5 YouTube videos that will send you right to sleep

Better than counting sheep.

CAN’T SLEEP? WE’RE here to help. Well, the creators of these YouTube videos are.

1. Listen to some rain

Living in Ireland, we’re sure you’re probably used to this. But nothing beats the soothing sound of falling rain when you’re cosy in bed, so here’s a one hour and 30 minute storm in case you need to fake it.

2. Or crickets

Prefer more of a summer vibe? Turn on your electric blanket and listen to crickets chirping for 37 minutes.

This can also be used when someone cracks a particularly bad joke.

3. Listen to the burly tones of Samuel L. Jackson reading Go the F**k to Sleep

It contains bad language, obviously, but Samuel L. Jackson reading the mock children’s book is enough to terrify you into sleep submission.

4. Have a braingasm

ASMR stands for ‘autonomous sensory meridian response’, which is basically short for braingasm. It’s a relativity new phenomenon, which involves people doing stuff really really gently to create sounds that trigger certain stimuli to cause some serious brain sensations.

Take this one, playing with a box of crayons.

The Water Whispers has millions of hits, producing relaxing sounds like typing on a computer keyboard, lighting matches, or running a pen over newspaper pages.

We don’t know either, but it’s kind of like someone playing with your hair. You can actually get a virtual ASM haircut which is as trippy as virtual trips go.

5. Guided meditation

Become more in tune with your body through this guided meditation. Feel the warmth of the blood in your fingertips. Oh eerr.

This guy sounds like he might murder us, but make sure we’re sleeping soundly beforehand.
