Mindfulness & Sleep by Anna Black

How to improve your sleep quality through practicing mindfulness

About the Book
Do you have trouble sleeping? Do you worry about the fact that you are awake when you want to be asleep, and how tired you will feel during the day? You are not alone. One in three of us experiences problems sleeping - often triggered by stress, illness, and getting older.

Practicing mindfulness meditation regularly can help change our relationship to sleep. As well as helping to reduce our overall stress, we learn to become less reactive and more accepting of being awake, which in turn reduces our anxiety around not sleeping. This may mean we drift off to sleep, but even if we are still awake, the mind is quieter. Whether awake or asleep, the mind and body are resting and overall we feel as if we are sleeping better.

In Mindfulness and Sleep, Anna Black introduces mindfulness and explains how it can help change your relationship to sleep as well as reduce stress. There are 25 practices and activities that introduce mindfulness and how to practice. These include meditations for night-and daytime, as well as everyday activities that shine a light on our habitual patterns and behaviours and help create better habits to support the body's self-regulating sleep system. There is also a sleep diary, which allows you to make notes about what you discover when you pay attention to what helps and hinders you in sleeping.

On the Back of the Book
If you're having trouble sleeping, mindfulness can help.

When you bring mindfulness into your life, you can change your relationship with sleep. Not only has mindfulness been shown to reduce stress, a typical cause of insomnia, but it also helps to develop an attitude to acceptance - meaning that if we cannot sleep, we are less likely to experience anxiety about it, and we can simply rest.

  • Learn how your body uses sleep to function at its best, and which activities can help or hinder it.
  • Discover what mindfulness is and how it works
  • Try over 25 practices and activities to introduce mindfulness to daily life as well as sleepless nights
  • Create a sleep diary to shine a light on your routines and behaviours that may be preventing you from sleeping.
