I started The Warm Milk Journal back in 2010 on a free WordPress platform as a way to reach out to other people that may be suffering from insomnia and anxiety. 

At the time, I was a school teacher, mom, and just plain worn out. I knew I was not the only one feeling stress from daily life and losing precious sleep at night. 

What started out as a blog about insomnia became much more - I realized that getting a good night sleep was more than just how comfortable our bedrooms were or not drinking caffeine too late in the day, etc. The more research I did, the more feedback I got from our readers, and the things I did in my own daily life revealed that how we spend our days greatly affects the quality of sleep we have at night. 

Our diets, our spiritual lives, our attitudes, how much exercise we get, and so much more play a role at bedtime. 

What can you expect to find at The Warm Milk Journal?

  • Tips for insomnia

  • Inspirational essays about living the life of our dreams

  • Journal writing prompts and ideas on how best to use journaling to get yourself centered

  • The Mew Way: humorous articles on life lessons I’ve learned from my cat Mew.

  • Meditation and breathing exercises

  • Quotes, prayers, and poetry that promote a peaceful and loving state.

  • Encouragement, support, and love. You are not alone!

  • A community of fellow anxiety and insomnia sufferers

  • Most of my posts are original ideas and writings from me, Debra. I sometimes do get inspired by other authors, writings, etc. When that is the case, I will do my best to cite any sources I use.

Our Vision
