What time did your children wake you up today - 6 in the morning?

Maybe 5:00?

How many times did you get up to them at night?

Lack of sleep is one of the most painful points in the lives of parents of young children.

It's abrasive, it's exhausting and most importantly - it does not end so quickly.



Even when they grow up a bit and learn to fall asleep alone, they still wake up at night for all sorts of reasons and most horribly - is their tendency to wake up at sunrise.

The first chirp of a bird outside the window and your child jumps out of bed and demands your attention and catering services.

What does he care that you're in zombie mode and managed to shut down only 4 hours of sleep a night, and they's not consecutive either.

Such a parent would be willing to give a lot for another hour of sleep at night. New research offers just that - the possibility of giving your children and yourself a better and longer sleep - with the addition of more than an hour to their night's sleep - and all this with the help of meditation and mindfulness practice (listening).



A study conducted at Stanford University School of Medicine in California found that children who practice meditation and mindfulness not only enjoy better mental resilience and high emotional stability, but also sleep better. Its findings were recently published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine.



For the benefit of the study, the researchers recruited low-income families to examine whether and how relaxation techniques could be used to help improve sleep quality.

The researchers noted that children in the study, who come from Latin families living in neighborhoods in San Francisco where crime rates are particularly high, were not "taught to sleep better," but were trained in mindfulness practice and relaxation techniques in their school.

The researchers examined how exercise affected children's brain activity during sleep.

Then, the researchers used a device that measures brain activity, to examine how exercise affected school children's sleep. The practice was for children twice a week for two years by yoga teachers and teacher educators.



Throughout this period, the sleep of children who were in Criticism (not practicing meditation and mindfulness) was shortened by an average of 63 minutes (i.e., they lost more than one hour of sleep a night), and the number of minutes they were in REM remained unchanged. "



In contrast, children who participated in mindfulness classes extended their night's sleep by 74 minutes and added another 24 minutes to their REM year." , Said Dr. Christina Chick, a postdoctoral fellow in psychiatry and who led this study.

"Older children tend to go to bed later. I read the results of our research as providing some protection for children. The curriculum taught them skills that protected them from the loss of sleep typical of their age," Dr. Chick added, noting that hormonal changes and development The brain contributes to changes in adolescent sleep patterns.Because



one of the indicators that showed improvement in study participants was the length of REM (rapid eye movement) year during which we dream and this is also the period of time our memories crystallize, researchers estimate that one of the benefits children gain from meditation practice is .



"The children in the study group earned more than a full hour of sleep each night and nearly half an hour of REM sleep," Dr. Ruth O'Hara said in response to the study's findings. "These are amazing findings.

"There is theoretical, as well as clinical evidence from studies in humans and animals that indicate that this is a critical sleep stage for brain development and the development of cognitive and emotional functions," she added.
