  • 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.

great audiobook but...

so I find the body sweep section gets me to sleep before it ends but that last section and have only listened to that section for months bo I thought I best see what the other sections are like... the secton called endings... what a way to wake you up! I have drifted off to sleep and all of a sudden I here the creepiest string noises ever! I woke up thinking I was in the TV show Grimm.

Basically, I highly recommend this audiobook but maybe set the timer to finish before that last section.

Skip the introduction short episodes

skip the first 2 short episodes with the guys voice that's annoying but the rest with the woman is really good I was asleep quite quickly and shall listen again.
There are other background noises available and after the guys introducing it it does go to a female voice

No thanks

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

Puts me to sleep

Most importantly it works 99 percent of times. The soothing voice and the background thundershower is very relaxing.

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!
