2. Listen to music to help you sleep
Research has shown if you listen to relaxing music, even earlier in the day, it’ll help you sleep at night, says Amy Clements-Cortes, a Canadian researcher and music therapist.
“It seems to be a growing trend that people are using music more to facilitate sleep and relaxation,” she says.
One 2008 study in the Journal of Advanced Nursing, which looked at a pool of young people ranging from 19- to 28-years-old, concluded that relaxing classical music is an effective way to reduce sleeping problems. Meanwhile, a 2005 study in the same journal shows evidence that soothing music can help older adults sleep better. So whatever your age, mellowing out to music can help you get quality rest.
