Podcasts for Relaxation and Sleep
Podcasts have become an increasingly popular medium for entertainment, education, and information sharing. But did you know that podcasts can also be a powerful tool for relaxation and promoting better sleep? With a wide variety of options available, including guided meditations, soothing nature sounds, and bedtime stories, podcasts can offer a unique and personalized way to unwind and calm the mind before bed. Whether you struggle with insomnia or simply want to improve the quality of your sleep, tuning into a relaxing podcast can help you achieve a more peaceful state of mind and prepare for a restful night’s sleep – and here are a few you can check out before bedtime tonight.
Insomnia? Mind racing at night? Worries keeping you up? Tune in for a bedtime story that lets you forget your problems and progressively gets more boring until you fall to sleep. So get in bed, press play, close your eyes, and drift off into dreamland.
Having trouble sleeping? Join Yoga and meditation teacher Kathryn Nicolai for bedtime stories where nothing much happens to help you relax and sleep peacefully. The stories are a soft landing spot for your mind. Rather than letting your brain race through the same thoughts you’ve been chasing all day, we are taking a detour to a calm and comfy place. We tell the story twice and go a bit slower the second time.
Whispered readings and ramblings for relaxation and sleeping. Includes soothing meditations, interesting stories, tranquil poems, educational Wikipedia articles, and listener feedback.
Sleep better, reduce stress and anxiety, and feel happier about your life. If you yearn for simpler calmer days, settle yourself down to explore the rich tradition of meditation for your modern life.

Boring Books for Bedtime is a weekly sleep podcast in which we calmly, quietly read something rather boring to silence the brain chatter keeping you awake.

If you’re on Team Sleepless, lie back, take a deep breath, and let us read you to rest.
