The December issue of Flying Start parenting magazine features the story of a mother who found something that dramatically helped her cope with stress, and be a better parent, too.
Helle Pettersen, nurse and mother of three-and-a-half year old daughter Josephine, was a 'doing machine'. It was when Josephine observed: 'Mum, you're not happy' that Helle realised something was going wrong.
Despite visiting new places every weekend as a family, and keeping very fit, life was just too stressful. . . . Helle found the emotional stress was more than she could take. 'I felt so weak,' she recalls.
Then, one day, she heard people talking on a television programme about the benefits of Transcendental Meditation, and certain things struck a chord instantly: the ability to make decisions more easily, improved focus, and above all, peace of mind. She wasted no time in taking a course with her nearest teacher of Transcendental Meditation.
'Through Transcendental Meditation I got myself together,' Helle states. 'I am a more whole person. I feel healed from all the emotional stress. All the stress does not get to me. I just feel more content and complete as a parent. I feel much more able to set boundaries and to give direction and structure.'
Flying Start magazine also features a short article about Maharishi School in Lancashire, England; and an advertisment for the benefits Transcendental Meditation for both parents and children, in which a mother describes its effects for her family.
