ARP 255 Sleep Resources and Six Years Running

This is the sixth year of the podcast. Nothing like I envisioned it would be. The podcast was inspired by a lot of things.

Many years ago, I went searching for a podcast to help me understand what was going on. I found one but the gentleman was ending the show because the anxiety of creating and producing was too much for him.

I found others that were created by doctors using medical language I didn’t understand. 

Or ones selling books, cassettes for treatment. Or really pushing medication as the only option.

It took a long time, but I finally got what I needed; a therapist who supported my desire for a more expansive view of treatment. That is the episode with other stuff thrown in as well.

Join Scooter at the Sleep with Me podcast; you get at least an hour of a voice that might send you into the dreamscape.

For original storytelling there is Boarders of Sleep.

And if you are musically inclined there is the Deep Energy Podcast where you can get a taste of ambient and new age type music inducing slumber.

For those that want to experience something different, there is Moving Poems, a visual approach to poetry for those that are starved for poetry, don't have the time to pick up a book and need that balm of literacy. No, it isn't anxiety related but sometimes you have to jump off the grid.

From Harvard, an old school page on how to Assets Your Sleep Needs.
