Sounds to help you sleep
Wednesday, 31 March · 1 min read

Listening to the sounds of nature could help you unwind and drift off more easily.

If you have trouble falling asleep, getting into a regular bedtime routine might help. Winding down before bed helps you relax and prepare your body for rest.

A calming practice you could add to your bedtime routine is listening to nature sounds. The sounds of rainfall, ocean waves and wildlife could help your mind switch off and set you up for a good night’s sleep.

Why not try experimenting with a nature soundtrack before bed?

There are loads of playlists and meditations based on nature sounds available online, many for free.
