Y'all, my mind does not stop running. I wouldn't say I'm anxious, just highly analytical and driven to productivity. But a girl's gotta sleep sometime. (For the 18 m old will rise at dawn) I used to listen to a meditation to fall asleep, but that hasn't been working. Anyone have any ideas for me to try?

@katie I used to love the one narrated by Stephen Fry but I've listened to it so many times at this point. Someday I hope I can fit their subscription in my budget. 😊

@LiveYourValues they have stories read by Matthew McConaughey now!

@LiveYourValues get a 20oz Voss bottle, and make yourself an adult sized calm bottle. I have a coloring book by tattoo artists, coloring/art is known to calm the mind. Make sure your blue light filter is in your phone. A night time yoga practice. Need more?

@Randy omg I used to teach preschool and never thought of making a calm bottle for myself! 💜💜💜 And I have blue light filtering glasses. They make me look like a hipster. 🤓

@LiveYourValues Keep doing the things you already do, sometimes you just need to step it a up for a season. Also, if you want to step up your calm bottle game: make the mix thicker and add some fine glitter/dust. Don't make it too thick, cause it wont settle to the bottom. Good luck!

@LiveYourValues
Have you tried yoga before bed? It's the only way my mind stops. That and acupuncture but I'm not doing that on myself.

@Michellear I've only done yoga a few times, mainly via YouTube. Do you have any bedtime yoga recommendations?

@LiveYourValues I listen to gardening podcasts when I'm ready to sleep. I'm interested in the content but not too interested, and I mostly listen to shows from the UK with calm, cozy voices. When my mind is really running fast, a few drops of the Calm a Mama sleep drops helps me settle down too.
