  • Summary

  • Hello Sleep's guided meditations are based on the techniques and practices of mindfulness meditation which have been scientifically investigated and found to help insomnia. Created by meditation entrepreneur and author, Rohan Gunatillake, Hello Sleep's straightforward meditations will help quiet the busiest of minds and encourage the transition to sleep. Comprising two introductory episodes and twelve standalone guided meditations, Hello Sleep allows you to find what works best for you, helping you regain restful sleep.

    This version of Hello Sleep features a UK Female voice with Cicadas in the background. However, if you would like to change your choices, Hello Sleep allows you to choose different voices (UK Female, UK Male, US Female, UK Male) and different background (Cicadas, Silence, Thunderstorms, Waves, White Noise) to customise the meditations to your exact preferences.

    This series was produced by Rohan Gunatillake and is narrated by Rex Anderson, Sam Deveraux, Stacey Glemboski, and Lucy Gunatillake.

    As an podcast - free for members - when you add Hello Sleep to your library, you'll get 14 episodes, including 12 meditations.

    Please note, episodes 12, 13 & 14 deliberately contain no background sound effects.

    In this meditation, you will be guided through a technique designed to encourage relaxation called a Body Sweep.

    With this method, you scan your body, starting from the face and ending at your toes, noticing any tension and giving yourself permission to relax.

Guaranteed Sleep, Everytime!

I've tried many sleep meditation and hypnosis apps and videos before so was a bit sceptical. I needn't have been! These 10 minute audio books work everytime.
I love the fact that you can choose between male and female narrator and background sound. The cicadas one works perfectly for me.
All very user friendly. Thank you!

Chapters in wrong order

Rrasonably relaxing listening except the chapters are all jumbled up so slightly jolting to go from relaxation to introduction and bounce around.

This really works

I find this relaxing. I've listened multiple times and easily fallen asleep after 1 or 2 chapters.

Silly

Clichéd. I had to stop listening because I was laughing at the ham delivery and cheesey content. If you don't have enough HR in your life then this is for you.
