Stress levels among women have been rising steadily for the past five years, outpacing men's, says the American Psychological Association's 2010 survey. Fifty percent of the women surveyed say they lose sleep at night because of stress, and report that fatigue interferes with their willpower to exercise, choose better eating habits or make healthy lifestyle changes.
Other surveys have found that nearly twice as many women than men are affected by depression and anxiety. Women these days do not have to be convinced that they need more rest and rejuvenation. But many do need assurance that it's okay to take the time.
Effortless and easy meditation
During the Transcendental Meditation technique, the mind can easily transcend its busy, agitated state and experience inner silence; the body relaxes and deep-rooted stresses dissolve. This transcending process takes one's attention to the mind's deepest level, one's inner source of energy and intelligence.
Research in neuroscience has found that during TM practice, all the different parts of the brain begin to work together better as a whole. More efficient brain functioning naturally results in a healthier mind and body, better able to cope with and overcome stress.
