Sleep is central to every part of our lives, and a good night's sleep begins by putting aside the day's worries. But in today's technology-saturated world, saying goodnight to the day is harder than ever. Allow author Arianna Huffington (Thrive, The Sleep Revolution) to guide you to a peaceful night's slumber as she performs Goodnight Smartphone: a classic tale reborn for the modern age, when the hardest thing to say goodnight to is not the moon but our phones, our email, our social media, our always-on digital selves.

During a visit to Audible to speak about the benefits of sleep, Arianna joked about what a wonderful book Goodnight Moon is and asked why there isn't a version for adults: "Goodnight cares of the day, goodnight worries about tomorrow, goodnight laptop!" she exclaimed. Soon after, Goodnight Smartphone was born. Listen as Arianna adapts one of the most notable bedtime stories for the modern age, and learn more about her daily sleep regimen in her introduction. Exclusively written for Audible, available only in audio. Free until April 16, 2017.

Inspired by the classic children's story, this audiobook is a playful and relaxing guide to help you transition from the worries of a stressful day to a good night's sleep, and you can hear it only on Audible.

Quick Thoughts: I almost feel like this is a cheat book but her take on the Goodnight story has some great ideas on what to turn off at least an hour before you go to bed!!! I really need to read her longer book πŸ™‚

    I totally agree on this one. I find it hard sometimes to take my mind off things I need to do or want to look up while trying to relax and read at night. I need to start leaving my ipad in the other room.

    So I saw that cover and was like, “Is Felicia reviewing Good Night Moon?” LoL! My kids both years have loved that book, so I was intrigued. Now I’m super intrigued – knowing it’s what we as adults should dy alo to get to bed. After listening to the sample, I already know I CAN’T do one thing suggested – I can’t take my electronics out of the room since my cell phone is also my alarm to wake up in the morning…. I suppose I could use an oldfashioned alarm clock again lol!
