Three podcasts that will help you fall asleep faster

Counting sheep can get a little laborious. Here are the 3 most popular podcast options that help you fall asleep fast:

1. Podcasts that are powerful sleep meditations 

If winding down is your problem, then meditation may be your best sleep medicine. From calm and melodic mantras to slow and rhythmic breathing, Sip and Om offers a daily podcast to keep it fresh. However, you may want to use the same meditation each night to train your brain to fall asleep faster.

2. Podcasts that bore you to sleep

I am not convinced that the author/narrator of these stories actually set out to create sleep-inducing podcasts, but his creations definitely will put you to sleep. This narrator has an awfully monotone voice and a seriously distracted thought process. Some long descriptions will help you lose the will to stay alive… I mean awake.

3. Podcasts that are actual bedtime stories

Various acclaimed authors tell interesting tales that will keep you glued to your mattress. If you struggle to fight the urge to get out of bed then these entertaining tales may be what you need to help you lie down long enough to actually fall asleep.

Make sure you give yourself the best chance of a good night’s sleep by starting your night out on a good mattress. Could it be that your old, uncomfortable mattress is robbing you of precious sleep? Mattresses should be replaced every 8 to 10 years. If it’s time to invest in a new bed, visit the Sealy website to see our range of mattresses.
