Description: As part of a larger study of the effects of mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques on the health of women with breast cancer, this article looks in particular at the effectiveness of MBSR in stress related sleep complaints. Results showed that both women practicing MBSR and a Free Choice control group both showed significant improvement in a daily diary measure for sleep quality. Neither group showed improvement in sleep efficiency. The results suggest that MBSR shows promise for improving the quality of sleep for women with breast cancer who suffer from stress related sleeping problems. (Zach Rowinski 2005-03-04)
