Sleep Stories are designed to help our users fall into a restful sleep while listening to a variety of enjoyable stories about everything from the Sierra Nevada to magical waterfalls. Our stories help you transition from the hustle and bustle of daily life to the calm of the evening. We even have a nap category if you're looking for a quick rest.
We offer a variety of categories including 'Fiction,' 'Nature,' and 'Music' with stories read by over 50 different narrators. We even have some stories that were created to induce ASMR (Autonomous sensory meridian response), a reaction that some people experience when exposed to certain auditory stimuli.
You can seamlessly listen to hours of our most popular Sleep Stories with our curated Sleep Playlists. Each playlist is about 3-4 hours long, and some, like our Exploring Europe playlist, include a soundscape at the end.
Sleep Stories can be found under the 'Sleep' button of the 'Discover' menu in the Calm app, and you can select from a variety of categories to find the story just right for lulling you to sleep!
What other tools do you offer to help with sleep?
Our Sleep Sound library has a vast array of soothing soundscapes and nature scenes designed to help you sleep. Choose from relaxing rainstorms, to ocean waves, to white noises like fans or static to brown noises like the low roar of strong waterfalls, plus many more. With almost a hundred different options, Calm's Soundscape library has something for everyone, whether you're looking to relax, focus or fall asleep.
We also offer a variety of relaxing breathing exercises and sleep meditations to help you calm your mind and drift to sleep.
