Practice transcendental meditation for 20 minutes, twice a day, to help you lose weight, thrive at work, and eliminate heart disease.
The Transcendental Meditation technique is a very simple mental technique, and when practiced regularly, it is associated with a decrease in blood pressure and improved neuro-physiological integration and endocrine integration; therefore, it is a process in which you can decrease high blood pressure, decrease atherosclerosis, and at the same time become more awake, alert, bright and happy.
TM is a meditation technique for avoiding distracting thoughts and promoting a state of relaxed awareness in the individual. The late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi derived TM from the ancient Vedic tradition of India. He brought the technique to the U.S. in the 1960s. It allows you to live in the moment, and as a result function more efficiently.
By decreasing your stress levels, you won’t be as tempted to reach out for the usual suspects and stress eat—and your body won’t produce as much cortisol, which is the nasty culprit that makes it tougher to shed those stubborn kilos. Transcendental Meditation also helps keep your food cravings at bay, through its ability to balance both your mental and physical state. In simple terms, you will be more in sync with what your body needs, rather than what you assume it needs. And best of all, you’ll be able to clearly distinct when you’re hungry versus just thirsty.
A recent study found that TM training helped employees concentrate better, remember more of their work details, and stay energized and experience less negative moods.
Eliminate heart disease
And to top it all off, there have been studies showing that Transcendental Meditation increases longevity and decreases cardiovascular death, as compared to control groups that did nothing, received regular medical care and practiced other relaxation techniques. Also, the TM technique does reduce the risk factors for heart disease and stroke.
Overall, during the practice, your brain functions with significantly greater coherence and your body gains deep rest. What isn't there to like about TM?
