The research indicates this form of meditation is a better bet for a good night’s sleep than the more conventional strategy of focusing on better sleep hygiene.

“According to our findings, mindfulness meditation appears to have a role in addressing the prevalent burden of sleep problems among older adults by remediating their moderate sleep disturbances and deficits in daytime functioning,” says lead researcher Dr David Black from the University of Southern California.

The study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine

In a related commentary, Dr Adam Spira from the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health says the results are “compelling”.
