The Transcendental Meditation technique relieves stress naturally

Everyone is aware of the negative effects of stress. It decreases performance, harms relationships, and creates physical wear and tear. In short, it curtails enjoyment of life. Furthermore, it tends to build up in the system over the course of a lifetime. Even a good night's sleep or an extended holiday does not enable us to recover fully. Nowadays, stress is a fact of life - but it need not be.

Creating a balanced outlook

There may or may not be things we can do to reorganize our lives externally in order to help to reduce stress. But whether or not this is an option, internally Transcendental Meditation practice actually eliminates the effects of stress, physiologically. This results, when practiced regularly, in a more balanced outlook, more energy and motivation, and a deeper appreciation of things.

Calmer response to stress

Because each individual is different, the balancing effects of Transcendental Meditation practice may bring different benefits for different people—for example, fewer headaches, improved sleep, increased energy or better relationships. However, one benefit that the majority of people share is that they can generally handle stressful situations better after learning the Transcendental Meditation technique.
