My habits in general have changed as well, beginning with my diet. Soon after starting this twice-daily practice I gave up meat and dairy and in general began to take better physical care of myself. I also completely cut out alcohol and marijuana. I no longer have any urge for these substances which I consumed on a daily basis for nearly 20 years, and I now get the same or deeper relaxation and stress relief from TM. As a professional singer-songwriter and entrepreneur, I relied on these substances for creative inspiration.
Now I find myself not only able to get to this same creative place, but with a more present and clearer understanding of the process of reaching that place. Best of all, this inspiration no longer comes with the price of hangovers, lack of ambition, poor eating habits, and other deteriorative side effects. Instead, TM provides me with the energy to work on the ideas that come to me . . . diligently, honestly, and effectively.
