On 18 December 2008 The Daily Iowan reported: A recent study by Dr Fred Travis, a professor at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA shows the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Technique for university students. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of education.

Three-hundred students at American University in Washington DC, USA learned Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme, the article stated, and according to Dr Travis the meditating students reported a much more productive, less stressful learning experience than the control group.

Stress is prevalent among college students, the article reported. According to Dr Travis, the article stated, the stress of college may actually be harmful to students. One effect of stress, the article explained, is that it causes the prefrontal cortex of the brain to shut down. The prefrontal cortex is like the 'CEO' and is 'necessary to compile and interpret information', the article stated.

The article reported that Dr Travis and the other researchers of the American University study, said that 'incorporating the practice of Transcendental Meditation into a normal college routine can help reduce stress and improve academic performance'.

One student in the study appreciated Transcendental Meditation so much that after graduation she decided to enroll at Maharishi University of Management where all students practise the technique as part of the university's curriculum.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based-Total Knowledge based-programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
