We Put 5 Sleepy Teas To The Test – Huffington Post UK

Personally I’m a fan of rooibos tea at bedtime, but there are a lot of sleepy teas out there to help restless sleepers get a good night. The linked article tries out several. Even if the specific ones mentioned are not available, it may inspire you to explore the options available to you. And of course, once you’ve settled down with a nice herbal tea, put Sleepy Time Tales on in your ears. 🙂

” Getting enough sleep can be tricky. Shelves of gadgets and gizmos promise to deliver the holy eight hours, but herbal tea is one of the original sleep aides. With calming ingredients such as camomile, lemon and lavender, these brews promise to leave you relaxed and ready for lights out. A simple cure to your bedtime woes or too good to be true? “

Honestly I’ve never really been a fan of chamomile and other traditional sleepy teas. But one thing us insomniacs understand is that not everything works for everyone.

Biting off more than I can chew

I managed for a couple of weeks to do two episodes a week. A ‘couple’ in the strictest sense of the term, I managed 2 weeks. 🙂 Turns out that recording and editing two episodes a week of a sleep aid podcast wasn’t good for my sleep. So now I’m tapering off a bit.

The more free-form improvised episodes I’ve been releasing are more achievable though. If I was going for more formal written episodes like my first two, even weekly releases would probably be beyond me. Full time work at my day job as well as family life means finding the balance.

I also really need a proper mic. My headset works okay, but I need to edit out a lot of disturbing lip-smacking noises that would not help people to sleep. And that takes up most of my time in the edit.

*** Don’t forget to take a look at my latest episode or the archives for a night’s sleep.

To the Stars

A beautiful field of stars and clouds
Journey to the depths of space

It was the year 2360 when the human race left for the stars for the first time. A fleet of constant acceleration ships, built out of asteroids heading towards Proxima Centauri.

This is the story of the beginning of that journey.

One of the more recent story series that is in a similar vein to this story and the basic concept is The Expanse. As series of books and a TV show that are both well worth your time. Check them out from the links below.
