This Clever Mind Trick Calms You Down Instantly

If spending some quiet time every day could bring you better health, better concentration and increased performance in every area of your life, wouldn’t you want to try it?

 

Developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, transcendental meditation is a way to become better in tune with your body, mind, and thoughts.

The TM movement gained a lot of attention years ago as celebrities began using it. The Beatles, Oprah, Ellen and the like are all devotees. Businesses jumped on the bandwagon too when they learned the benefits for their employees.

How Transcendental meditation Can Help

Transcendental meditation is ideally 20 minutes twice a day. TM Home outlines the benefits above.

Another TM trick is to pick a made up word with no meaning to you. As your mind can not associate an image with the word, you will notice a clearing of thoughts.

Your mind then goes into a sleep mode like your computer. This is a great technique for falling asleep too.

You could also choose your own mantra, something that inspires you but doesn’t make you feel anxious. You can try the suggestions above from Holistic Mind Body Soul too. Transcendental meditation can help you lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, and blood pressure.

You can also improve work efficiency, academic performance, mental health and emotional well being. It is also effective in fighting addictions like smoking and drugs.

How To Do Transcendental Meditation

This quick visual guide from Business Insider shows how simple it is to dedicate some time to transcendental meditation every day.

Sit down somewhere you’ll be comfortable – they recommend a cozy chair, but a soft pillow, chair on the deck or a mountain’s peak work just as well!

Now you’ll begin with a few seconds of total quiet, then slowly ease your brain into repeating the mantra you were given.

You’ll then repeat the mantra in your head. It should be at your own individual pace, no set rhythm.

Don’t focus on your breathing, as you do in most meditations. Focus only on your mantra.

Now keep on repeating the mantra at your own pace, but let other thoughts or visualizations seep in as well.

At this point, some people begin to experience a moment of “transcendence”, meaning a feeling of total peace and relaxation. Don’t worry if you don’t feel it right away, it may take practice.

Meditate in your most restful state for 20 minutes. Before you open your eyes again, take a few minutes to “wake up”, not repeating your mantra or focusing on anything in particular.

Ideally, practice this meditation two times per day.

Although TM teachers recommend practicing the method twice per day, many people have also found it to be effective in just one session per day. Do what you can, and try to build on that.

Some of the known benefits of Transcendental Meditation that are widely reported include:

  • Reduced anger and anxiety
  • Better stress management responses
  • Easier recovery from addictions
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Greater effectivity
  • A more balanced mind and better-balanced emotions
  • Better performance in academics and business
  • Better self-actualization

Meditation Blog compiled this excellent list of all of the benefits that TM can bring. It is probably the most comprehensive list out there, with nearly every benefit having been proven through regular, everyday people.
