Adults can learn a lot from babies. Not only have they perfected the art of relaxation, but it doesn’t take a lot to get them to sleep. A simple, soothing lullaby is all it takes for them to sleep like a baby. Meanwhile, adults are a lot more complicated, and remedy their inability to sleep with a dose of social media, Netflix and internet memes. It’s about time we realized that the perfect remedy to unwind after a long and tiring day is some soothing music!
Lullabies are unique. Unlike other soothing sounds from meditation apps and nature sounds that can be boring and repetitive, lullabies are creative and fun. It’s the ideal way to feel calm and tranquil after a long & tiring day.
As an adult, classic lullabies for babies such as twinkle twinkle little star and black sheep can seem childish and nonsensical. If you feel like you’re missing out on lullabies, we have good news! Your favourite songs are now available in lullaby renditions, so you can now get bands and artists like Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Bob Marley and Queen serenade you to sleep.
Ever wondered why lullabies make drifting off to sleep easier? Soothing music helps the brain release oxytocin that makes falling asleep quick and easy. According to science, western classical music with tempos of 60 – 80 beats per minute, stable rhythms and low pitched sounds are ideal to catch some Zzz.
We get it, not all lullabies appeal to adults. That’s why we’ve created a Spotify playlist just for you so that you can drift off sooner with our choicest selection of soothing tunes. You can also create your own playlist with lullaby renditions of your favourite bands and artists that resonate with your natural rhythm and help you unwind after a long day.

As adults, why do we stop listening to lullabies in the first place? Is it because of age? Soothing the mind from anxiety and stress is key to not just improving the quality but also quantity of sleep. Lullabies not only help distract the mind from stressors, it also creates a positive association with going to bed.
Lullabies have existed for centuries, and have always been rooted in love, tenderness and caring. It’s peaceful, hypnotic quality is the perfect solution to get some shut eye on an orthopedic mattress. Not only has it endured the test of time, but has survived across cultures to remain relevant in a digital age to provide an easy and inexpensive sleep solution in a world full of sleep disorders.
