How You Can Give Back While You’re Sleeping

Audible's new sleep meditations and stories help you recharge — and help support struggling communities, too.

Right now there are millions of people across the world struggling to sleep. In fact, nearly 77% of Americans have revealed that the coronavirus outbreak has negatively impacted their rest at night. Whether it is the news, the physical isolation, or worrying about a sick loved one (or the possibility of getting sick ourselves) — it is no surprise that so many are struggling. But studies also show that prioritizing good sleep is essential to boosting immunity, easing anxiety and overall mental well-being. 

Audible and Thrive Global have come together to make it a little easier to drift off at night — by bringing you exclusive, original audio sleep experiences to help you recharge whenever you need. From guided meditations and bedtime stories from superstar musicians like Diddy and Nick Jonas to sound baths and Microsteps for better sleep — these free resources are designed to help you get some rest during this difficult time. 

What’s more, science has shown that the act of giving back also helps to alleviate stress As a part of this initiative, Audible and Thrive Global will be donating meals daily through Newark Working Kitchens and #FirstRespondersFirst. In collaboration with José Andrés’s World Central Kitchen (WCK) and Marcus Samuelsson, the program offers free, daily meal delivery service for Newark residents and first responders in need.
