A proven natural insomnia remedy for older adults

A recent study set out to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness meditation as a way of improving sleep in older adults.

The research involved a small group of adults with an average age of 66 who had moderate sleep disturbances.

Half were taught mindfulness awareness practices and half were taught sleep hygiene techniques over the course of 6 weeks.

Those in the mindfulness meditation group saw significant improvements in their sleep quality, depression symptoms and levels of fatigue compared to those in the sleep hygiene group.

When looking at anxiety, stress and inflammation, there was no difference between groups.

Researchers therefore concluded that access to mindfulness awareness techniques may help improve sleep in older adults (at least over the short term) and alleviate symptoms of sleep deprivation such as daytime impairment.

If you want to give mindfulness meditation a try, UCLA offers a free 12 minute body scan for sleep (and other guided meditations).
