In this video, join Sonima’s founder, Sonia Jones, and Deepak Chopra, M.D., in learning about the way that meditation can positively affect sleep. Insomnia, says Chopra, is a result of stress, and given the way meditation can work to soothe anxiety, meditation can also be seen as an antidote to sleep issues.

While brain activity appears to go down in meditation and sleep, it is actually quite active as the body and mind are repaired and restored during these unique states.
