As an actress and a mother, I was concerned to get quality sleep when I was working late night hours at the theatre, followed by early mornings when I must look after my toddler. Since taking AWAKE and ASLEEP, I have felt very energized throughout the day, especially leading up to performance time. They have ensured that even though my hours of rest are cut down, I get quality sleep!
These products are an excellent way to make the most out of your job while not compromising your health. It is so comforting to know these are not on medications with dangerous side effects. I would highly recommend AWAKE and ASLEEP to anyone who works hours outside of a 9-5 job.
Continuing as a competitive international ultramarathon runner in my 60s
I started running to mitigate the effects of shift work. It was the best way I could find to keep fit in a way that accommodated the shift working lifestyle.
I reached a level of fitness that enabled me to run the Canadian Marathon (3 hours 17 minutes) while doing shift work. Now a grandmother, I celebrated my 60th birthday by running 7 ultramarathons on 7 continents in 7 days!
25 years of shift work in Intensive Care at a children's hospital
As a nurse, I found that working 12-hour shifts was very detrimental to my health and my family life but, as a working mother, I felt I had little choice but to continue working until my children were older. It was not until 2005 that I was able to I leave nursing to pursue a new career as a Naturopathic Doctor.
Working as a nurse in an Intensive Care Unit, was both physically and emotionally demanding. No matter how much I slept, how well I ate or how much I exercised, I never felt refreshed—even after days off. I also noticed the negative effects of shift work on my co-workers. Their persistent, underlying tiredness led to poor lifestyle choices—take-outs, fast food, and drinking too much coffee and Coca-Cola in an effort to stay alert. I even remember co-workers getting in car accidents when driving home after a night shift.
Eventually, I listened to my body and began to understand the importance of the body’s internal clock—the circadian rhythm— that governs our sleep/wake cycle. It was telling me that I was going against the natural order and I was in danger of shortening my life.
I also could see, all around me, the effect of fatigue on patient, personal and public safety. The 12-14 hour shifts were fast-paced, high-stress and physically and mentally demanding. It was especially dangerous to be fatigued in this environment, where there was little room for error. I discovered that many studies show that fatigue-related error is the 3rd leading cause of patient death in hospitals.
I'm a grandmother with a passion for living well and a bit of an obsession with running. I hope you will join me on your journey to lifelong wellness and success. What ever your journey, you only have one body and, in my experience, if you look after that, the rest is just details.
Yours in good health,
Dr Pushpa Chandra
