This #Noise Fosters Deep #Sleep

deepsleepAs we age, our ability to reach the state of deep sleep becomes a distant memory with our youth. When our cells don’t get to the state of rest necessary for them to repair and regenerate, we show our age more than our well-rested peers. It’s an ugly truth, isn’t it? A study out of Northwestern University shows that you can trick your brain to slow the waves down so that your body is convinced you’re in deep sleep. The trickery it’s all about using gentle sound simulation, synchronized to the rhythm of brain waves. In effect, this can significantly enhance deep sleep in older adults. So exactly what type of noise is this rejuvenating sound? Of course, it’s the rush of a waterfall and this is known as pink noise. Here’s a full hour of it, for your listening and sleeping pleasure.
