Bedtime Stories About Magical Items

by BetterSleep
Jul 23 • 5 min read

If you’re like millions of others, ending your days scrolling through social media or getting lost down the Netflix rabbit hole, you may find the quality of your sleep is affected. The blue light from screens blocks the sleep hormone melatonin from being released, making it hard to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Developing a quality bedtime routine is proven to help you get a good night’s sleep. And bedtime stories are one way to help you shift down a gear, calm racing thoughts, and set yourself up for a peaceful slumber.

Why Listening to Stories Better Than Reading Them?

Firstly, you can turn the light off to listen, encouraging melatonin to be released. Secondly, reading is an active task, requiring you to hold the book and actively use your brain. By listening to a story, your body and mind can relax.

Also, as we prepare for sleep, our hearing is the last sense to shut down. And just like listening to a story as a child, you feel calm, secure, and relaxed, which is the ideal state to drop off to sleep.
