Better mental health starts with Headspace

(upbeat music) Hi there, it's me, Alan from "Sesame Street," and you're listening to "Good Night World," a sleepcast where your friends at "Sesame Street" and Headspace Studios help you get ready for bed. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Tonight's episode is, "Elmo's Choo-Choo." Hi, it's me Alan from "Sesame Street," (bell ringing) and I'm so glad you're here. I was just walking over to visit with Elmo and it's nice to have you along. (footsteps crunching) Elmo's working on a craft project here in the play yard. He's been busy for quite a while now. Oh hey, Elmo! Alan, hi! Oh Alan, you're just in time. Just in time for what, Elmo? A ride on Elmo's choo-choo train, of course. Of course, what else? A ride on Elmo's, wait, Elmo's train? Yes, Elmo's choo-choo train. Oh, I see, you made a choo-choo train out of that empty box you asked me for from the store. (gasps) That's pretty special, Elmo. Uh-huh. Oh, when Elmo asked you for the box, Oh, Elmo said it was gonna be a surprise, so ta-da! (horns blowing) (Elmo laughing) Oh, that is a surprise. I sure wasn't expecting a train. And you did a really good job making that box look like one. Oh, thank you, Alan. Oh, Elmo worked really hard on it today. Oh, first, Elmo used markers to draw a big window in front of the box. (marker scratching) Next, Elmo glued paper plates onto the sides for wheels Elmo wanted wheels for his choo-choo train, because a real train has big metal wheels. Oh, Elmo saw that in one of his story books. Ah, good thinking. And now, Elmo's choo-choo train is ready for a ride. So last of all, Elmo made some railroad tracks, Alan. Oh, of course, because choo-choo trains ride on tracks, not on roads like cars do. What a great idea, Elmo. I see you used chalk to draw tracks here in the play yard. Uh-huh, oh now Elmo has just moved his choo-choo train over the top of the tracks and... (Elmo grunting) Uh, a little help here, Alan? Oh sure, Elmo, sorry. Thank you. That box is pretty big. I'll give you a hand. (box rustling) Put it right there on top of the tracks, Alan. Yes, right there. Pretend tracks for Elmo's pretend choo-choo train. (bells ringing) It looks like you really planned this out, Elmo. I'm impressed. What gave you the idea to make a pretend train? Well, you're never gonna believe it, Alan, but tomorrow, Elmo's going to ride a real choo-choo train! You are? That's pretty amazing! Why are you taking a train? Oh, we're visiting Elmo's granny and grandpa monster. They live far away, so Elmo's mommy and daddy, oh and Elmo too, (laughs) need to ride a train to get there. That's exciting. Well, I think you did a super job of making a...
