If You’re One Of The People Who Thinks Meditation Isn’t for You, Watch This And Think Again

Many people think meditation means having to control your mind in some way. But what if you’re not good at that? No problem. Unlike other forms of meditation, this practice involves no concentration, no contemplation, no monitoring of thoughts…no control or manipulation of any kind. Anyone can do it!

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 380 published research studies have found that the TM technique markedly reduces stress, anxiety, and fatigue, and promotes balanced functioning of mind and body.
