We all lead busy, dynamic lives with more to do and seemingly less time to do it than ever. We are constantly switched 'on' - our daily life has been likened to what our ancestors may experience in year, in terms of visual and sensory stimulus. In a society that is continually stressed, our body cannot tell the difference between a valid threat to our survival and an email from the boss. We have begun to normalise operating in 'fight or flight' mode and our health, mental and emotional wellbeing, suffers. Many of us 'live with' or manage chronic levels of fatigue, low level anxiety and bouts of depression, or suffer from stress-related health conditions from digestive and reproductive issues, to auto immune diseases and even cancer. We find ourselves overreacting to situations or circumstances we know logically shouldn't affect us to that extent. At work we often lack access to what should be our innate creative potential and clarity of mind. We're stressed. We simply don't get enough rest to release the stress we are subject to on a daily basis, let alone the backlog of stress accumulated over a lifetime.
The good news is Vedic Meditation can reverse the effects of stress on the body, effortlessly releasing daily tension, stress and fatigue and, over time, chipping away at the entire backlog of your accumulated stress. The rest achieved with the practice of Vedic meditation is so deep that stress can be released at an accelerated rate, meaning each day you wake up with less stress than the day before.
The benefits to the life of a meditator are profound. All it takes is an easy 20 minutes with your eyes closed twice a day. Why wouldn't you?
