Listening to music when sleeping...

Sometimes I have the habit of listening to mellow music before going to sleep.When I'm not yet sleepy I would go someplace quite and get any portable device that will give me the music I want then listen to it until I feel tired and ready to get to bed.But it doesn't stop there,before I lay down I will turn on my laptop to listen to more music after a while i can feel my eyes closing on itself that I forget to tun off the music. Do you also listen to music sometimes before going to sleep?

You are not alone, i do this every single time when i sleep it`s like a habit for me too.In the summer when i go sometime at my village i go on the top of the house on the roof and i listen music from portable devices.This is my way to relax.It makes me feel better , it`s something like .. ooh i can`t explain it but it`s lovely and so relaxing , it`s the best thing somebody must do when he try to sleep , but the music musn`t be loud , because you can hurt your ears.Try on min volume with a mellow music like you said and it`s lovely

Sometimes I do that when I can't sleep. I am an insomniac and it helps me a lot to relax and forget about everything else so that I can sleep well. I use my cellphone to do that at night.

No, I really do not like listening to music when it is close to time going to sleep or most certainly, when I am sleeping. I do like to listen to music pretty much for the entire day without fail. However, when I am about ready to go to sleep, for about the hour before, that is when the music has to stop. There is a very obvious reason for this. When I try and sleep with music, I am not really sleeping. I am listening to the music and therefore I do not get any sleep. Kind of defeats the purpose of trying to get to sleep. It does sound like a nice idea and if it works for you, then that is great. However, it does not work for me that well. When its time for me to go to sleep, then I have to turn the music off, otherwise I will not be able to focus on going to sleep. Otherwise I am not really sleeping.

I don't listen to music when I sleep because it is just a distraction to me . . When I sleep, I want my surroundings to be quiet and I want to sleep with lights off. Have a wonderful day.

Sometimes i do that but quite rare these days. I usually am very tired that I sleep with, or without music. I also am very kin that if possible I don't leave the headset in my ears. I guess too much sound on the ears will strain it. So I want to make sure that I don't leave the headset on my ears.

yes. music is bliss for me. i don't think i can live without listening to it. music can consume me in a way that i feel so much for the song. whatever it is i listen to usually affects my mood. classical music serves as my lullaby. the tranquility that classical music expresses brings me to a peaceful place. when i'm feeling very emotional, i listen to love songs before i sleep. i seldom play club music when i'm alone in my room, i just don't feel they are the right songs to listen to before sleeping.

I know a lot of people do this, but when I tried doing this back when I was in college, it just didn't help. I ended up singing to the songs I'm listening, therefore, I was still awake. Mind you, I was playing the music really soft and the beat is slow, you know, just the thing for lulling a person to sleep supposedly. I had to turn the music off so I could go to sleep.

Sometimes when I am having troubles falling asleep then I will choose to listen to the radio so I can listen to some soothing music. I do have the same problem too where I fall asleep and then forget to turn off the radio and waste power. lol. Maybe when I feel myself closing my eyes or drifting off then I should turn it off.

We start to have this habit now. Before we go to bed at night, my husband will turn on the music player to play a long list of songs. Then we will sleep when we are listening to these songs. I love China
