In this video, join Sonima's founder, Sonia Jones, and Deepak Chopra, M.D., in learning about the way that meditation can positively affect sleep.

While brain activity appears to go down in meditation and sleep, it is actually quite active as the body and mind are repaired and restored during these unique states.
