Helping you to sleep better
Welcome to the sleep centre
The public is missing out on one night’s worth of sleep each week, according to the Royal Society for Public Health.
“We all have trouble sleeping occasionally – perhaps as a result of stress, something traumatic happening in our lives or as a side effect of another health condition or medication. Whether it’s temporary or something you’ve been living with for a while, it’s important to identify what might be causing your sleep disturbance so that you can take steps to help alleviate it. People are all different so a ‘one size fits all’ solution isn’t helpful. Our experts have contributed to this hub so that you can find what works for you.”

One new technique that many people are using to help them get to sleep is ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). You may be surprised by just how many views ASMR videos already get on YouTube!
We've collaborated with YouTuber WhispersRed to create our very own track, creating a new night sound that can induce relaxation, aiding in longer sleep duration and healthier sleep patterns.
Lullabies have been used across cultures for centuries to sooth babies and help them fall asleep. And they seem to work, so why can’t lullabies help adults too?
By examining the components of popular lullabies, could we create the ultimate song or piece of music that will help us to feel calm and drift into restful sleep? And if we could, what would it be like? What kind of instruments would it include?
We’ve produced two lullabies that can be enjoyed by adults or children, one’s been composed and played by humans and the other has been created by an Artificial Intelligence machine. Which one works the best for you?
Whether you're a new parent, University student or a performance athlete you will already know that sleep is essential for both your mental and physical health.

In our third instalment to promote relaxation, along with tools and techniques that may aid sleep, we explore the power of different sound frequencies.
For some people, simply getting more exercise or consuming less caffeine can make all the difference.
All the colours of noise have significantly different properties and as audio signals they will sound different to human ears.
For the purposes of these sleep and relaxation aids, we have focused on white, pink and brown noise.
Ambient recordings have been taken of natural surroundings that have similar frequencies to white, pink and brown noise.
