About the Book

From the popular author of How to Be Happy (or at Least Less Sad)—an insightful, supportive and creative journal for anyone who can’t turn off their restless minds when the lights go out

An engaging and emotionally aware resource for night owls, insomniacs, and anyone else who finds themselves awake at all hours, The Nocturnal Journal helps readers explore what keeps them up at night, and why. Prompts and illustrations tease out the pressing thoughts, deep questions, everyday anxieties, and half-formed creative ideas that need unpacking and exploring, bringing more peace of mind and a richer understanding of ourselves.


Hands up, if like me, you experience trouble sleeping?  Let’s face it, the vast majority of us are not able to get enough sleep when the night comes.  And if we are able to fall asleep, we tend to have trouble remaining asleep.  I know I’ve tried a lot of different things over the years to combat my sleeping issues, but I’ve never tried to find out just what it is that is keeping me awake.  That’s where The Nocturnal Journal by Lee Crutchley comes in.

The Nocturnal Journal is a great tool that I’ve been using for the past month to help me narrow down some of the reasons why I’m not able to fall asleep or stay asleep.  It’s filled with a lot of humorous exercises that help tire out my brain in the evening.  I find that when I pick up The Nocturnal Journal and do one of the exercises, my brain has less trouble ‘switching’ off than I normally do.  For me, this leads to a much better nights rest.

The exercises are fun and creative.  Plus, doing them in a book instead of a computer, prevents the stimulation you get from a lighted screen.  The act of journaling with the help of The Nocturnal Journal has allowed me to work through some pretty stressful situations this summer, and quiet my mind.  Since mid-July, I’ve gone from 2 hours of sleep per night to 5 hours.  While that may not seem like a lot to some, it has been absolutely vital to my health and well-being.  Take a look at a few of sample pages below and make sure you pick up your copy today.
