Podcasts: The New Bedtime Stories

Everyone has their own bedtime routine and methods of falling asleep. Some of require complete silence, while others need some kind of noise, such as music or the white noise of a fan. Listening to podcasts is another excellent method of relaxing and falling asleep.

Some elements of a great podcast to fall asleep to include a soothing voice, soft music, ambient noise, and calming stories that aren’t too exciting. No one wants to get riled up about politics or get into an intense storyline right before bed!  Here are a few of our favorite bedtime podcasts to help you drift off into dreamland:

Sleep With Me

Sleep With Me is specially designed to put you to sleep. The host, Dearest Scooter, tells meandering tales in a lulling, monotone voice that will have you snoozing in no time. This is one of the most popular bedtime podcasts and has quite the following. Check out this review from a fan on Patreon:

“I often spend a full day at work and come home to work more. By the time I get to bed at 11pm I used to find it so hard to wind down. Your podcast has been so great in helping me fall asleep at a reasonable time…”

Sleep Whispers

We’ll admit that we were definitely skeptical about Sleep Whispers. Whispering can make us feel a bit uneasy, because it seems like we’re not supposed to hear what is being said! However, we gave it a shot and it’s definitely a helpful podcast for falling asleep. The host, Harris, reads stories in a rhythmic whisper. It’s relaxing and will definitely help you fall asleep!

Sleep and Relax ASMR

ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It refers to that tingling sensation you feel on your neck and down your spine that’s often associated with euphoria. Sleep and Relax ASMR is an audio experience designed to stimulate that euphoric feeling and help you relax. The episodes include a combination of whispers, gentle voices, soft music, and ambient noise to help you drift off to sleep.
