There will never be a better time to listen to these podcasts

When you find yourself stressed at the end of a long day or in the middle of a work week, I doubt you give yourself the time to savour the pause and ask yourself what you really need! In a world where the hustle culture is so strong, we really need a daily reminder that we need to slow down a little, catch a breath and unwind a little. 
 
If you’re someone who doesn’t know what helps you unwind, I’ve found it very helpful to make a list of things that help me relax. And it’s not necessary that the same thing will help on two different days, hence the list comes in handy. While painting in adult coloring books is something that works for a lot of people on a tiring day, I don’t know how useful it is when you’re anxious or stressed. 
 
I love how convenient and effective podcasts are on days I want to do nothing except lie down and listen to someone talk while sipping on some homemade iced coffee.

4. Sleep with Me 
My trust in Drew Ackerman comes from the fact that he suffered from insomnia, so he knows exactly what one needs to unwind before bed. He picks random stories in ‘Sleep with Me’ and adds a zillion other irrelevant details in it making it as mundane as possible. What really helps you sleep in this podcast? His soothing voice while he narrates the most random incidents that won’t hold your interest in the least.
