This soothing series cracks the code to building habits for better, more rejuvenating sleep. The Headspace Guide to Sleep may not cover ground-breaking secrets or new sleep-saving tricks, but this series, which gathers research-backed information and proven strategies into seven, short episodes, makes tackling sleep challenges feel possible. The animations are modern and stylish, with human-ish forms and soft, curved-edged objects floating across the screen. The music entrances and Eve's voice is velvety smooth, creating a relaxed atmosphere for viewers. The meditations themselves are audio-based, though for viewers who want to keep eyes open, a simple, slowly evolving image remains on screen throughout.

Parents concerned about older teens' poor sleep habits, how stress impacts kids' sleep, or device use and rest, could use this series as a way to work on better sleep as a family, though convincing, cajoling, or bribing may be required to part teens from their preferred night-time activities. Or maybe you'll get lucky, and the mindfulness strategies introduced may spark interest in a building a meditation practice, so it's good to know about the Headspace Guide to Meditation series, too, as it makes a great companion to this sleep guide.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
