Transcendental Meditation 'helped me in every way - I mean, immeasurably': Hugh Jackman
30 July 2014 - In his recent interview on Bob Roth's SiriusXM radio show Success Without Stress, actor Hugh Jackman described how practising Transcendental Meditation has helped him greatly in overcoming the 'nerves' and fear that arise before performing. 'For me, the best way to handle that was meditation,' he says. 'So I meditated before I hosted the Oscars, I meditate before I go on stage, I meditate in the morning and lunchtime when I'm on a film set. And it's like it resets.' (more)

Success without stress
29 July 2014 - Although she didn't enter law school until her mid-forties, Robin Zabel completed her degree ahead of schedule, then creatively adapted her knowledge, skills, and professional responsibilities in the face of a changing job market. In a recent interview she attributes of all her success to her lifelong Transcendental Meditation practice. 'Transcendental Meditation gave me unexpected broad benefits, just by increasing my clarity and eliminating stress daily. It laid the foundation for the self-confidence, the ability to focus on my studies, the resilience I needed to achieve and persevere . . . , the creativity to invent myself again and again.' (more)

How Transcendental Meditation helped me through a traumatic experience
28 July 2014 - Last year Harper Spero, Managing Director at Agent of Change, had two MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) medical tests. The first was intensely stressful, physically and emotionally--she found the machine 'awkward and claustrophobic' and felt little comfort or support. As the date for the second MRI approached some months later, she felt rising anxiety, panic, and dread, she writes in a recent Huffington Post article. But unlike her first experience, the second turned out to be very smooth and 'seamless'. What was different? Ms Spero gives most of the credit to Transcendental Meditation, which she had learned in the interim, and practised while she was in the machine. 'I'm so grateful to have a tool like TM that not only helps with lowering my blood pressure and enables me to sleep better, but also to stay calm . . . in hectic situations.' (more)

Transcendental Meditation can help reduce sugar cravings
28 July 2014 - According to Pamela Peeke, M.D., a nutritionist, National Institutes of Health (US) researcher and best-selling author of The Hunger Fix and other books, the main way to fight food addiction and sugar cravings is to power up the pre-frontal cortex, the part of the brain that reins in addiction's three I's: impatience, irritability, and impulsivity. Health writer Linda Egenes discusses how Dr Peeke began practising Transcendental Meditation after she read the research presented in Dr Norman Rosenthal's book Transcendence, and then conducted her own research on food addiction and TM. 'In my study, the TM group found it much easier to say ''no'' when confronted with cues,' Dr Peeke said. 'Indeed, what they found was that the bliss, the calm, the peaceĀ became the reward. It became a healthy fix.' (more)
