Often someone who is suffering from stress, a mental or emotional disorder or have been newly diagnosed with a chronic physical condition like diabetes will find that sleep patterns are hugely impacted.

A research study conducted at the University of Calgary in Canada, found that a mindfulness based stress reduction course can have a significant impact on reducing sleep disturbance and improving sleep quality.

There was also a significant reduction in stress levels, mood disturbance and fatigue. [41]
