Games for sleep, relaxing and not very challenging

I am looking for games that are great to play before you go to sleep. Something that is very relaxing, not really challenging, and you don't have to think. Osmosis is good but it can get a little to challenging at times. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Kami is one I like to play before sleeping.
Blek is also a fave for unwinding.

Thanks. I just picked up Kami based on your recommendation. I like it but I think I need something a little less challenging. I have really bad insomnia. Has anyone ever fallen asleep while playing a game? Blek looks cool, I will put it on my wish list.
Watching Eli play Blek makes me sleepy. Eli, you may be the cure to my insomnia. Is this game going to be reviewed?

Thank you so much cloudpuff for your recommendations. Blek is freaking awesome! I have never seen anything like it in my life. Games like this are only possible on touchscreens. It's truly unique and completely relaxing. Any more suggestions are really appreciated.

What helps me is Fairway Solitaire, Disc Zoo, and Zen Bound (1 or 2). When I can't sleep or when I get up in the middle of the night, these seem to help. Good luck.

Glad you like blek. I also suffer from insomnia, it's awful, so you have my sympathy there.
I'll have a look through my device and history later today, I used to have a folder with games for relaxing I'll try remember what I had in it.

Zen Bound for sure. Those games were made for relaxing.

Disco Zoo also is an addiction for me lately. Addicting and not remotely challenging.

A friend once told me that she plays Coin Dozer to help her sleep.

I've just bought a game called kotaro, so far it's relaxing, it's a puzzle type but also peaceful, I'm only at the beginning though so can't say how difficult it gets but might be worth a shot.

Euphloria is pretty great
