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.
“Wall Streeters are evidence-based people,” says Roth, “and are surprisingly open to new off-the-beaten-trail ideas. With the use of Transcendental Meditation, evidence shows that [bankers] think more clearly, that they make better decisions, plan better and solve more problems and if you do that the chances of making money are far greater… you have a leg up and a competitive edge.”
