Cognitive learning expert Sarina Grosswald, Ed.D.,* answers a commonly asked question about effects of the Transcendental Meditation technique in promoting relief from stress.
Q: I take a vacation at least once a year. The stress goes away for a little while, but once I'm back at work, I start to feel pressure building up.
Dr. Grosswald: The vacation helps make stress go away for a short period of time, but it really doesn't get rid of the accumulated stress; it's just a temporary fix.
What we need is something that allows us to be less susceptible to stress on a daily basis, so that stress doesn't interfere with enjoyment of life.
Research shows that the Transcendental Meditation program not only allows the mind and body to release accumulated stress, but over time it helps one to become more resistant to stress.
