Meditation can be hard and, TBH, kinda boring. Luckily, that's not the end-all, be-all of ways to improve your mindfulness and de-stress. First, there were adult coloring books. Now, there are bedtime stories designed (for grown-ups!) to act as natural sleep aids.

You might be thinking, "I don't need a bedtime story, I need to fall asleep!" But here's the thing: The first step in getting good night's sleep is being in the right mindset. If you're tired, relaxed, and ready for sleep you're way more likely to fall asleep within a reasonable time each night. If it's one of those nights where you're tossing and turning and can't shut your mind off, a bedtime story can be the perfect distraction to lull you into relaxation.

Use this video to experience the stress-reducing power of a well-crafted story. Sleep expert Natasha Kerry will guide you on a soothing journey to help have the best night's sleep of your life. Get comfy in bed and press play.
