I Sleep Listening to My Ipod

    Ipod Heaven

    I cannot sleep in silence very well. Just trying to relax is difficult. If I can hear myself breathing, I get more tense trying to relax. I end up holding my breath which does nothing to calm my body. I love sleeping with my iPod because it is so much better than the radio. I...

    Neat Little Trick

    I discovered a while back that I can actually find any artist in my 400+ song library without being able to see the screen. I own a 2GB Ipod nano. Its very old and the battery won't last long at all with the backlight on so I don't use it ever. When I first realized I could do it...

    What's On Your Ipod?

    Before I got an iPod for a Christmas present, I listen to music through my cd alarm clock.  Nowadays, I'm glued to my iPod specially when I'm sleeping.  Sometimes, my dreams have a soundtrack. Lately, I've been listening to David Cook's version of "Always be my...

    My Ipod Is the Last Thing I Hear When I Fall Asleep

    When I first started to listen to my iPod before bed, I set up a playlist labeled "bedtime" with a lot of slow moving music. I actually included some relaxation music that I had downloaded for free through iTunes. Then, I branched off into other types of relaxation...

    Sweet Bliss

    I can't sleep without some form of sound in the background.  I can't stand my breathing, or my family's footsteps, or anything else.  I listen to my iPod to fall asleep every night.  It's not even relaxing music, like New Age, but rather rock.  I don't know...

    Can't Sleep Without It

    I started listening to my iPod to help me relax so I could fall asleep.  I even have a playlist just for sleeping.  Now I can't fall asleep without it and sometimes sleep listening to music all night.  Not only is the music relaxing, but it drowns out the noise in...

    Lullaby Playlist!

    I have a lullaby play list that I often go to sleep to. My BF won an Ipod, along with a  portable dvd,  digital camera, mobile phone and a  triple  handset land line  phone.  What  a  prize?

    I Love My Ipod

    I Can't sleep without my Ipod. I like to listen to light classical music before I go to sleep and its so amazing to wake up to music in the morning. It really helps with my insomnia.

    I Need Music

    I have a stuffed tiger that has built in speakers for my iPod. It's great because I hate the feeling of my earbuds in my ears when I lay my head on the pillow. It seems like a lot of people need the music to relax, fill the silence, or drown out other sounds, but me? I just need...

    Listening To A Voice...

     Like other people have shared, I can't stand silence when I'm trying to relax. I fall asleep with my ipod on listening to, of all things, comedians. The sound of the human voice just lulls me to sleep (which is BAD sometimes, haha). I'm also a bit of a comic buff, and...
