Psychiatrist Chris Clark, M.D.,* answers questions about the effects of the Transcendental Meditation technique in improving mental focus:
Q: Sometimes I feel so stressed about work and raising my family that I can't think straight, and I make decisions I later regret. How can adding one more thing to my day help me?
Dr. Clark: Adding the Transcendental Meditation technique to the day is adding more coherence, more centeredness, more creativity and resourcefulness. Regular practice of TM brings resolution of stress and fatigue in the physiology. According to research, practice of the TM technique leads to more efficiency at work. Many people who start practicing Transcendental Meditation find that raising their family is more fluid, and that this is the solution that they were searching for.
Q: I'm a little dreamy and impractical—my friends call me spacey. Won't practicing Transcendental Meditation just increase this tendency to daydream and not focus on things at hand?
Dr. Clark: No. Research shows that the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique enhances the ability to be both creative and focused.
Sometimes people have artistic, creative, broad vision, and those abilities may make them seem dreamy. Research shows that the Transcendental Meditation technique not only will enhance those creative abilities, but will also improve the focused, problem-solving aspects of the mind. The TM technique enlivens the whole brain, including the so-called executive centers of the brain, allowing one to become both more creative and practically productive.
