Summary: get the rest you need, when you need it

  • Do you find your sleep pattern disrupted by shift work?

  • Vedic meditation helps restore balance and enables us to get deep, nourishing rest.

The problem: shift work is exhausting

Shift work – and particularly night shifts – wreaks absolute havoc on our body’s natural circadian rhythms and put a significant stress-load on the systems of the body.

No matter how many total hours of sleep you may be getting, if this sleep takes place very late at night or even during the day, then it is going against your biological nature, and your body will never truly be able to adjust.

Quality is even more important than quantity when it comes to sleeping, and under these circumstances, there is always a compromised sleep quality.

As a result, the stress response will always be over-activated, and you will be setting yourself up for an increased likelihood of a number of physiological and psychological problems including cardiovascular, digestive, immunosuppressive and fertility issues.

How can Vedic meditation help?

Vedic meditation offers an effective way to help restore balance and harmony to an otherwise disturbed circadian rhythm.

It allows us to gain the deep rest your body needs and craves (up to five times deeper than the deepest point in sleep) and ensures we get plenty of slow wave cycle rest so that we can more easily lead a balanced and happy life.

If you are no longer working in shifts but still suffer from its effects, we would suggest you still consider learning this practice of meditation to help restore balance.
