Sleep is essential for our overall health and well-being, yet many of us struggle to get a good night's rest. Poor sleep can lead to a host of health problems, including fatigue, anxiety, depression, and even chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease. That's why it's important to find ways to improve the quality of our sleep.

One way to improve sleep is through the practice of yoga and meditation. Yoga and meditation have been shown to have numerous benefits for sleep, including reducing stress, calming the mind and body, and promoting relaxation. By incorporating yoga and meditation into your daily routine, you can improve the quality and quantity of your sleep, and wake up feeling refreshed and energized.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient practice that originated in India and has become increasingly popular worldwide. It involves a combination of physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation exercises.

The practice of yoga has been shown to reduce stress, improve flexibility and strength, and promote overall physical and mental well-being. Additionally, yoga has been found to be particularly effective in promoting better sleep, as certain poses and breathing techniques can help calm the mind and body, and alleviate stress and tension.

What is Meditation?

Meditation is a technique for calming the mind and body through focused attention or mindfulness. It involves paying attention to your breath, body, and thoughts in a non-judgmental way, and can help reduce stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions. Meditation has been found to be particularly effective in promoting better sleep, as it can help quiet the mind and body and promote relaxation.

There are many different types of meditation, including mindfulness meditation, body scan meditation, and loving-kindness meditation.

The Science behind Yoga and Meditation for Sleep

There is a growing body of scientific research that supports the use of yoga and meditation for improving sleep. For example:

  • A 2014 study published in the journal Sleep Medicine Reviews found that practicing yoga can improve sleep quality and duration, reduce the time it takes to fall asleep, and decrease the use of sleep medication.
  • Another study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine found that mindfulness meditation can improve sleep quality in older adults with moderate sleep disturbances.
  • In addition, a meta-analysis of 18 studies published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found that practicing yoga or meditation can improve sleep efficiency, increase total sleep time, and reduce the symptoms of insomnia

Overall, the scientific evidence suggests that practicing yoga and meditation can be an effective way to improve sleep quality, reduce sleep disturbances, and promote relaxation. Find out more from our Wellness Hub articles here

The trio of rollers look, feel, and SMELL beautiful! My favourite is ‘Sleep’ so far, but all three oils feel really light on the skin and the customized bamboo packaging looks really cute on my bedside table :) I use my Sleep roller every night.



“HELP” I’m addicted to sleep tea. Going through a season in my life that was unexpected so my sleep pattern was lite. I how have a cup most nights and I know the difference, it helps with such a deep sleep when the alarm wakes me, I know my body and mind have had that time to just switch off.Good stuff. Addicted
