Why is Wall Street taking to the Transcendental Meditation technique like never before? The quick answer, according to a recent report in Yahoo Finance News is: Less stress, more success.
An article by Nicole Goodkind at The Daily Ticker explores the increasing pressures on stockbrokers and bankers, and the growing concern over the epidemic of stress-related problems on Wall Street.
She includes a video interview (shown below) with Bob Roth, Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, who adds the success side of the formula. He reports that Wall Streeters are able to ''think more clearly, make better decisions, plan better and solve more problems.''
''Stress is a huge problem—one of the top HR companies in the UK has called workplace stress the black plague of the 21st century,'' says Roth. ''It costs American business over $300 billion a year and there was a recent study that came out saying 83% of American workers feel high levels of stress on the job . . . . Who wants to live the rest of their life on Xanax or Prozac?''
''Wall Streeters are evidence-based people,'' Roth continues, ''and are surprisingly open to new off-the-beaten-trail ideas. With the use of Transcendental Meditation, evidence shows that [bankers] think more clearly, that they make better decisions, plan better and solve more problems—and if you do that the chances of making money are far greater . . . you have a leg up and a competitive edge.''
