Many individuals have taken to yoga and mindfulness meditation to explore their benefits when it comes to improving sleep, according to Z Living.

Research shows that nearly 80 million Americans are sleep deprived and along with sleep disorders, they may also be diabetic, obese and depressed. Some studies show that close to 30 percent of adults in the U.S. suffer from short-term sleep troubles while about 10 percent have chronic insomnia.

The statistics also show that short sleep duration is a major problem among adults. Nearly 37 percent of 20-39-year olds and 40 percent of 40-59-year-olds have this issue while 35.3 percent of adults get only less than seven hours of sleep in a day, every day.
