Mindfulness and Sleep: How to Improve your Sleep Quality through Practising Mindfulness by Anna Black, with illustrations by Clare Nicholas and published by Cico Books, 2018.
Do you have trouble sleeping? Do you worry about the fact that you are awake when you want to be asleep, and how tired you will feel during the day? You are not alone. One in three of us experience sleep problems, often triggered by stress, illness and getting older. Practising mindfulness can help as we can learn to be less reactive and more accepting of being awake, which in turn reduces our anxiety around not sleeping.

In Mindfulness and Sleep Anna Black introduces mindfulness and explain how it can change our relationship to sleep as well as reduce stress.
There are over 25 practices and activities that introduce mindfulness and meditation so you can begin integrating it into your daily life (and night).
It includes a mixture of meditations for day- and night-time as well as everyday activities that shine a light on our habitual patterns of behaviour and help create better habits that will support the body's natural self-regulating sleep system.
