Why you need the radio on at night
There are several reasons why people find it easier to fall asleep with the radio on than in complete silence. The most obvious explanation is that radio relaxes the mind and distracts you from worrying about things.
Another reason is that listening to the same radio programme every night can form part of a bedtime ritual, which sleep experts recommend to those suffering from sleep problems.
It’s also better than watching TV or reading, as you can switch the light off which tells your brain it’s time to sleep.
Having the radio on in the background also blocks out other noises that might disturb us, such as traffic and other people in the house. Radio tends to have a fairly constant volume, which makes it easier for us to relax.
Research has shown that loud traffic noises have a negative effect on health and increase stress levels.
Listening to the radio at a moderate volume can help keep you relaxed. Radio also helps people with tinnitus, as complete silence makes tinnitus seem louder
