My personal way to improving my sleep in order to not further add to the stress by lack of sleep is meditation and progressive muscle relaxation. Several weeks ago, I was approached by Mark from Ennora to review their Powerful Meditation Music.
When I first listened to the tunes, I was honestly not too impressed, since synthesizer music is usually not my cup of tea. But when I read more about the reason behind the music, I saw the tunes in a completely new light and was hooked. This special meditation program is helping you to achieve the aspired state, whether it is to prepare for a busy day or to calm yourself before bedtime, by Binaural Beats.
Binaural Beats were first discovered by the German physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove in 1839, who noticed that "slightly different frequencies played separately to each ear produced a perception of interference at the same rate as the difference between the two frequencies." (Ennora.com)
Over time, more research in brain function revealed that the brain could actually be trained to move into certain frequency waves; for example, tests have shown that with the help of binaural beats, low-frequency brain activity could be achieved, similar to the brain waves of Buddhist monks in deep meditation.
How do Binaural Beats work? When listening to the meditation music, you will have to wear stereo headphones. Each ear will receive a slightly different beat (e.g. 200 Hz for the left and 205 Hz for the right ear). In order to compensate, the brainwaves start to vibrate at the difference of the two beats you hear (e.g. 5 Hz). With this training, it is able to achieve every state in between deep relaxation as in the deep sleep phase (Delta state) to high mental alertness (Gamma state).
