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 Thunderstorms 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. 

This is an Audible Original Podcast. Free for members. You can download all 14 episodes to your Library now.

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

It worked for me

I was put off at the start by having a recognisable famous voice (plus I didn't actually believe in the theory!) but it did help. I'm a life-long insomniac with serious health problems and chronic pain so usually still awake at 4am. This helped on the first listen.

Wrong thing completely and this crap has made me anger that he can make this crap as if us adults don't know this already. The thing I was meant to download was a women speaking with sounds in the back ground talking and helping me to sleep

Really fantastic audiobook to counteract insomnia!

This is a really wonderful, healthy and relaxing way to overcome anxiety and the daily stresses and strains that life brings with it.
It is packed full of guided meditations, expertly and soothingly natrated.
I cannot recommend this well structured and helpful free* podcast enough!

Calm voice

I love how it guides you into being present in the moment or think back onto something ...
It helps you to not worry about falling asleep as the voice is so calm that it takes me no more than 10minutes of listening to fall asleep.
I definitely recommend this for anyone who stares in the darkness whilst their worries, tasks and stress goes in front of them and they can't find themself falling asleep for houres of rowling around.

Not what it says on the tin!

Really annoyed as this was supposed to be female voice with background thunderstorms but it was actually a droning male voice that is as irritating as hell. Not happy!
