Lena Dunham, star and super-power behind the HBO series Girls, shares how she came to learn Transcendental Meditation as a 9-year-old, and how it has helped her since then, both on and off the set. At 0:52 Lena talks about anxiety, at 2:34 it's ideas and her creative process, and at 10:25 she touches on the very real problem of stress and exhaustion in the workplace and her desire to bring the TM technique to her sets.

The Video: Interviewing Lena is Bob Roth, Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, a nonprofit that provides scholarships to teach the TM technique to at-risk populations. The interview takes place on Bob's SiriusXM radio show, Success Without Stress. Listen to the full interview (45 minutes) here.

The Technique: Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. It is easy to learn and enjoyable to practice, and is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over six million people have learned it—people of all ages, cultures, and religions—and over 350 published research studies have found that the TM technique markedly reduces stress, anxiety, and fatigue, and promotes balanced functioning of mind and body.
