South Africa: How TM is helping Hannah Robertson, age 14, train for the 2020 Olympics
13 February 2019 - Young champion swimmer Hannah Robertson, in Johannesburg, says Transcendental Meditation 'helps a lot with stress and helps you stay focused and concentrated' for races and her training - and also in school: 'My grades have gone up.' Her coach, Dean Price, High Performance Manager of Swimming South Africa (the country's aquatics governing body), also values the technique. 'The biggest thing in coaching is to be level-headed and clear-thinking, so you make informed decisions and are not clouded by emotions. I think TM puts you in such a positive framework, so you naturally are seeing [athletes'] positive qualities and reminding them of that. . . . You can't believe how powerful TM is in transforming people. . . . It puts you in that space where you can do these incredible performances.' (more)

The power of gratitude: A new habit for the New Year
1 February 2019 - Positive thoughts and feelings, including appreciation and gratitude, have a 'nourishing, supportive effect on our minds and bodies' according to research, says health writer Linda Egenes. She goes on to say, 'When we practise Transcendental Meditation, we enjoy a silent inner oasis of peace. . . . Research has shown that during TM the body settles to a state of deep rest, with brain activity becoming more orderly and coherent - a state of ''restful alertness''. The direct result of a serene, stress-free mind as experienced in TM is to experience more appreciation, more gratitude, more joy while going about daily activities,' with higher levels of well-being and life satisfaction. In this way TM practice spontaneously helps cultivate a natural state of gratitude. (more)
