Meditation before bedtime can help men and women combat night sweats and hot flashes. A recent study conducted at University of Massachusetts Medical School found menopausal women who meditated as part of a stress reduction program experienced significant relief from hot flashes and night sweats. The study’s participants’ average age was 53.6 and they experienced an average of at least seven moderate to severe hot flashes each day.
The stress reduction program involved classes in body scan meditation, sitting meditation, and mindful stretching. The women also participated in guided meditation at home six days a week for 45 minutes. At the end of the study, the frequency of the women’s hot flashes decreased an average of 39% and the average severity of hot flashes dropped 40%. Additionally, most participants reported being better able to deal with their hot flashes.
With this study in mind, Cool-jams Wicking Sleepwear along with meditation master Sue Davey have developed a special meditation specifically for cooling the body. By using the cooling meditation before bedtime, many have found their night sweats to diminish considerably. To receive your own complimentary cooling meditation download, go to www.cool-jams.com
