After hearing all the news on television about the increasing price of crude oil, the increasing unemployment rate or some unpleasant storm coming into your neighborhood, one can sure end up in a foul mood. Add to it the pressure of your workplace, your relationship problems and family problems; and you will undoubtedly be out of sorts especially if you have a low-coping mechanism. Maybe you just need a break or a period of peace and serenity. It is extremely common today to experience stress from different sources it may be at your own home, work place and even just out on the streets. It is extremely hard to cope with this stress.

Though there are many different ways of relieving stress these days, one of the most powerful and cheapest ways is by means of calm relaxation and some breathing exercises. Are you in search of a fast way of relieving stress? A little known technique of relieving stress is through the use of binaural beat entrainment. Sounds complicated right? Well actually this is not a terribly complicated way of relieving stress. Additionally, binaural beat entrainment not only relieves stress but it also induces sleep for those with insomnia, improves learning and creativity and recharges your emotional batteries causing you to be refreshed.

But what is a binaural beat? Binaural beats are auditory brain stem responses caused when you listen to sounds from both of your ears using headphones. These sounds are not normal sounds the sound is composed of two tones with one tone having a higher frequency and the other having a slightly lower frequency resulting in a slightly out of phase tone. You may perceive it sort of like a warbling sound or pulsating effect. If the tones are in phase with each other, then it will not result in this effect. Also if there is a sizable difference between the frequencies of the tones, then it will result in just an ordinary sound with two tones playing. As you may imagine this sound is not real entertaining listening. That is why binaural beat publishers create sounds like that of the rain, waterfalls, bells, gongs and other sounds where the beats are hidden by an additional sound resulting in the listener’s unawareness of the beat but still having the same effect on the brain.

Today, software programmers have created computer programs that can be downloaded and installed on your computer so that you can easily create your own binaural beat recording. Also available are small sized electronic gadgets that can produce binaural beats. You can even use your iPod or mp3 players just by downloading recordings of these binaural beats. Binaural beat entrainment has lots of benefits to provide. It aids in meditation, relaxation and even self hypnosis.
