    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Seriously, sleeping is the best thing ever. I'd give up food, sex, everyting for the ability to sleep forever, periodically wake up to see what time it is, then go back to sleep
