start unwinding at the end of the day.  TIP 2. KEEP YOUR BEDROOM COOL. Lowering your body temperature will help you sleep faster. That's why a bedroom with a temperature of 18°C or  64.4°F is ideal.  TIP 3. GO OUTSIDE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. Get at least 60 minutes of natural daylight exposure first thing in the morning. Light is the strongest stimulus for regulating a person’s sleep-wake schedule. It doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy or sunshine, the key is to trick the brain into a new morning routine. Don’t put shades on because it will diminish the light reset function in your body clock. TIP 4. DON'T DRINK COFFEE OR CAFFEINE AFTER NOON. Caffeine has a half-life of six hours. Caffeine is also what we call a psychoactive stimulant. For some people, a single cup of coffee in the morning means a sleepless night.  TIP 5. BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE. Regular aerobic exercise like walking, running, or swimming provides three important sleep benefits: you'll fall asleep faster, attain a higher percentage of restorative deep sleep, and awaken less often during the night. TIP 6. LIMIT DAYTIME NAPS AFTER 3 PM. Prolonged napping can disrupt your natural sleep cycle and prevent you from feeling tired enough to fall asleep. TIP 7. EAT HEALTHY AND AT REGULAR TIMES Food is just as powerful a trigger as light is. Avoid large meals and beverages at late night hours. Recent studies have shown that your eating schedule is correlated with how your body clock works.  TIP 8. CLEAN YOUR BEDROOM AND TURN OF THE BLUE LIGHT DEVICES. Remove the television, telephone, and any other devices that radiate blue light from the bedroom. Blue light can affect your sleep and potentially cause sleep diseases.

Tonight's question - What type of sound do you miss on this podcast? Leave a comment in the review👇 Requested by Traci Johnson-Hartman, Wed, Jun 19, 2019 via CastBox «I miss falling to sleep to the sound of an old fashion humidifier. Where the lid sat on top of the base and it had a round disc that would spin to make the water mist. It was just something about the sound of the motor mixed with the spinning disc in the water making the misting sound. It would put me to sleep every time».

Take yourself on a mental journey: Imagine taking a nice walk in the jungle towards a tropical beach. Letting your mind float away as you’re taking yourself on a mental journey will hasten the onset of sleep. The mental journey can consist of real memories, or you can make up your own imaginary journey - either way it will relax you and slow down swirly thoughts. Open our LONG sleep playlists on Spotify: https://www.asmrsleeptriggers.com Bringing back good memories: A couple of years ago while backpacking through Asia, I found it easier to fall asleep. I went to bed when I felt tired, becoming one with natures own sleep cycle, the sunset, and sundown. This was a new feeling for me, completely detached from the nine to five life just for a couple of weeks. I remember the relaxing feeling from spending my days on a white beach, with a hot burning sun and gentle ocean waves. The feeling of hot sand sifts between my fingers. The warmth from the sun relaxing my body. The sound of twittering exotic birds from the jungle. Slow waves and the smell of the salty ocean. These thoughts went through my mind every night as I fell asleep.  After coming home to the stressful everyday life, these thoughts kept swirling through my mind and hastened the onset of my sleep significantly compared to before. Bringing back good memories from the trip, where my body was in full relaxation and the only thing that mattered was the here and now, making it easier to put away stressful events from daily life.  Finding your personal mental relaxation: Perhaps you’ve never spent your days on a quiet beach with the relaxing sounds from a calm ocean, and don’t have these memories in your mind accessible to use while falling asleep. Don’t worry! You can always use your imagination and make up your own mental journey. The rhythmic nature of actual ocean sounds might help you fall into a calm deep sleep.  To increase the onset of falling asleep you can experiment by using memories from a time in total relaxation, make up your own mental journey or even listen to relaxing sounds.  Do you have a travel memory or a place you find it easier to fall asleep? We would love to hear from you 💖 Please share your story in the review or comments. Sweet dreams ❤️

This clock tells your body when it’s time to wake up in the morning and when to start unwinding at the end of the day.  TIP 2. KEEP YOUR BEDROOM COOL. Lowering your body temperature will help you sleep faster. That's why a bedroom with a temperature of 18°C or  64.4°F is ideal.  TIP 3. GO OUTSIDE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. Get at least 60 minutes of natural daylight exposure first thing in the morning. Light is the strongest stimulus for regulating a person’s sleep-wake schedule. It doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy or sunshine, the key is to trick the brain into a new morning routine. Don’t put shades on because it will diminish the light reset function in your body clock. TIP 4. DON'T DRINK COFFEE OR CAFFEINE AFTER NOON. Caffeine has a half-life of six hours. Caffeine is also what we call a psychoactive stimulant. For some people, a single cup of coffee in the morning means a sleepless night.  TIP 5. BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE. Regular aerobic exercise like walking, running, or swimming provides three important sleep benefits: you'll fall asleep faster, attain a higher percentage of restorative deep sleep, and awaken less often during the night. TIP 6. LIMIT DAYTIME NAPS AFTER 3 PM. Prolonged napping can disrupt your natural sleep cycle and prevent you from feeling tired enough to fall asleep. TIP 7. EAT HEALTHY AND AT REGULAR TIMES Food is just as powerful a trigger as light is. Avoid large meals and beverages at late night hours. Recent studies have shown that your eating schedule is correlated with how your body clock works.  TIP 8. CLEAN YOUR BEDROOM AND TURN OF THE BLUE LIGHT DEVICES. Remove the television, telephone, and any other devices that radiate blue light from the bedroom. Blue light can affect your sleep and potentially cause sleep diseases.

Hi! We are back with new relaxing sleep episodes. This sleep sounds episode was requested from Maeve Kilroy via Apple Podcasts. Very relaxing “This podcast helps me go to bed and stay calm when stressing. I would love if you did a babbling brook, waterfall or an asmr tapping sound” maeve kilroy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/19 If you want your own customized sleep sound, leave us a review. If you find river sounds and waterfalls relaxing, follow the 8-hour sleep playlist on Spotify here: https://www.asmrsleeptriggers.com/waterfalls Find all our long sleep playlists here: https://www.asmrsleeptriggers.com HOW MUCH SLEEP DO YOU ACTUALLY NEED? You are actually doing yourself a disservice by sacrificing sleep because, without it, your brain becomes foggy, your judgment poor, and your fine motor skills hindered. During sleep, your brain is busy processing information from the day and forming memories. Sleep deprivation does, in fact, impair your ability to learn and retain new information. Behavioral studies have shown the critical role sleep plays as a powerful learning- and memory aid. Both before learning, to prepare your brain for making new memories, and after learning, to cement those memories and prevent forgetting. These are the recommended sleep durations per age from www.sleepfoundation.org Newborns (0-3 months) 14-17 h. Infant (4-11 months) 12-15 h. Toddler (1-2 years) 11-14 h. Pre-School (3-5 y) 10-13 h. School Age (6-13 y) 9-11 h. Teen (14-17 y) 8-10h. Adults (18+) 7-9 h. WHY IS SLEEP IMPORTANT? Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life.  During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. Studies show that a good night's sleep improves learning. Sleep also helps you pay attention, make decisions, and be creative. The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (such as a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Until next time. Stay strong and sleep well.

Planned app release, late 2019, only iPhone iOS. 10 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP TIP 1. SET A BEDTIME ALARM AND STICK TO A CONSISTENT SLEEP ROUTINE. Your body’s internal clock, a.k.a. your circadian rhythm, plays a key role in regulating your sleep-wake cycle. It’s impacted by melatonin, which takes its cues from the amount of light present in your environment. This is why its very effective turn down the lights and have an hour of wind down time before bedtime. TIP 2. GO OUTSIDE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. Get at least 30–60 minutes of natural daylight exposure first thing in the morning. Light is the strongest stimulus for regulating a person’s sleep-wake schedule.  TIP 3. DON'T DRINK COFFEE OR CAFFEINE AFTER 1 PM. Caffeine has a half-life of about six hours.  TIP 4. BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE. GET YOUR SWEAT ON! Regular exercise provides three important sleep benefits: you'll fall asleep faster, attain a higher percentage of restorative deep sleep, and awaken less often during the night. TIP 5. LIMIT DAYTIME NAPS AFTER 3 PM. Prolonged napping can disrupt your natural sleep cycle and prevent you from falling asleep a night.  TIP 6. EAT HEALTHY AND AT REGULAR TIMES. Food is just as powerful a trigger as light is. People who don’t get enough sleep eat, on average, 385 kcal more than usual. TIP 7. MYTH BUSTED - DROP THE NIGHTCAP. Alcohol is probably the most misunderstood sleep aid or sleep drug. Alcohol is a class of drugs that we call the sedatives. And sedation is not sleep. TIP 8. CLEAN YOUR BEDROOM AND TURN OF THE BLUE LIGHT DEVICES. Try to avoid looking at bright screens beginning two to three hours before bedtime. TIP 9. DON'T LIE IN BED AWAKE. USE THE BED ONLY FOR SLEEP AND SEX. If you're still awake after about 20 minutes in bed, get up and do some relaxing activity until you feel sleepy. Otherwise, you'll set yourself up for tossing and turning. TIP 10. TRY TO AVOID TAKING SLEEPING PILLS. If you do take a prescription sleep medicine, work with your doctor to use it effectively and for as short a time as possible. Until next time. Stay strong and sleep well.

NEW SLEEP APP: We are developing a exciting new sleep meditation app where you can customize your personal sleep sound. The app will include premium audio content tailor-made for sleep. Try our app for free! (Planned release spring, 2019, Only iPhone iOS) Sign up here: https://bit.ly/2s20bzh WHY IS SLEEP IMPORTANT? To understand why sleep is important, think of your body like a factory that performs a number of vital functions. As you drift off to sleep, your body begins its night-shift work: • Healing damaged cells • Boosting your immune system • Recovering from the day’s activities • Recharging your heart and cardiovascular system for the next day We’ve all experienced the feeling of being refreshed after a good night’s sleep and the feeling of fatigue after a poor night’s sleep. But even though we know this, in our busy society, many of us are not getting the quality sleep needed to truly receive the health benefits of sleep. UNDERSTANDING THE SLEEP CYCLE: Understanding what happens during sleep also means understanding the sleep cycle, which consists of two recurring phases: REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non-REM or non-rapid eye movement). Both phases are important for different functions in our bodies. NREM sleep typically occupies 75–80% of total sleep each night. Many of the health benefits of sleep take place during NREM sleep – tissue growth and repair occurs, energy is restored and hormones that are essential for growth and development are released. REM sleep typically occupies 20–25% of total sleep each night. REM sleep, when dreaming occurs, is essential to our minds for processing and consolidating emotions, memories and stress. It is also thought to be vital for learning, stimulating the brain regions used in learning and developing new skills. If the REM and NREM cycles are interrupted multiple times throughout the night — either due to snoring, difficulties breathing or waking up frequently throughout the night — then we miss out on vital body processes, which can affect our health and well-being the next day and long term. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP? If you regularly get less sleep than you need, your accumulated sleep debt will grow larger over time. Research shows that accumulated sleep loss negatively impacts mood and cognitive performance. If your body doesn’t get a chance to properly recharge, you might find yourself: • Feeling drowsy, irritable or sometimes depressed • Struggling to take in new information at work, remembering things or making decisions • Craving more unhealthy foods, which could cause weight gain If this happens night after night, it places a tremendous strain on your nervous system, body and overall health. So if you’re not sleeping well or aren’t feeling rested when you wake up in the morning, it’s important to talk to your doctor and ask if a sleep study is right for you. Sweet dreams and sleep well 😴

But even though we know this, in our busy society, many of us are not getting the quality sleep needed to truly receive the health benefits of sleep. UNDERSTANDING THE SLEEP CYCLE: Understanding what happens during sleep also means understanding the sleep cycle, which consists of two recurring phases: REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non-REM or non-rapid eye movement). Both phases are important for different functions in our bodies. NREM sleep typically occupies 75–80% of total sleep each night. Many of the health benefits of sleep take place during NREM sleep – tissue growth and repair occurs, energy is restored and hormones that are essential for growth and development are released. REM sleep typically occupies 20–25% of total sleep each night. REM sleep, when dreaming occurs, is essential to our minds for processing and consolidating emotions, memories and stress. It is also thought to be vital for learning, stimulating the brain regions used in learning and developing new skills. If the REM and NREM cycles are interrupted multiple times throughout the night — either due to snoring, difficulties breathing or waking up frequently throughout the night — then we miss out on vital body processes, which can affect our health and well-being the next day and long term. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP? If you regularly get less sleep than you need, your accumulated sleep debt will grow larger over time. Research shows that accumulated sleep loss negatively impacts mood and cognitive performance. If your body doesn’t get a chance to properly recharge, you might find yourself: • Feeling drowsy, irritable or sometimes depressed • Struggling to take in new information at work, remembering things or making decisions • Craving more unhealthy foods, which could cause weight gain If this happens night after night, it places a tremendous strain on your nervous system, body and overall health. So if you’re not sleeping well or aren’t feeling rested when you wake up in the morning, it’s important to talk to your doctor and ask if a sleep study is right for you. Sweet dreams a

If your body doesn’t get a chance to properly recharge, you might find yourself: • Feeling drowsy, irritable or sometimes depressed • Struggling to take in new information at work, remembering things or making decisions • Craving more unhealthy foods, which could cause weight gain If this happens night after night, it places a tremendous strain on your nervous system, body and overall health. So if you’re not sleeping well or aren’t feeling rested when you wake up in the morning, it’s important to talk to your doctor and ask if a sleep study is right for you. Sweet dreams and sleep well 😴

Sleep Meditation Podcast donation PayPal-link: https://bit.ly/2Tk1oxu WHY IS SLEEP IMPORTANT? To understand why sleep is important, think of your body like a factory that performs a number of vital functions. As you drift off to sleep, your body begins its night-shift work: • Healing damaged cells • Boosting your immune system • Recovering from the day’s activities • Recharging your heart and cardiovascular system for the next day We’ve all experienced the feeling of being refreshed after a good night’s sleep and the feeling of fatigue after a poor night’s sleep. But even though we know this, in our busy society, many of us are not getting the quality sleep needed to truly receive the health benefits of sleep. UNDERSTANDING THE SLEEP CYCLE: Understanding what happens during sleep also means understanding the sleep cycle, which consists of two recurring phases: REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non-REM or non-rapid eye movement). Both phases are important for different functions in our bodies. NREM sleep typically occupies 75–80% of total sleep each night. Many of the health benefits of sleep take place during NREM sleep – tissue growth and repair occurs, energy is restored and hormones that are essential for growth and development are released. REM sleep typically occupies 20–25% of total sleep each night. REM sleep, when dreaming occurs, is essential to our minds for processing and consolidating emotions, memories and stress. It is also thought to be vital for learning, stimulating the brain regions used in learning and developing new skills. If the REM and NREM cycles are interrupted multiple times throughout the night — either due to snoring, difficulties breathing or waking up frequently throughout the night — then we miss out on vital body processes, which can affect our health and well-being the next day and long term. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP? If you regularly get less sleep than you need, your accumulated sleep debt will grow larger over time. Research shows that accumulated sleep loss negatively impacts mood and cognitive performance. If your body doesn’t get a chance to properly recharge, you might find yourself: • Feeling drowsy, irritable or sometimes depressed • Struggling to take in new information at work, remembering things or making decisions • Craving more unhealthy foods, which could cause weight gain If this happens night after night, it places a tremendous strain on your nervous system, body and overall health.

To understand why sleep is important, think of your body like a factory that performs a number of vital functions. As you drift off to sleep, your body begins its night-shift work: • Healing damaged cells • Boosting your immune system • Recovering from the day’s activities • Recharging your heart and cardiovascular system for the next day We’ve all experienced the feeling of being refreshed after a good night’s sleep and the feeling of fatigue after a poor night’s sleep. But even though we know this, in our busy society, many of us are not getting the quality sleep needed to truly receive the health benefits of sleep. UNDERSTANDING THE SLEEP CYCLE: Understanding what happens during sleep also means understanding the sleep cycle, which consists of  two recurring phases: REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non-REM or non-rapid eye movement). Both phases are important for different functions in our bodies. NREM sleep typically occupies 75–80% of total sleep each night. Many of the health benefits of sleep take place during NREM sleep – tissue growth and repair occurs, energy is restored and hormones that are essential for growth and development are released. REM sleep typically occupies 20–25% of total sleep each night. REM sleep, when dreaming occurs, is essential to our minds for processing and consolidating emotions, memories and stress. It is also thought to be vital for learning, stimulating the brain regions used in learning and developing new skills. If the REM and NREM cycles are interrupted multiple times throughout the night — either due to snoring, difficulties breathing or waking up frequently throughout the night — then we miss out on vital body processes, which can affect our health and well-being the next day and long term. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP? If you regularly get less sleep than you need, your accumulated sleep debt will grow larger over time. Research shows that accumulated sleep loss negatively impacts mood and cognitive performance. If your body doesn’t get a chance to properly recharge, you might find yourself: • Feeling drowsy, irritable or sometimes depressed • Struggling to take in new information at work, remembering things or making decisions • Craving more unhealthy foods, which could cause weight gain If this happens night after night, it places a tremendous strain on your nervous system, body and overall health. So if you’re not sleeping well or aren’t feeling rested when you wake up in the morning, it’s important to talk to your doctor and ask if a sleep study is right for you. Sweet dreams and sleep well 😴
