Experimental: Mind-Body Bridging Program
The Mind-Body Bridging Program (MBBP) is an awareness training program (ATP)to help individuals improve their health condition and attain a state of well-being. Bridging is the primary technique that facilitates the healing process, by bringing one back to the present moment to experience thoughts, emotions and physical sensations. Bridging aims to reduce the impact of negative thought patterns that contribute to stress in the body.

Experimental: Mindfulness Meditation Program
Mindfulness Meditation Program (MMP) is based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), which teaches participants mindfulness skills such as meditation and yoga. Mindfulness may be defined as paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally. The goal of MBSR is to provide participants with experiential tools and mindfulness practices to assist them to become more mindful of themselves, others and their external environment. The techniques are easy to learn and teach individuals to be aware of the present moment, with an open mind in which they can perceive their thoughts, physical sensations, and emotions nonjudgmentally.
Behavioral: Mindfulness Meditation Program
Mindfulness Meditation Program is based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, which teaches participants awareness and mindfulness skills using techniques that include a basic meditation practice and yoga.
Other Name: MMP
Active Comparator: Sleep Education Program
The Sleep Education Program (SEP) will serve as the control intervention in which participants will receive classes informing them how to change their habits to improve their sleep, and what to do if they have concerns about their sleep quality.
Behavioral: Sleep Education Program
