Wow, it’s November already and Thanksgiving (US) and the Christmas Holidays aren’t too far away. It’s hard to believe that we are already thinking about the topic for our 2020 Holiday Season Meditation!
We’ve been busy getting the house ready for the cold winter ahead and we’ve finally got most of the leaves picked up around the yard. Now if we can just get the snowblower started!
We thought it would be fun this month to put up a poll on Patreon that everyone can participate in. We’ll post it soon so you can have a say in what meditations get created in December. You can only vote once, so be sure to vote for the session you want the most
Here’s some stuff that’s coming soon:
Alice in Wonderland Chapter 5 - Alice continues to change sizes and look for ways to get into that beautiful garden! (Silver/Gold Patrons)
Inner Peace - Discover the inner peace within you as you relax completely and drift off into a deep restful sleep. (Bronze, Silver/Gold Patrons)
The Zen Zone - Get in the Zen Zone! Focus on your goals as well as things you want to achieve! Whether you want to get focused or stay focused, this afternoon meditation will help you see, hear and feel what it’s like at a point in the future when you’ve achieved your goal so you can get/stay motivated to make it happen! All with the sounds of zen music and nature. (Gold Patrons)

Atlantic Challenge 2020
Natasha Lambert is a disabled sailer and adventurer who is a true inspiration! On November 22nd 2020 Natasha will depart from the Canary Islands to sail across the Atlantic Ocean to the Island of St. Lucia. This would be a challenging journey for anyone, but it’s especially challenging for Natasha as she was born with quadriplegic cerebral palsy.
Natasha’s Nautitech Open 46 Catamaran has been modified by Natasha’s father Gary Lambert to allow Natasha to control the boat using a sip and puff system. Simply by sipping or puffing on a series of “straws” Natasha can control many of the boats primary controls, including the sails, autopilot and more.
Natasha, is undertaking this challenge to raise much needed funds for 3 charities; the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, RNLI and the MissIsle School of Sip Puff Sailing. The aim is to raise £30,000 to share equally between the 3 charities.
To learn more about Natasha’s upcoming adventure please visit http://www.missisle.com/2018-and-beyond/

Peace and love,
Alan & Nikki
Wow it's almost fall already and there's not end in sight to this Covid-19 Pandemic. It's no wonder people are stressed out and need help falling asleep. The moment people close their eyes their mind probably starts racing and gets filled with all the worries and anxiety that this situation has brought into our lives.
We've had a lot of positive feedback from listeners who say that our Guided Sleep Meditations help them forget about all this for awhile so they can get the sleep they need. That's one of the reasons we create our meditations, to make people's lives a little bit easier, no matter the circumstances and help them reduce stress and stay rested.

Recently we've travelled from Ontario to Edmonton, Alberta and are working from Alberta for a month. Our daughter is expecting our second Grandchild, so we had to figure out a way to travel across the country while maintaining isolation. This includes not using public restrooms, using masks in any public place and seriously maintaining social distancing.
We didn't want to fly because we would have to isolate again for two weeks after arriving and we didn't want to take the risk of doing that. The solution was to purchase a 5th wheel trailer and a truck for our trip.
We took 4.5 days to make the drive. Towing a 12,000LB of trailer certainly makes the drive more challenging than just driving the family car as uneven roads and steep hills directly affect speed and handling of the vehicle and trailer. The roads through Winnipeg on the Trans Canada Highway were the worst roads we encountered, absolutely horrible!
This is our first time RVing and it's exciting to have the comforts of home when we stop for the evening. Being able to use our own bathroom along the way has been pretty convenient as well.
We are now parked in a RV park in Edmonton and are enjoying visiting with our 1st grandchild, our daughter and her husband. In a few days our second daughter will be joining us in Edmonton after travelling (isolated) from Vancouver Island.
The day before we left, our laptop crashed during an update and we've had to find a place in Edmonton to get it repaired, we'll be back to editing and creating new meditations today with a bit of luck! We're currently editing our sleep story edition of Chapter 1 of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and hope to release it in the next day or two, so if you're not a yet a Patron, head over to patreon and sign up :) With a Silver or Gold membership you'll get access to over 100 sleep meditations and our sleep stories as well. Visit www.Patreon.com/trackstorelax for details.
Our daughter is due to have the baby on July 6th, so we are excited to see if he appears on time or comes a bit early. We're excited to meet our new grandson! Stay tuned for updates!
Sleep is a corner stone of good health!
The better you sleep the better you feel. The better you feel the more energy you have to achieve your goals, no matter how big or small they are. If you're not getting the quality sleep you deserve, then you owe it to yourself to give Tracks To Relax a try.
You can start listening for free HERE and if you like what you're hearing then we hope you'll join our online family by becoming a Patron and getting access to many more sleep meditation sessions.
To say we are in challenging times in an understatement. So many of us are stuck inside, watching the news way to much and wondering just how bad things will get. This of course increases our level of stress and worry which in turn causes our adrenal glands to produce adrenalin. When we stay stressed for a long period of time, our adrenal glands can become depleted and this then makes us feel even more worn out, tired and less resourceful.
In order to avoid this state of adrenal trickle (where you adrenal glands are constantly active) you need to take regular breaks from stress. One of the best ways to do this is to listen to a Tracks To Relax Nap or Bedtime meditation. These meditations can distract your mind and relax you deeply so you can enter into a parasympathetic state. This is the state of rest and repair where your body can replenish it's resources instead of depleting them.
Luckily as human beings we have imaginations and that allow us to pretend that we are somewhere else, doing something fun or relaxing. We can imagine a future when this event is a thing of the past and life gets back to "Normal". We can imagine ourselves having a massage at the beach, or walking along the Ocean shore collecting shells or doing just about anything else that's relaxing.
With a soothing voice and wonderful meditation experiences, we can help you relax deeply. Whether you join our online family by becoming a patron on Patreon, or just listen to our free podcast, our meditations can help you take that break you need. It's like a hug for your mind in a challenging time.
Join our online family at by becoming a patron HERE.

Nikki and I are so glad you found our Tracks To Relax Sleep Meditation Blog! We're working hard to bring you new guided sleep meditations each and every month through either Patreon and Podbean!
