Bedtime Stories About the Great Outdoors

by BetterSleep
Jul 19 • 4 min read

Busy minds need to get a good rest. If you find yourself lying awake at night, a simple and enjoyable way to switch off is by listening to bedtime stories. While you probably have fond memories of your parents reading you a bedtime story, you may be skeptical about whether it would work now that you’re an adult.

But, just like listening to music or meditating, bedtime stories work by distracting the mind from worries and calming down the brain so that it can transition into a peaceful slumber.

One study by the University of Sussex found that reading for just 6 minutes reduced stress by as much as 68%. Therefore, it makes sense that having a story read to you would have a similar effect.
