Description

Having trouble sleeping?  Join Yoga and meditation teacher Kathryn Nicolai for bedtime stories where nothing much happens to help you relax and sleep peacefully. The stories are a soft landing spot for your mind. Rather than letting your brain race through the same thoughts you’ve been chasing all day, we are taking a detour to a calm and comfy place. We tell the story twice and go a bit slower the second time.

You can find our book, "Nothing Much Happens," in over 20 languages. Request your local bookseller to shelve it: https://bit.ly/Nothing-Much-Happens

I've dabbled in sleep stories and sounds for a few years now but never found my *perfect* sleepy sound.. until now. These stories and her voice are so effective, that it's absolutely true what she says - it WILL get easier to fall asleep/fall asleep quicker the more you use the podcast. That's not only true, but after just a couple months use, sometimes I don't even make it through the introduction! Absolute lifesaver for having a newborn too and getting to sleep quickly when able to sleep!

This is the best sleep podcast ever. I never make it past 10 minutes into story. It's become part of my nighttime ritual. I hope she never stops making them lol

I am also a Lilac thief. Living in that old farmhouse among the lilacs would be a joy! Thank you for this lovely story. PS. I would plant some peonies and hydrangea as well 😊
