let me tell you a story...
We all know that sleep comes when you're not trying to fall asleep. Many use sleep meditation as a way of calming the mind. However, not everyone enjoys meditation. This is why I decided to also offer bedtime stories on my YouTube channel and my podcast as an alternative for those who just can't meditate. Bedtime stories for grown ups can offer a pleasant distraction for your mind to focus on rather than your usual worries and anxious thoughts that keep you lying awake at night.
For many, listening to a bedtime story conjures cozy childhood memories of being lulled to sleep by a comforting voice reading us our favorite bedtime story. For others, listening to bedtime stories offers an opportunity to nurture their inner child who perhaps wasn't read to at bedtime while growing up and this can be quite healing. Either way, bedtime stories can feel nurturing while helping you unwind and ease into a restful night sleep.
