11 February 2018 - 'Moms cannot afford to ignore their own needs while taking care of children, work and home.

She recommends something 'helpful to motherhood, child-rearing, patience, endurance, [and] stress reduction: Learn Transcendental Meditation.' Published scientific research has verified TM benefits that are 'strengthening for a parent, such as decreased anxiety, fatigue, depression, insomnia and hypertension along with increased stamina, resilience, and happiness.' From pregnancy through their children's teen years, when mothers 'add Transcendental Meditation to your family's routine, life will become easier, softer, more stable, and sweeter'. (more)

9 February 2018 - Scientific research in the 1970s found that the pattern of physiological changes during Transcendental Meditation was different from waking, dreaming, and sleep - indicating that Transcendental Consciousness, the state experienced during TM practice, is a major fourth state of consciousness. Of particular interest, writes Dr David Orme-Johnson, one of the researchers, was increased alpha1 EEG during TM, which indicates a mind-body state of restful alertness. Subsequent research found that the alpha1 frequency during TM is coherent between all brain areas, which is correlated with a vast array of brain diversity underlying thought, behaviour, and feelings - creativity, intelligence, moral reasoning, and lower anxiety.
