I have been practicing meditation for years. I notice some nights I could not fall asleep — thats when I decided to apply meditation to help me sleep quickly. It works. I then started to read different articles on the subject of meditation and sleep. The experts were saying that meditation is a viable way to help with some sleep difficulty.

I decided to start the website Meditate into sleep. To help those who may have some difficulty with sleep. And for those who have an interest in meditation. One could say I am a bit selfish because  I love meditation
Meditate into sleep website helps me to be occupied with what I love.

Learning to meditate is more than a trend - more and more studies prove the effectiveness of meditation in many mental and physical illnesses.

Meditation also improves wellbeing in healthy people.
Already 10 to 20 minutes daily are enough to make a positive change, your sense of wellbeing.
