I have always had a problem sleeping. I have tried many types of sleeping pills and they never have really helped me at all, not even prescription ones. My husband always tell me that I should read a book or listen to music to help me fall asleep. I know meditation can help me as well but I have yet to really try it for myself. Meditation can help you relax your mind and focus on things that you need to work on. I am currently looking for some Meditation - Free MP3s that I can listen to at night on my iPhone.
The best place I have found yet is at http://www.ramatalks.com. Besides my sleeping meditation has been found useful for relaxation techniques that actually decrease your heart rate and stress which makes you much healthier. Meditation also can help you in your personal relationships and even your career. Being able to focus and streamline yourself is useful in almost any aspect of your life.
