  • Summary

  • 7 audio-guided sessions.

    By now you know that getting enough sleep is one of the fundamental keys to overall health and well-being. But, achieving optimal shuteye and truly winding down at night are skills that few seem to have mastered.

    Aaptiv’s Sleep Better program includes seven classes led by meditation and mindfulness expert Jade Alexis. On day one of the program you’ll begin with ten minutes of relaxation and focus on your breath. As the week progresses you’ll graduate to a 30-minute session and incorporate techniques that train your body to release tension and prepare for deep sleep including breathwork, body scans, and yoga nidra - a type of meditative state achieved before sleep.

    This program is designed to be taken as many times through as you wish and can be referred back to as often as you need.   

    Please note: all Aaptiv audio-fitness programs, including those in your Audible library, will become unavailable after Sept 5, 2019.

Love it .....but

I love these bedtime meditations...they truly help me fall and stay asleep...I have had problems sleeping for years and this is the thing that works for me. If possible Please remove the This is Audible at the end it is not necessary and actually startled me the first time....not a criticism, just an observation and recommendation.

Couldn't make it past the first few minutes.

Not what I expected. If I wanted to meditate I don't need this. And I don't want to.

This audiobook is buggy...

I can't explain why this would happen, but this audiobook causes my Bluetooth headset to unpair every time.

The background music is disquieting

The background music is too annoying to focus on anything else. I do not recommend.

Couldn't get into it

this one was a struggle for me from the beginning. The narrator's voice and the rapid pace of each segment made it very difficult to get into a meditative state. I finally gave up and marked them all finished because I knew I wouldn't go back to them at any point.

Utterly useless

Like so many of the “freebies,” it’s worth every penny. Poorly edited and redundant, its so-called psychological techniques can’t overcome its noisiness and hocum.

redundant

i found it annoying hearing her just keep repeating "bring your awareness to" and saying each body part was still. not helpful.
