Things are easier said than done, or so the old adage goes, and we couldn't agree more. That's why we do The GOOD 30-Day Challenge (#30DaysofGOOD), a monthly attempt to live better. Our challenge for May? Sleep better.
Earlier this month, we asked you to help us put together a "sleep music" playlist. The response was overwhelming: We received hundreds of recommendations for terrific songs to relax the mind and help bring on sleep. We've chosen our favorite recommendations and compiled them as "GOOD's Sleep Better Playlist." Check out the tracks below, then listen to them via the Spotify playlist we've created.
1. "Twice" by Little Dragon
2. "In My Room" by The Beach Boys
3. "Shoot the Moon" by Norah Jones
