Sleep better

Trouble sleeping?

Sleep problems are pretty common. Almost one in three people have difficulty falling and staying asleep1, while one in ten regularly experience insomnia2.

And a poor night’s sleep can affect more than what side of the bed you wake up on. Lack of sleep has been connected to an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and a higher incidence of depression. You really need those ZZZs.

Can meditation help?

Short answer—yes. Although Headspace wasn’t used in these particular studies, research shows that if you have trouble sleeping, meditation may help you fall asleep faster and have a more restful night’s sleep3. The Headspace Sleeping single and 30-day Sleep pack can help create the conditions you need for a truly restful night’s sleep.
