alcohol is actually bad for your sleep, as much as it helps you drift off the sleep isn't as restful

According to Lyz Cooper, founder of the British Academy of Sound Therapy, the song has been created using various scientific theories and make use of musical principles that are known to have individually calming effects. Hence these elements have been combined together by Marconi Union to make the perfect relaxing song ever. The song comprises of a sustaining rhythm that starts at 60 beats per minute and gradually slows to around 50. Thus, while listening to the song, your heartbeat automatically comes to match that beat. She even adds that it is necessary for the song to be eight minutes long because it takes about five minutes for entertainment to occur. The gaps between the notes have been chosen to create a feeling of euphoria and comfort. In addition, there are no repetitive melodies in the song which allows one's brain to completely switch off since one is no longer trying to predict what is next. The random chimes in the song help induce a deeper sense of relaxation and the final element in the song is the low, whooshing sounds and hums, those like the Buddhist chants.

Yeah I've heard that but what if you naturally have unrestful sleep? I regularly wake up numerous times throughout the night and always struggle to drift off.. maybe alcohol aided sleep isn't great quality sleep but it certainly feels better than my natural sleep lol.

nowaysj - that'd make sense, maybe I'm getting constantly stuck at the dream stage of sleep and waking up before getting to the deep stage.. hence the feeling shitty.

I did a sleep study at like a sleep doc, and the report said I woke 40 times an hour. HAHA, madness. I've had bags under my eyes reach my ears... think about that for a minute.
