Now you can add guided meditations for sleep to any Sleep Sound by opening the skill and then saying "Guided Sleep On". Now when you play your favorite sound, Sleep Sounds will play a relaxing meditation with your chosen sound playing in the background. Once the meditation ends, your sound will continue to play all night.
For many people, playing sleep music or soothing sounds by themselves is not enough to keep the mind from racing and continuing to worry about the stresses of the day. Guided meditations are designed specifically to relax the mind. They can help put those thoughts away for the night and prepare your body to get the rest it needs. Often the meditations encourage you to focus on your breathing and your body feelings or positions. This allows your heartrate to slow and your blood pressure to drop. This signals your mind and body to transition into a state of relaxation and eventually sleep.
The Guided Sleep meditations in Sleep Sounds use all of these techiques to help you get the best sleep possible.
Remember, to enable Guided Sleep, first open the Sleep Sounds skill and then say "Guided Sleep On". Then play your favorite sleep sounds as you normally would. To disable Guided Sleep, say "Guided Sleep Off" after opening the skill.
