Adding the peaceful, rejuvenating rest of the  Transcendental Meditation technique to one's daily routine dissolves stress, reduces wear and tear on the body and refreshes the mind. Over 600 scientific research studies have verified the health benefits of TM practice—with the US National Institutes of Health giving $26 million in research grants to scientists over the past 20 years to further study the technique's health effects. 

''If TM were a new drug, conveying this many benefits, it would be the biggest, multi-billion-dollar blockbuster drug on the market.'' —Norman Rosenthal, 20-year senior NIH researcher and professor of psychiatry, Georgetown University Medical School

Women comprise more than half of America's workforce, and many are also the main caregivers for the family. Coming home at the end of a workday and attending to children and household chores can be overwhelming—and accumulating stress takes its toll on mental and physical health. Taking time to nourish oneself, with twice daily TM practice, is often the best way to nourish the family—and to be most efficient in one's own responsibilities.

The opposite of stress
The physiological response during TM has been found to be the extreme opposite of the body's stress response. As the mind experiences quieter, subtler levels of the thinking process and then transcends thought altogether, the body gains a state of profound rest, much deeper than ordinary relaxation. This deep, healing rest allows for accumulated knots of emotional and physical stress to be released—studies show that the body naturally restores balance where needed.

Research has found that TM practice has a truly holistic affect on health, with normalization of hormone levels, blood pressure and measurable improvements in diabetes, cholesterol, cardiovascular health, and brain functioning. The body starts to maintain a more rested, calm and energetic style of functioning even outside of meditation, making one more resilient to stress.

Younger biological age
Stress is a major factor in how we age—even in how we look. Research has shown that people practicing TM have a much younger biological age than their chronological age: long-term TM meditators are an average of 12 years younger than their non-meditating counterparts. Daily TM practice allows a woman to stay balanced and connected to her inner vibrancy. Meditating women so often radiate a meditative glow of natural, inner and outer beauty.
