Transcendental Meditation is a form of meditation that focuses on a silent mantra you continue to repeat in your head for a set period of time blocking out other thoughts. It usually is around 20 minutes long and practiced twice a day.
Oprah Winfrey told Dr. Oz in an interview that she paid the course fee for her employees to learn TM with her and she has no regrets.
“9:00 in the morning, and 4:30 in the afternoon no matter what is going on, we stop and we meditate. And you can’t imagine what has happened in the company, people who used to have migraines, don’t. People are sleeping better, they are having better relationships and they are interacting with other people better. It’s been fantastic.”
Funny guy Jerry Seinfeldswears by it as well! He refers to TM as the superpower he didn’t know he had.
“I’m 63. I love having too much work, too many kids, too much social stuff my wife wants to do. New Yorkers don’t have that. Self-abuse is what they have. Socialize to death. Run to every opening of every stupid gallery.”
He went on to say TM was “like NFL guys with oxygen on.” Plus, Hugh Jackman swears by it too.
“My wife and I have been meditating for 25 years. We’re happier, healthier, we look better. I was 5-foot-4 before I meditated.”
“I start the day with Transcendental Meditation. It puts me in the best mood. I wake up and just prop myself up in bed for 20 minutes. It’s the only time my mind gets absolute rest. It’s changed my life, it’s changed how I think about things. I meditate before I write a song, before I perform. I feel my brain open up and I feel my most sharp.”
Even Clint Eastwood is drinking the kool-aid! He turns to TM to help him overcome stress.
“I am a great supporter of Transcendental Meditation. I have been using it for almost 40 years. I think that it is a great tool for anyone to utilize as tool for stress. Stress of course comes along with every business, but especially considering the stress that our men and women of our armed forces go through—the anxieties of going to or coming from combat, and the stress syndromes of various types—I think that it [TM] is a great tool. There are enough studies out there that show that Transcendental Meditation, or TM as we all call it, is something that can benefit everybody…. I think that it is a great system to use in life in general—otherwise why would I have been doing it all these years.”
Eva Mendes can’t even describe her love for Transcendental Meditation.
“It’s almost like Transcendental Meditation helps creatively on a level that I can’t describe. I can give you a list of things I think, but it’s tapping into something so deep that when I reap the rewards, I don’t even know I’m reaping them… It’s a more overall kinda thing.”
