  • 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.

VERY GOOD

I really enjoy listening to these. They help me to relax and fall asleep easier! I would highly recommend this to my friends and family. Also the audible introduction is really loud and wakes me up at the end, could you please fix this?

Wake better

Most Sleep Better episodes weren't calming or relaxing for me. The background music was just terrible except for may be for two episodes or so. The tone of the instructor, Jade Alexis, did not have that calming and soothing effect I was looking for and instead felt monotonous, especially after having listened to audio books from audible sleep collection and other wonderful authors and narrators who specifically wrote and narrated for sleep time.

In these seven Sleep Better episodes, the way of body scan meditation differed between episodes. Like right arm followed by right leg in one then, right hand followed by left hand in the other and a different order in another episode. I found it annoying since the nature of body scan meditation is still same so why not just follow a comforting routine. Routines are anyway good and hygienic for sleep quality and quantity.

Overall, I am surprised at my own will power to have listened to all seven episodes, one each night, for a week, though I will never put myself through this again. I am really glad this is over and done! Yay!🙂

The background music is disquieting

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