Meditation for sleep
Meditation has been shown to help people stress less, focus more and, you guessed it, sleep better. Headspace is meditation made simple. We'll teach you the life-changing skills of meditation and mindfulness in just a few minutes a day. Our meditations for sleep can help create the conditions you need for a truly restful night.
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.
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.
