Do you find yourself staring up at the ceiling at night, or tossing and turning wondering why your brain just won’t shut off?
If you do, you’re not alone. Trying to fall asleep can be a real struggle. Whether you have a lot on your mind or just can’t get comfortable in bed, sometimes we need a little extra help to drift off to sleep.
If you didn’t already know, Music can have a positive effect on sleep via muscle relaxation and distraction from thoughts’, and certain sounds are more beneficial to drifting off than others.
With this in mind, we’ve scoured the internet to find the best podcasts to help you fall asleep!
Sleep with Me
No sleep podcast list is complete without Sleep With Me. Known as the Sandman of sleep podcasts, this highly praised show is perfect for any insomniac or just those of us who struggle to fall asleep. In each episode, the narrator takes a random topic and fills it with extra tangents, rambling sentences, and a soothing monotone voice, making the show as incomprehensible and sleep-inducing as possible.
Deep Energy Podcast
If listening to people doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, maybe a podcast with ambient sounds will do the trick. Deep Energy does just this – Think rainstorms, streams, sunsets, drums, and ocean waves. Not only do these sounds help with meditation, but this type of ambient noise has been shown to help you fall asleep faster.
Nothing Much Happens
It’s all in the title: “Nothing Much Happens” serves up low-stakes tales for those who like bedtime stories, but are at risk of getting hooked on anything too engaging or suspenseful. Feel safe dozing off knowing you’ll miss absolutely nothing important.
Game of Drones
If you like “Sleep with Me” then we guarantee you’ll be a fan of “Game of Drones.” Recounting the events of the series and adding in copious (sometimes wonderfully irrelevant) asides mined from the books, it’s the ideal sleepy-time listen for fantasy enthusiasts—yes, even if you hated the final season.
