The meditation app Calm has come out with Sleep Stories, bedtime tales for adults, reports the Daily Mail.

They include both original tales, devised by mindfulness experts, and slow-tempo recitals from classic children’s novels.

Such tales include The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Anderson and The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams.

They are read by actors such as Anna Acton, known for her roles in Doctors, Casualty and EastEnders.
