Meditation, mindfulness and sleep are three key ingredients when it comes to mental health and wellbeing. In recent times, they've become buzz words, with thousands of books, apps, videos and programs covering it all. Like everything in this book, I want to make things easy, so I'll provide real stories, information and simple tools to put in place without overwhelming you.

I'm going to explore a range of real-life examples of mindfulness and meditation, dive into some short stories and look at different techniques of mindfulness practice. I'll also discuss sleep: why it's so important and how you can create better sleep patterns. Finally, I'll cover why this is a global issue and ways for you to incorporate meditation and mindfulness into your daily life.
