My go to now is Beach Storm sounds, heavy rain, crashing waves, occasional thunder, or rainforest sounds, are all good to help me.

 

 

I've tried those too, but there's often simply too much happening in them to relax me - a sudden thunder crash is enough to jolt me fully awake!

 

I go for the constant and consistent water sounds that are closer to white noise, which is why the GA ones work well for me vs the inconsistency of a Spotify playlist, or even the frustration of a single track on repeat having that moment's gap before it restarts - that's enough to disturb me.

 

Has anyone here tried using ASMR to fall asleep, and has it actually worked for anyone?

Perhaps remove the storm and try rain forest or just beach sounds?

 

With my Echo device I start something playing and then tell Alexa to shutdown in 15 minutes or 30 minutes.

Mine too...oh no - wait - that is my wife snoring...! 🤫

 

 

 

It is; it may not be the music, of course. We replaced our bed a couple of years ago and to be honest, despite it coming from the same maker and being the top of the tree at the time, neither my wife nor I have been as impressed with it as we were with the predecessor. There is a lot more - I think the technical term is - partner disturbance with this one and it may need replacing.

 

However, the music thing might fall into the same category as playing on my PS4, something else I have had to ban myself from doing close to bedtime!

 

I have a naturally noisy mind which is why I value peace and isolation so highly - I make enough internal noise with a brain that won't cease, so I really do not need external noise as well!

 

 



I think you need to replace your partner.......that will conclusively solve your current problem.
(it may create others, but thats for another day.)

 

You could always let her take the bed, and advise her that her replacement will be bringing a new one anyway.......
That should result you in being knocked out cold......and at least giving you one 'solid' nights sleep on the floor..... 

At the end of the day - if nothing else - you will have eliminated two possible causes of your sleeping problem
(sux if you STILL cant sleep of course....) :-)

I've been listening to sleep stories to help me fall asleep recently.

 

Once you find a few narrators whose voices you find soothing they work really well.
