The Transcendental Meditation technique creates a state of restful alertness—deep rest for the body and full alertness for the mind. Restful alertness is different from ordinary sleep in that this state of deep rest is seen after a few minutes of Transcendental Meditation practice, and the mind is fully alert in comparison to the inertia of sleep.
This unique state of restful alertness releases stress and strain that the ordinary rest of sleep does not relieve, leading to many benefits for health and longevity across a wide spectrum of the systems of the body.
