For people without insomnia, the time to go to bed is a pleasure: that sweet moment when you slide into the sheets and cosy up in your pajamas…but…wait a minute…what’s that? It’s the sound of the clock ticking and you are still wide awake.
On the other hand, if you are part of the rising number of people who are no stranger to insomnia, this article can help. We have put together a list of podcasts aimed at relaxing you and help you fall asleep and they range from simple meditations, grown-up bedtime stories to chill out tones.
Here’s MARIALMA’s list of 10 podcasts to help you overcome insomnia.

His stories and the tone of his super soothing tone of voice make a great combination and send you extra sleepy-time vibes.
Not being biased in any way, but here’s another one by the godfather of sleepness nights, Drew Ackerman. Using the same method as in Sleep with me, but instead of telling bedtime stories and relaxing exercises…he’s doing Games of Thrones Recaps.
If you are a fan of the show and you’re struggling to get to sleep, then you have to try this one. If you are not a fan and you have not seen a single episode of the show, even better: you’ll find it so boring that you’ll be asleep in no time.
If you are counting sheep until 4 am due to any anxiety or stress that you might be feeling,you may want to check out Mary Meckley’s podcast. In the daily meditation podcast, she offers short, guided meditations that have a generic theme and are all intended to relax and soothing you.
Insomnia, be gone! Experience the super silky voice of the New Yorker’s fiction editor reading into your ear, excerpts from famous pieces of fiction and then have a discussion session with all her mates.
