The U.S. Military's Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Program is a leading initiative that aims to holistically develop the soldier's well-being, encapsulated in five key areas.
The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple and easily implementable approach for holistically developing soldier well-being.
Hundreds of peer-reviewed studies and tens of millions of dollars in funding from the (US) National Institutes of Health reveal the technique's efficacy for improving the five areas described in the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Program. Findings include:
1. Physical health: Reducing stress and stress-related illness and improving overall health and longevity (see Cardiovascular Disease, Decreased Healthcare Utilization, Resistance to Stress, and Peak Performance)
2. Emotional health: Reducing anxiety and depression and increasing contentment, integrity, and ability to resist peer pressure (see Emotional Health and Spiritual Health)
3. Social and family health Increasing tolerance and improving personal and family relationships (see Social Health)
4. Spiritual: Increasing self-confidence, moral maturity, and self-actualization—allowing the soldier to deeply connect with his or her own internal compass as a guide throughout life (see Spiritual Health)
