great for busy brains

I've been listening every night for the last 2+ years and recommend to everyone, especially those with ADHD and/or anxiety. It helps me keep my mind from wandering without having to focus on a plot or storyline. Easily the most soothing voice of allll the sleep stories!!

Perfection

I absolutely love these sleep stories and although it says it’s for adults they put my kids (6&8) to sleep in minutes!

Life-changing

I’m a relatively new listener & was a skeptic. I heard about sleep stories in passing and decided to look it up one night, I browsed a few and stumbled onto Nothing Much Happens, I was drawn in by the graphics & was sold when I heard Kathryn’s voice.

I have suffered from insomnia my entire life. I have tried everything - a laundry list of medications, mindfulness exercises, counting sheep, meditation, any and everything over the years. I found out about 5 years ago I have exceptionally good hearing (I can hear in the negative decibels) and had form fitted sleeper earplugs made to wear each night. It helped some, but I could still hear certain noises and it never calmed my mind.

In the time I’ve been listening to this podcast I’ve been able to sleep earplug free, comfortably for the first time in so long! I drift easily, peacefully, completely. And I sleep through noise that would have prevented me from ever drifting off before ! This podcast has changed my life for the better ! Thank you so much ! I cannot recommend it enough 🖤
