With No Effort: Some Oddly Relaxing YouTube Channels

I hope the title is not too clickbaity, although what I am going to share is a sort of playlist that has descriptions that are definite clickbait.

I listen to a lot of music and often use it to stimulate myself or to relax. As I write this piece I have "Dare" playing by The Human League which falls between stimulation and relaxation.

I have a YouTube channel with over 200 slideshows and videos. I cannot monetize it because I only have 250 subscribers and need 40,000 I think, so that is unlikely to happen. I have nearly a thousand subscribers on Instagram but they are mostly accounts with pictures of scantily clad young ladies which I block if they try to contact me, but I am ok if they just swell my numbers.

This is my YouTube channel with 220,000 views mainly due to two videos, the Christopher Lee and Nick Cave/Doctor Seuss mashup that account for over half my views.

So what is this about?

I have written about using music for relaxation and this piece focuses on Brian Eno's "Thursday Afternoon" which I often use to drift off to sleep with, playing on my CD player.

I have an Amazon Kindle, but any device that can access YouTube can be used to explore these pieces. I sometimes wanted to go to sleep listening to natural sounds, and there are many videos that will last ten hours or more, and I put them on to drift away, and the device plays until the power runs out, although I could actually plug it into a power socket and have it playing for as long as I want.

This from the Relax Melody Rain, last three hours, and this is the blurb that comes with it:

THUNDERSTORM sounds for sleeping black screen - GET over insomnia with heavy rain & thunderstorm. This is a mix of powerful sounds that are good for relaxation, medicine, children and adults. Use the sounds to fall asleep in 3 minutes. This is a great tool for stopping sleep disorders and insomnia. I will show you how to use this sound to help you feel relaxed, sleep and stay asleep for the rest of your life

But then this is followed up by mystical videos promising, wealth, health and life improvements almost instantly.

This is two hours of very relaxing sounds, but this is what it says it delivers:


Unlocking the Power of 888Hz: Health, Wealth, Miracles, and Infinite Blessings

In the realm of spiritual and metaphysical exploration, certain frequencies are believed to hold immense power and potential for transformation. One such frequency that has garnered attention is 888Hz, often hailed as the frequency of abundance, prosperity, and divine blessings. Let's delve into the significance of 888Hz and how it is associated with health, wealth, miracles, and infinite blessings.

These are often broadcast live and then recorded and made available on the channel. I have not seen any financial benefits but they are great for listening to while you drift off to sleep as there is no beat to catch your attention, just a feeling of drifting.

I assume these channels can monetize because of the sheer number of subscribers attracted by the clickbait in the title and description, but they are free and definitely relaxing.

This one tells us

Are you ready to attract unlimited love and wealth in just 10 minutes? This video will show you how to manifest abundance and prosperity in your life effortlessly.

I don't watch the video as it is just a load of bank notes, but it is a great piece to fall asleep to.


There are thousands of these on YouTube and they are free to watch and listen to and are really calming. They may contain subliminal messages, but all they have done for me is get me off to sleep.

I live you with this screenshot of a few of the recorded and live things on YouTube. Let me know if you get any extra benefits if you watch any of these.

    I love "Thunderstorm". The rest just sound like what might start ringing in your ears after a few hours in a sensory deprivation chamber, lol.

    When I was younger (and crucially, single) I almost always went to sleep with music playing. A wide variety: Mahler's 5th, Elizium by Fields of the Nephilim, a lot of Future Sound of London, some Eno and often just whatever I bought most recently. Trouble is, my wife won't have it. As for working with music on, unless I'm writing about the music in question, it has to be instrumental or in a foreign language. I find it incredibly distracting to write and listen to someone else's words at the same time. Might make an exception for sports commentary, but if it's a big game not much work gets done anyway!

    I have seen those on you tube. I stick with my 8 hour scripture YouTube Channel. I also listen to healing frequency music depending where my pain may be. When the pain is severe, my medicine or hospital it is. But the clickbait give you something that make something unattainable seem attainable. Nice story to write about, Mike.

    Your clickbaity title got me! I really like the music here, would be great for yoga and mindfulness practices at home. When I was younger and felt stressed, I would listen to hard electronic music to overwhelm my brain and get to me sleep... but these seem more appealing now! When I write, I don't think I ever do so with relaxing songs like this. Lately I am listening to heavy metal. Songs that help provoke and inspire a lot of feeling while I write are Children of the Omnissiah from Mechanicus OST, and Guts's Theme from Berserk.

    I've never worked while listening to relaxing songs... I used it before sleeping, but maybe it's time for a change...😊
