This helps so much <3

I have trouble sleeping because I have really bad anxiety and panic attacks but this podcast clears my head and unscrambles it making me relaxed and ready to sleep (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤

Best fall asleep podcast!!!

I’ve been listening to this for a couple months and I think I’ve only heard the end of 2 stories. I love the strategy of reading the story twice. There is just something about being able to relax knowing if you miss something the first time, you can hear it the second time around, but not being able to stay awake that long. A mental trick for sure because it took 2 weeks to hear the end of the Crystal Princess story. Many times I turn it back on in the middle of the night - which is the hardest time for me to fall back asleep. This has been great. Thank you!!

Relaxing. It definitely helps me sleep sometimes it takes listening to story more than once. Thank you
