Why Are Bedtime Stories Good for Adults?

According to research, 35.2% of adults report sleeping less than 7 hours a night, and between 10% and 30% struggle with chronic insomnia. If you fall into either of these categories, an overactive brain at bedtime may be contributing to the problem.

Bedtime stories help to shift the brain away from racing thoughts and worries, allowing you to focus on something calming. Some doctors even think that adult bedtime stories help to decrease anxiety, stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, decrease heart rate, and lower blood pressure, all of which help prepare you for sleep.

Another reason bedtime stories may work for you is after they become part of a regular healthy bedtime routine. Our bodies like routine, especially at night time, so they know when it’s the time to switch off.
