If readers enjoy listening to audiobooks, it is a bad audiobook selection to fall asleep. When listening, it is important to know the reader’s character type. If they can fall asleep to a good story, go for it. But if readers are the type who caught up in the book and are waiting for the next story to fall asleep, it might not be the best pick. The following are some best tips for using audiobooks at bedtime.
FIND THE DEVICE THAT WORKS BEST
A phone or a tablet is convenient because the users can get any audiobook they want from a library or through an audiobook app. They can also use a headphone or a wireless speaker to stream from the phone, so they aren’t tempted by gadget’s screen.
GOOD NARRATOR WITH A SOOTHING VOICE
The narrator is more important than the book for sleeping, so a good narrator with soothing voice can make user’s eyelids shut quickly. Many audiobooks are so great since some authors read their own books, and they often include adlibs in the written editions.
TRY AUDIOBOOK VERSIONS OF BOOKS ALREADY READ
Since kids will often fall asleep halfway through a book, it is nice to choose books they have already read. If misses a chapter or two, they can still follow the story. It really connects with a story, understand the characters, and repetition is good for a child’s intellect. Additionally, listening to a familiar audiobook is relaxing and comforting.
SET A TIMER
Most audiobook apps allow users to set a timer. They can set a timer when to turn off the audio. This feature can set different lengths of time, which can be set at the end of a chapter. This allows them to fall asleep without their book playing on too long.
AVOID CREEPY OR SUSPENSEFUL BOOKS
Parents want bedtime to sleep, so it is not the time for their kids to hear a book that is scary or suspenseful. Nobody wants a terrified kid running into their parent’s room when they tucked into bed.
For grown-ups, historical books can be great because they naturally do not have that motivating force as fiction and non-fiction bring.
LOCK THE PHONE AND LISTEN
While audiobook is playing, it can be tempting to catch up on emails and check on social media sites. What it need is lock the phone, dim the lights, and let the book do its work. While listening, actively try to sleep by relaxing the body and letting the mind focus on the book.
These tips will guide users which gives them the best try at falling asleep. Have the favorite listening device when sleeping with soothing audiobooks to listen to.
