Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Cannot unlock your creativity in art class? Frequent headaches? Sometimes being a student in high school is hard. On top of school there is work, sports, extra-curricular activities, and trying to juggle a social life. With all of this going on, getting a good night’s rest can be hard. Well, here is a solution for you: Binaural Beats.
“What are binaural beats?” you may be asking. According to www.immramainstitute.com
“A binaural beat is when signals of two different frequencies are presented separately, one to each ear, your brain detects the phase variation between the frequencies and tries to reconcile that difference.” What this means is the brain is creating the third tone on its own, which makes the “beat” you are hearing.
Binaural beats can help with lack of focus, creativity, sleep, headaches, and even stress relief. To get the full effect of binaural beats, make sure you are in a quiet room using stereo headphones, and just relax. To test it out, Katelynn Wiser, a student at GCHS, listened to binaural beats for her headaches. After listening she said “I didn’t actually think they would work, I get headaches often and nothing really helps but sleep. I am happy to have found a way to get rid of my headaches that is simple and quick!”
Autumn Hollis is a sophomore at GCHS. She is very interested in a potential career in the arts. She said, “Sometimes it is hard to reach my goals because I know I can do better but it’s not always easy.” After listening to the binaural beats for creativity she said “I will definitely try this again, the only downside I would say is it made me kind of tired.”
Listening to binaural beats is a great way to ease daily stresses, unlock your creativity, and get a better night’s rest for the next school day. To try it out, here is a great link.
