Transcendental Meditation for women: TM relieves anxiety

The Transcendental Meditation technique significantly reduces anxiety by calming the nervous system and providing the experience of profound inner peace.

Experts say that both physically and emotionally, women are more vulnerable to stress and recover more slowly—and are twice as likely to suffer from anxiety. Whether caring for the concerns of family or pursuing a career, many women have a tendency to become overwhelmed by pressure and worries, leading to chronic anxiety.

Women may also blame their modern lifestyle: multitasking, caffeine, traffic, cell phones, television, computers, staying up late—all of which can over-stimulate the nervous system and keep one on edge.

Research: TM most effective at reducing anxiety
The Transcendental Meditation technique allows the mind to effortlessly settle inward, beyond worries and agitation. The body gains a deep state of relaxation and the mind becomes more serene. The whole physiology spontaneously shifts into a more balanced, harmonious style of functioning that is the extreme opposite of the stress response. Biochemicals in the bloodstream associated with tension and anxiety—such as cortisol and plasma lactate—are significantly reduced, and the brain functions with greater coherence.

Yet the TM technique gives one much more than relaxation. Transcendental Meditation allows the mind to transcend—to experience increasingly quieter, more settled states of awareness until the mind goes beyond thought and arrives at its deepest, most peaceful state: pure consciousness, the source of thought, one's inmost Self.

During this state of restful alertness, anxiety is transcended as the mind accesses inner reserves of energy, creativity and intelligence. One comes out of meditation feeling refreshed, rejuvenated. Worries are less. Mind and emotions are more clear and at ease. Life itself is more fulfilling.

Over time, TM practice stimulates rapid personal growth, allowing women to overcome anxiety and gaining strength and resilience from within.

''The Transcendental Meditation technique helps promote mental and emotional well-being. It has especially helped my patients with depression, anxiety, and insomnia.'' —Veronica Butler, M.D., author of A Woman's Best Medicine
