The Benefits of a Guided Sleep Meditation
As with any other type of meditation, you will notice your overall health improve. Meditation can greatly improve your physical and mental health, release stress by lowering the production of adrenaline, nor-adrenaline and especially the dangerous hormone cortisol, which are the hormones your body releases when you have long term stress. These hormones are great for an instant reaction whenever you are in actual danger or need to act quickly. But a constant release of these hormones damage your body greatly, causing serious health issues.
Stress is the cause of so many illnesses both physical and mental, and stress is able to greatly weaken our body and mind, giving disease a great advantage, making it easier for it to invade our body. But not only is our body getting weaker and unable to defend itself against outside attacks, but it also causes illness all on its own, creating complications inside our body and system. Stress can cause different types of cardiovascular diseases, as it tears on the body, heart and vessels. It can cause depression and mental imbalance. It can cause unhealthy weight gain or weight loss. And the list goes on and on. If you are already suffering from an illness, then stress can greatly worsen your condition, making recovery even harder.
But alternative natural stress revealing solutions such as daily meditation can improve your overall health and strengthen your body and mind. You will notice how you feel more in control of your own life, and you begin to feel much calmer on a regular basis. Your health and happiness improves and you feel much more balanced and centered.

The great thing about meditation is that it is completely natural, and is sometimes more effective than medication, especially for things like sleep. A sleeping pill can help you fall asleep tonight, but what about tomorrow? Meditation can help you get a healthy sleep cycle, allowing you to fall sleep naturally every night.
Sleeping pills can also be quite addictive, making it very difficult to get back into a natural sleep rhythm once you first start taking sleep medication. Sure a sleeping pill can be helpful once in a while, but it is only a temporary solution, and if you have a difficult time sleeping every single night, then pills may not be the best solution. Things like meditation can help you recreate a healthy sleep cycle. You will actually be able to relax in the evening, and fall asleep naturally.
