Sixteen-year-old Clarens Seignon, from Charlestown High School, has a tried-and-true way to drift off into dreams after a long day.
“I listen to music while sleeping because it helps me relax,” says Seignon, noting that his snoozy genres range from reggae to classical.
Teens are notorious for not getting enough sleep. Many turn to songs to help them slip into slumber.
“I listen to gospel and soul music,” says Chandler Venable, 16, from Charlestown High. “It helps me ease off after a long day and makes me calm.”
For 16-year-old Skyla Tracy, of Charlestown High, it’s sadder tunes -- like “Break of Dawn “ by Nelson Freitas -- that hold the key to flowing into zzzs.
“It helps me fall asleep faster,” says Tracy, “and it also helps clear my mind of things, like school work.”
