Lullabies of an Insomniac

I have been having so much trouble falling asleep lately, the only benefit being pretty Instagram pictures of the sunrise.  I have been sick for the past few days and I know that I need sleep but I just haven't been tired.  I have amazing friends who have been volunteering to get me whatever I need... too bad you can't buy sleep at the store (without drugging yourself up the yin yang).

One thing that I have found that helps me fall asleep is listening to the radio.  I subscribe to a number of different podcasts that I listen to during workouts, while I'm cleaning my room, and now, while I'm trying to fall asleep. My favorite podcasts are both broadcast on/through National Public Radio.  "This American Life" is the one I have been listening to the longest.  The shows are always hilarious and educational. My parents used to play it on the weekends while all us kids ate breakfast or did chores.

The second podcast and the one I am going to share more in depth about is "All Songs Considered."  This radio program is all about music.  I have really started to enjoy it.  I listened to one of their shows this past week on globalFEST, an international music festival that took place in New York City in January.  The radio program played some beautiful live bits of the shows that took place, all of which were amazing.  NPR also has videos of the shows which I have been checking out for the past hour.  Here are my favorites and wish me luck NOT watching another sunrise!
