With an estimated 60 million Americans suffering from insomnia, sleep is something many of us are lacking.

In this video, Sonima’s founder, Sonia Jones, sits with Deepak Chopra, M.D., the renowned meditation guru and alternative medicine advocate, to discuss why sleep is so important and how mindfulness and meditation practices can contribute to overall improved sleeping habits.
