Why is the sound of fire so soothing for sleep?
The ambiance from a fireplace is a great way to unwind , relax and can help you sleep better at night. This effect likely has to do with the evolution of the human species. If you have ever sat around a campfire with friends or settled in for an evening in front of the fireplace, you know the effect it has. The warmth and the sound are soothing and calming, but according to science, the effect goes well beyond physical sensations.
A study of the effects of fire sounds on people found that the crackling noises reduce blood pressure. In other words, it really does induce relaxation. The researchers hypothesize that this effect could be a result of evolution. As humans evolved, social connections made around the campfire became necessary for survival. Those who stayed around the fire to make those connections thrived and survived. This could be the underlying reason we respond to fire, but it’s not certain. The relaxation effect could also be a result of cultural conditioning. Either way, the effect is real and can help you sleep better.
