Sleep-Aid / Relaxation Tools

By Mark Altman

For those of you who haven't tried the sleep-aid / relaxation tools on the website, this article will describe the tools and give advice on how to use them. For those who have used the tools already, the following tips may help you to use them more successfully.

The two Sleep Aid/Relaxation Tools can be found at: - Drumming tool

AND - Vibraphone tool

These tools allow you to mix nature sounds with drumming or vibraphone music to create your own relaxing ambience. You are able to control the volume of each sound, enabling you to fine-tune the music to suit your own unique tastes. I'd like to share with you my method of finding effective mixes.

Turn up each sound on the tool to it's highest volume (100). Very few people will enjoy the result of this mix. Concentrate on the feelings the music evokes, trying to find the sound that is working the least for you. Once you have found that sound, reduce the volume until it no longer bothers you (this may be a volume of 0). Continue doing this until all disquieting sounds have been either removed altogether or reduced to a comforting level.

Your "ultimate mix" may change from day to day, depending on your mood. To help me relax, I usually have thunder as my highest level (100), ocean (65), a light rain (26), and faint wind chimes (13). This mix makes me feel as though I am vacationing, and because of the inclement weather, I have no choice but to stay inside and relax. For me, this creates a very peaceful and calming atmosphere.

Experiment on your own. If you've found your own methods of using the tool, please share them with us all.
