Podcasts to help you sleep


With all the talk of a pandemic, climate change and economic uncertainty, it's no wonder that so many of us are tossing and turning at night. Distract yourself from racing thoughts with these calming podcasts.  

Bedtime stories
Why should bedtime stories be reserved for just the kids? Sleepy by independent American radio producer Otis Gray reads popular classics like Alice in Wonderland and lulls listeners to sleep with his rich husky voice.  

If you're more inclined towards female vocals, try Nothing Much Happens by yoga teacher Kathryn Nicolai who narrates her simple short stories on rotation until you fall asleep. The beauty of them being short and repeated means that you don't risk staying awake in fear of missing the plot details. 

Already a fan of meditation? Try The Daily Meditation Podcast hosted by Mary Meckley. Each episode features a different theme, from managing anxiety to creating better relationships, so you can opt for topics that suit you best. 

Soothing sounds
For those delightful brain tingles caused by ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response), try Sleep Whispers: a podcast of whispered breathy ramblings and readings with faint classical music. The topics, if you can even make them out, are deliberately unmemorable to send you off to sleep, while the whispering is strangely pleasurable. 

Don't like sleeping to someone's voice? The Sleep section in Calm features a series of relaxing soundscapes including camp fires, crickets and whales to take you off to la-la land, while the Sleep Meditation Podcast also offers an array of white noise from the predictable roar of ocean waves and pitter patter of rain, to the distinct sounds of the "Himalayan wind". 

And, of course, you can't underestimate the very foundation of good sleep - your mattress! Shop our range of five star-rated mattresses for the dreamiest sleep.
