Any podcast recommendations for falling asleep? I know it sounds weird but I’ve been falling asleep easier listening to someone else (headspace app primarily) than to quiet or music because I can focus on something other than my thoughts! Mind racing so much before bed lately.— Claire Petrie, PHR, SHRM-CP (@_strclaire) September 24, 2020
The other night I just could not fall asleep. Recruiting work has been busy, coaching clients have picked up in the evening (which is amazing – so grateful!) and my husband and I were getting ready to put our house on the market this weekend! My mind was racing and I knew the Twitter community would come to my rescue. It was 11:34 PM and I asked my network, “Any podcast recommendations for falling asleep?”
Check out the thread, there were so many good suggestions. I have used Headspace meditation and sleep sounds in the past, but I think my brain has gotten used to them and still overrides it, so now I needed some new ideas!
Some honorable mentions I’ll be checking out:
Women’s Meditation Network with Katie Krimitsos
Nothing Much Happens – Bedtime Stories for Grownups
I hope these help you too! Leave a comment if you found this helpful or have other resources to add.

I can usually fall asleep pretty quickly listening to Bill Gates’ TED talks and interviews. He is normally quite calm and his voice tends to be very even.
I am trying out your rec for Nothing Much Happens tonight though.
Thanks for sharing!
