Take a vacation twice per day …

As our lives get busier, a yearly vacation is not always sufficient to keep our balance. When we get “out of balance”, we get stressed, our health suffers, we don’t think as clearly, we don’t react to others as nicely and we make more mistakes, which then creates more stress, etc. This very quickly becomes a vicious cycle. To counter-balance the intense activity we deal with and become more stress-resistant, we need intense rest.

Transcendental Meditation is an easy, mental technique that provides exactly this: rest that is so deep and rejuvenating, that just 20 minutes twice per day can provide the balance we need to remain happy, healthy and clear-thinking, even in very stressful circumstances. It is like taking a mini-holiday twice a day.

“It calms me down, I have less headaches, and I sleep better.”
William Hague, Former British Foreign Secretary
“TM is the easiest thing I’ve ever done, not just the easiest meditation, but the easiest thing.”
Cameron Diaz

What does science say?

“No other ‘stress management technique’ has anywhere close to TM’s amount of hard data in support of its claims to reduce stress.”
Dr. Norman Rosenthal, Psychiatrist, U.S. National Institutes of Mental Health

There are 350 published scientific research studies about TM. Below is an example of one of these.
The technique very quickly creates deep rest, which helps the body to get back into a state of balance.

This graph from a Harvard Medical School research study shows this clearly: during TM the body almost immediately comes into a state of deep rest, while it takes many hours to reach the deepest rest during sleep (state of rest is measured by percentage reduction in oxygen consumption). Ref.Science 27 Vol. 167 no. 3926 pp. 1751-1754 1970 More than 30 studies around the world have by now confirmed the deep state of rest during TM practice.Ref.American Psychologist, 1987, 42: 879-881.
