    Check out 432 hz music. It’s calming and works for me.

    I used to put on Emmy Lou Harris's "Cimarron." Worked for me.

    Hearts of Space is a weekly radio program that plays selections of ambient and downtempo music. They have featured a number of the artists that have been mentioned in this thread. The free subscription gets you only the current week's episode, and can only be played three times. That's usually enough for me, but they have subscription packages that give you access to their back catalog which is quite extensive. It's pretty great for restful music. And some of the music is good enough that I've looked it up afterward to get full albums from the artists, rather than select tracks.

    Frankly speaking, if push comes to shove, it should be any music that you think is boring. Some reviews I've read regarding other famous artists that are just "phoning it in" or routinely plays and makes it all a snorefest will do just as well. if it's so/too boring that it annoys you and keeps you awake, it's not boring, because you do really take offense.

    It can even be Rammstein or some high energy metal that you think is boring. Whatever you think is boring. Not someone else. So this thread is kind of futile. Kids uses lullabies and so should you.

    I actually had a good find the other day with the audiobook of Sun Tzu "Art of War" read by the very deep-voiced reader Ron Silver. Knocked me right out. Bliss.

    Music doesn’t help. I get plenty of pop up fashion ads from google. I open one, pick a model I’d like to sleep with, close the browser, go back to bed, and I’m asleep with her in five.
