If you’re a fan of meditation/relaxation apps like Headspace and Meditation Studio, and ALSO a fan of the dulcet voice of Bob Ross, you’re in luck. The meditation and sleep app Calm is introducing PBS fave Bob Ross’ voice as part of its Sleep Stories, using the audio from his super relaxing painting episodes to lull you into repose.
As early as I can remember, I was falling asleep watching Bob Ross beat the devil out of his brushes and make happy accidents. Even now, so many of us turn to Bob when we need to chill out. It’s one of my earliest ASMR memories too, though I didn’t have that name for it back then. (Click here to learn what that phenomenon is all about!)
If you need a reminder of just how gentle and kind Bob Ross’ words were, check out some of our favorite quotes from his show.
If you’re already using Calm, then check him out in their Sleep Stories. If not, you can snag a free trial here or find it on iTunes. And if you’re not using a meditation app at all, this might be the incentive to start seeing what they’re all about and if they can help you relax, center yourself, or just beat the insomnia blues.
