On 26 March 2005 CBS News reported: When Stephanie Oakes, fitness editor for USA Weekend magazine, visited CBS's The Early Show, her focus was on giving viewers tips on how to relax. One suggestion was meditation. Oakes noted specifically that, 'Transcendental Meditation has been around for a long time, and has been studied by doctors, scientists and others for over 30 years.' It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

For the last week, The Early Show has been featuring life's 'Simple Pleasures'. The final show in the series was about relaxation techniques: unwinding with exercise, deep breathing, and meditation. Special guest Stephanie Oakes spent a good amount of time discussing the positive benefits of meditation in general, and explicitly citing the Transcendental Meditation Technique.

Oakes emphasized that studies at prestigious universities have shown that meditation can reduce stress and lower blood pressure.

'The National Institutes of Health found that 80 to 90 per cent of all illnesses are caused by stress, either directly or indirectly,' said Oakes. 'Clearly, something more than positive thinking, counseling, morale boosters or even traditional exercise is needed. Transcendental Meditation Technique was found to be more than twice as effective at reducing stress than any other form of relaxation.'

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
