You know how some people fall asleep as soon as their heads hit the pillow? I’ve never been one of those people.
It takes me a long time to fall asleep. Often I read myself to sleep, occasionally falling asleep with the light on and a book in my hand.
But about a month ago, I had a light bulb moment.
I love my Kindle fire. And it plays music.
I searched on Amazon, and found a few meditation tracks that I can play on my kindle and fall asleep to. It’s incredibly helpful!
After buying a couple of “help falling asleep” individual tracks, I bought a full album.
If you have a full album of material, you can just hit play and nod off. The Kindle enters sleep mode after a few minutes, so it’s not using a ton of electricity. And when the album is done, it stops playing.
I also bought a “white noise” album – the kind of thing you’d hear at a spa. My cats aren’t fond of the rain tracks, but it works well too.
Audio books could probably also be used in this way, though I think I’d get caught up in the story and not fall asleep.
One more win for the Kindle team!
