The Benefits of Bedtime Stories for Adults
How can Bedtime Stories Positively Affect your Sleep Schedule
Bedtime stories are often stereotyped to be a thing only kids can benefit from, but believe it or not, grown-ups also need their daily dose of adult-themed stories in order to relax and calm their minds.
It is time for you to break this stereotype, and add "bedtime storytime" to your night routine. Without further ado, let's get to know the great benefits of bedtime stories.
1-Reduce stress and prepare your brain for sleep
Reading a story or listening to an audiobook before going to sleep is a therapeutic way to help your brain get lost in the story. As adults, audiobooks and podcasts help us forget about the pressure that we've endured throughout the day. Also, according to research done by the University of Sussex, reading for at least six minutes before sleeping can reduce our stress level by 68%. Imagine letting our minds float by passively listening to someone else read to us can do for our nighttime routines. Imagine if the narrator had a calming voice. An ultra-sexy one works as well!
2- Bedtime Stories are Easier to Read than Books/Novels
Have you ever tried reading a book before going to sleep, but your brain was way too tired to comprehend what the author was trying to say?
You don't have to worry about that with bedtime stories, they are very simple to figure out and your brain won't need to try hard in order to understand the concept. Even if you miss a part of the story, it is easier to catch up compared to a novel or a book.
If you still find it really exhausting to read anything before bed, you can try podcasts or audiobooks. Listening to a podcast/audiobook has the same benefit as reading and will help you sleep much faster.
3- ASMR and Bedtime Stories
ASMR or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response is a technique used to reduce stress and achieve a state of bliss and a sense of security through the consistency of sound.
A great way to trigger ASMR is through listening to bedtime stories with a calm and soothing voice. Thankfully, you can find a variety of YouTubers who have helped many people in achieving ASMR by performing a myriad of tasks such as eating, brushing, tapping, and simply speaking in whispering tones. Nite Stories was created as a go-to for listening to bedtime stories with an erotic approach.
4- Influence your Dreams (in a good way)
What's a better way to have happy dreams than listening to a bedtime story with a happy ending? Fairy tales always finish off with the main character getting what they wanted, so it is a positive approach to have good dreams, especially if you suffer from nightmares or sleep paralysis. Think about what super sexy stories can do for adults wanting to wind down from the stresses of the day. Oh, think of the sweet sweet dreams!
The Bottom Line
In short, bedtime stories are not only good for kids, but they are also considered a therapeutic method to deal with sleep problems for adults.
