Nothing much happens: bedtime stories to help you sleep

iHeartPodcasts

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

Paddling on the Canal
Yesterday
Paddling on the Canal
Our story tonight is called Paddling on the Canal, and it’s a story about a quiet morning on the lake. It’s also about dragonflies and water lilies, weeping willows along the shore, a bell ringing from the back porch of the inn, and a connection point, felt with people around the world. We give to a different charity each week, and as your bedtime stories are written and recorded along the banks of the Rouge River, this week, we are giving to Friends of Rouge Park.  They work to protect, restore, and promote a natural, environmentally healthy, and culturally vibrant Rouge Park that engages the community for the benefit and enjoyment of all.  Save over $100 on Kathryn’s hand-selected wind-down favorites with the Nothing Much Happens Wind-Down Box.

Summer at the Library, Part 2

Summer at the Library, Part 2
Our story tonight is called Summer at the Library, Part 2, and it is a continuation of last week’s story, but you don’t really need to hear part one, to enjoy part two. It’s a story about a special summer program that brings littles and furry friends together at a favorite place. It’s also about red popsicles, sounding out big words, beach towels spread on the patio stones, book spread out on tables and enjoying the feeling of having something to look forward to. We give to a different charity each week, and this week, we are giving to the At-choo Foundation. This foundation is passionate about helping homeless street dogs (and cats) get the safety and urgent medical care they need.

Ladybugs & New Leaves
03-06-2024
Ladybugs & New Leaves
Our story tonight is called Ladybugs and New Leaves, and it’s a story about a day in the yard at the potting bench. It’s also about learning to read the leaves of plants to understand what they need, things found in the checkout line of the hardware store, shiny red wings and black dots and recognizing that from time to time we all need a fresh start. We give to a different charity each week, and this week, we are giving to Showers for All. The Showers For All mobile trailers provide showers and laundry to those living on the streets of Denver. Full-service bathrooms and multiple washers & dryers deliver a critical and often forgotten service to those struggling with homelessness and poverty.  Save over $100 on Kathryn’s hand-selected wind-down favorites with the Nothing Much Happens Wind-Down Box.

Tell The Bees
20-05-2024
Tell The Bees
Our story tonight is called Tell the Bees, and it is a story that so many of you have asked for. I know that the podcast has seen many of you through difficult times, and often, you’ve asked for a story that might be a balm to a heavy or grieving heart, and this is my first attempt at that. If you want to avoid any heaviness tonight, that’s understandable. Marmalade and Crumb are always there for you instead. Tell the Bees is a story about a long walk through the clover on a path toward good listeners. It’s also about a rosebush with a new home, four-leaf clovers, a house with shutters and gopher trails, and saying things aloud when you’re ready to take your finger out of the dam. We give to a different charity each week, and this week, we are giving to Wellness Together, which is working to provide integrated mental health interventions for every student who needs help every single day.
