The article explores the topic of sleep deprivation, which afflicts a large proportion of the population, from students cramming for exams to adults juggling the demands of work, home, and family. In turn, lack of sleep leads to mental and physical fatigue during the day, lack of ability to focus and decreased job efficiency, and increased stress.

The writer comments on a solution she found in college, the Transcendental Meditation Technique, which greatly reduced the stress that had interfered with her ability to sleep, and also increased her mental alertness.

Also featured are comments from psychologists and medical doctors on the unique state of 'restful alertness' produced in the mind and body during the practice of Transcendental Meditation, which extensive scientific research has shown to promote high levels of orderliness or coherence in brain functioning and many other beneficial physiological and psychological effects.

Health care professionals make clear that Transcendental Meditation is not a substitute for sleep. But the deep rest produced during the practice, they say, helps to counter the deep fatigue and other effects of sleep deprivation, while also reducing the stress and anxiety which can contribute to sleep deprivation in the first place.
