In Nothing Much Happens Kathryn Nicolai offers a healthy way to ease the mind before bed: through the timeless appeal of classic bedtime stories. These calming tales take place in and around a fictional city, each one revealing those small, sweet moments of joy that may be found in the commonplace. As the unnamed, gender-neutral narrators recount their days they evoke the distinct comforts offered by each of the four seasons and gently lull their reader towards sleep. From celebrating nature and revelling in the joy or being home alone to the pleasure of getting lost in the stacks of the library and picking out the best of the end-of-season tomatoes at the farmer's market, this treasury offers something for everyone.

Using her decades of experience as a meditation and yoga teacher, Kathryn Nicolai creates a world for you to slip into, one rich in sensory experience that quietly teaches mindfulness and self-compassion, soothes frayed nerves, and builds solid habits for nurturing sleep.

About the Author

Kathryn Nicolai, the Michigan-based writer and creator of the enormously successful podcast NOTHING MUCH HAPPENS, writes soothing, cosy stories that both ease the reader into peaceful sleep and teach the principles of mindfulness so that waking hours likewise become sweet and serene.

Industry Reviews
Nicolai has nearly two decades of experience as a yoga and meditation teacher. She also hosts the popular podcast, Nothing Much Happens, where she narrates soothing bedtime stories for adults that-combined with her calming tone and carefully interwoven mindfulness techniques-quickly lull listeners to sleep. Her first book features sixteen new stories never aired on the podcast, along with whimsical illustrations, easy-to-make recipes for healthy comfort food, crafting exercises and unique meditation guides. Basically, it's a calming tome to pick up before bed to ensure a restful night's sleep. * Pure Wow *
