Better mental health starts with Headspace

(quirky music) Hi there. It's me, Alan, from "Sesame Street" and you're listening to "Goodnight, World!" a sleepcast where your friends at Sesame Street and Headspace Studios help you get ready for bed. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Tonight's episode is- Abby Cadabby and Rudy Under the Stars. (birds singing) (footsteps thumping) Anytime you take a walk down Sesame Street, you're sure to meet a friend or two. Hi, it's me, Alan. I'm so happy you're here. Alan! And I think we're about to meet two more friends right now. Alan, Alan! Alan! That's my name, all right. Hi there, Rudy. Or should I say, Rudy, Rudy, Rudy? (Rudy and Alan laugh) Ah, and your big sister Abby is here with you, too. Hello, Abby. What brings you two out here? It's almost time to get ready for bed. Yeah, it is. But Rudy couldn't wait until tomorrow to show you something special, Alan. And mommy said we could bring it out to you. Yes, I see her smiling at us through the window there. So you two have something you wanted to share with me? You look pretty excited about it, Rudy. Oh yeah. I really wanted you to have it, Alan. Right now. Goodness.

A nature journal, huh? Oh, that is pretty special. Mm-hm. Rudy and I made it during our camping trip. You see, the pages were out empty when we got it. Oh. Then, we filled it up with words and pictures of all the things we saw in nature during our camping trip. And all the cool things we did. So, so, so cool. Oh, that's right. You went camping this week with your fairy and monster families in fairytale land, right? Yeah, the Three Little Bears let us camp in their backyard in the woods where there are lots and lots of trees. It was amazing. We all slept outside, Alan, all night. (giggles) Whoa, that is pretty amazing. Then we walked all day in the woods. That's right, we walked on trails in the woods all day looking at nature. That all sounds really exciting. And I think it's very kind of you to share your nature journal with me. Yeah, we thought you might wanna read it tonight at bedtime, especially the parts about the nighttime and the stars. Oh, what a nice idea. Let's take a look. (pages flipping) I wrote about some of the things we saw and my mommy and stepdaddy Freddy helped a little and Rudy drew some pictures. Yeah. Oh, there's one with lots and lots of stars. That must've been a lot of work. You drew so many stars in that picture. And in the tent, when we turned our flashlights off, it was so dark that...
