Coach spoke to Niraj Shah, founder of Meditation: Unlocked, for more information on how meditation can help you get some valuable shuteye.
There have been a couple of studies in this area. One in particular from the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre looked at meditation and the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone.
What’s supposed to happen is when it gets darker our natural rhythms start producing this melatonin and it helps us to sleep. But in modern life we’re always on, using screens, working late, eating late – it messes with that melatonin production.
