My name is Teddy and I enjoy bringing the Bore you to Sleep Podcast to listeners everywhere.
Like a lot of people, I've had trouble getting to sleep and have found that what works for me are boring stories that aren't exciting enough to keep me awake.
On the podcast, I read old books from the public domain. The Sleep Stories I read are not overly interesting and I'm careful to not put much personality in the reading. You might even call my reading style somewhat boring.
Quite often, it is those racing thoughts that keep you awake at night. The goal of the podcast is to distract you enough from these thoughts while not being interesting enough to keep you awake.
What are Sleep Stories and how do you use them? It's very simple. They are stories that you will read when you go to bed. They distract you from wakefulness and allow your body to naturally do the rest for you.
When you're trying to go to sleep the less effort you exert the better. Don't go to bed like you are on a mission because your body will act like it and as a result keep you awake.
Less is more is the mindset. If you think "I am here to rest and whatever happens will be" your body will take care of the rest. Feel your body relax and your eyes grow heavy as the monotone hum of sleep stories waft into your ears,
