Flare Partners with Calm App to provide a better night’s Sleep

From the #1 Health app in the world comes a guide to a better night’s sleep.

Flare Audio has teamed up with co-founder of the world-renowned Calm app, Michael Acton-Smith, to celebrate the launch of his new book, The Magic of Sleep.

Sleep is crucial for good health. It benefits our mental health through sharper focus, more creative potential, better performance, reduced stress and overall happiness boost. It also aids our physical health with reduced inflammation, lower blood pressure and more energy.

As the most active time for our brains and the most important element to a calmer, happier life, sleep has become the topic of our times. But so many of us struggle to fall, and stay, asleep.

The makers of Calm are the absolute experts on how people around the world actually fall asleep. Drawing on the success of Calm, and the data they have on how people use the app at night, comes the ultimate handbook for healthy sleeping.

 Launched October 24th, this beautifully designed book is packed with facts about sleep through history, bedtime stories for adults, pre-bedtime recipes and life-changing tips. The Magic of Sleep will tell you everything you ever needed to know about sleep but were too tired to ask.

Calm has partnered with Flare Audio to help get the most out of this brilliant book.  Sometimes it’s hard to switch off and concentrate on what you’re reading. Flare can help you immerse yourself without distraction by using Flare Isolate ear protectors. They’ll help you block out annoying external sound by ‘turning down’ the volume around you. Then, when you’re done, pop in your Flare Sleeep or Sleeep Flex ear plugs to get some peace and put what you’ve read to practice.

(Ps. Make sure you don’t lose either pair by storing in the Flare carry pouch or clip-able capsule).

Calm is the #1 Health & Fitness app in the world. The app includes hundreds of Sleep Stories, guided meditations, Masterclasses, Music, Nature Scenes, Calm Body and more. Their popular Sleep Stories feature guest readers such as ‘friend of Flare’ Stephen Fry and actor Matthew McConaughey.



Calm has given Flare Audio five copies of The Magic of Sleep. We’re giving away a book, a pair of Isolate Mini ear protectors and a pair of Sleeep Flex ear plugs to five lucky winners, to get you on the road to a perfect nights sleep.
