Not getting enough sleep is a common issue among almost all adults these days. In many cases, it’s not the lack of wanting sleep that’s the issue but how to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night that’s the biggest concern. Recently, I’ve seen (and even used) people trying sleep meditation to fall asleep quickly and get quality rest through the night.
However, even with that, many have been struggling. One of the tricks I’ve used in the past and continue to do so even today is listening to a podcast when I go to bed. I know, I know. You’re thinking, “How can listening to someone talking when you’re trying to sleep be supposed to help?”
Trust me on this one, sleep podcasts have been proven through research to help you sleep quicker, and better, and have a night of quality rest. If you don’t trust my word, then trust the data!
If you’re struggling with getting a full night of sleep, then I have a list of the best sleep podcasts for you.
These podcasts are designed to help you fall asleep, and I hope that you’ll find your best sleep partner here on this list!

Are you an insomniac or just can’t fall asleep at night? Or is your mind incapable of staying quiet during the quiet hours of the night? Well, Sleep With Me is one of the best sleep podcasts that you can tune in to.

2. Nothing Much Happens
Get ready for the best bedtime podcast for adults as a meditation teacher and yogi Kathryn Nicolai takes you for a relaxing sleep ride. The bedtime stories on Nothing Much Happens are as the name suggests – soft and boring enough to help you drift off.
The best part of this sleep podcast is that you don’t have to truly pay attention to the stories and if you miss somehow, there’s always a second part that goes slow.
