Mindfulness and Sleep

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]

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
