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. 
The benefits of getting adequate unbroken sleep include:
- Increase tolerance and ability to cope with stress
- Decrease irritability and anger
- Clarity thoughts and judgements
- Improve memory
- Improve general health and wellbeing
- Increase energy levels
- Enhance mood
- Lower blood pressure
