The Sleepy Tale of Samuel Whiskers (Read 3X Slower and Slower)
Send me a text message to let me know if you’re enjoying the show! Welcome back sleepy heads! Tonight we have a super sleepy bedtime story by Beatrix Potter called "The Tale of Samuel Whiskers". This slow storytelling is sleep inducing because the story's pace gradually slows down which helps reduce stimulation and promotes restful sleep. This sleepy narration makes the perfect bedtime companion to gently guide you into a peaceful sleep.  With the first round of slow reading, you will enjoy the storytelling at a comfortable pace, perfect for the initial relaxation. With the second round of reading the pace slows down, easing you further down into a tranquil state. And finally, the third and last round of reading, you will experience the slowest rendition, ideal for falling deep into sleep. So go ahead and press play, close your eyes, and let the gentle world of Samuel Whiskers carry you all the way to dreamland. Sweet dreams and happy listening!Your friend,Joanne Attributions1.

Fairytale Sleep Story: The Tears of Prunella
Send me a text message to let me know if you’re enjoying the show! Welcome back! Tonight we have a fairytale sleep story called 'The Tears of Prunella' by Evelyn Sharp. In this dreamy fairytale, we follow a young lad who is deaf due to an enchantment bestowed upon him by the whims of fairyland. This enchantment separates him from the world he so dearly wishes to be a part of and, with unwavering determination, he seeks to become a real boy—not for the sake of hearing the songs of birds or the rustle of the wind, but to hear the tears of his princess and offer the comfort that only true friendship can provide. As always, the story begins with a short 'settling in relaxation' followed by the storytelling. The soft background music will continue for short while after the storytelling to help you transition to sleep. Enjoy and sweet dreams!Your friend,Joanne :)Attributions:Intro music 'Tranquility Lane' by Dawn Dawn Dawn via Epidemic SoundStory music 'Adrift' by Christopher Lloyd ClarkThe Tears of Prunella (from the book 'The Other Side of the Sun) by Evelyn Sharp & resides in the public domainBecome a Drift Off Premium member today and receive: intro free listening to all episodesNO ADS or sponsorship announcementsaccess 2 monthly bonus episodes get early access and listen first to upcoming episodesexclusive access to full length audiobooks for your enjoyment and relaxation *You can subscribe via Apple Podcasts OR using the link driftoff.supercast.comFeel free to drop by on the podcast website to learn more about it!https://www.driftoffpodcast.com Content Warning Disclaimer: This podcast is a sleep aid for adults.
