In order to sleep properly we need to find peace in our lives.
We understand instinctively that if we are anxious, angry, stressed or emotional we have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep – and can even wake up too early in the morning.
Those who practice meditation know the benefits of calming the mind, being mindful of how we are reacting both inwardly and outwardly, and how a calm mind can elevate our lives in many ways.
Happiness has a strong connection to compassion – gentleness and kindness – and to calmness and emotional intelligence.
The good news is that happiness can be achieved through training your mind – using meditation, and also by compassionate actions.
If that sounds bizarre, then perhaps you would like to listen to Matthieu Ricard – reputably the happiest man in the world.
