MEDIA REVIEWS
Nicolai has nearly two decades of experience as a yoga and meditation teacher. She also hosts the popular podcast, Nothing Much Happens, where she narrates soothing bedtime stories for adults that-combined with her calming tone and carefully interwoven mindfulness techniques-quickly lull listeners to sleep. Her first book features sixteen new stories never aired on the podcast, along with whimsical illustrations, easy-to-make recipes for healthy comfort food, crafting exercises and unique meditation guides. Basically, it's a calming tome to pick up before bed to ensure a restful night's sleep. * Pure Wow *
A lovely book to help calm your mind when sleep is evading you * Westerly Sun *
A charming collection of short almost-stories intended as an antidote to insomnia and restlessness. . . . Nicolai accomplishes what no other author would want to hear: these stories can put people to sleep. * Publishers Weekly *
This collection of very short stories is designed to help readers fall and stay asleep. The stories follow the seasons, starting with winter, and rely heavily on the senses; there are a lot of lovely smells, soft and comfy things, and delicious foods, all described in detail and often accompanied by illustrations in muted tones. Peppered throughout are recipes, meditations, and other relaxation techniques. . . . The stories do succeed in their goal of helping readers sleep better, and couldn't we all use more of that? * Booklist *

“Poor!”

I'm sorry but I found this book patronising. It starts by telling us what we already know. Bedtime routines, no screens etc. The stories were very simple, they didn't send me to sleep, just bored me... More
