All the benefits mentioned below have been noticed by people practising TM (Transcendental Meditation) over the last 50 years. What is the difference? TM is easy & enjoyable to practice, because it involves no concentration & no emptying of the mind or getting rid of thoughts - a very important difference which is the reason why you find people still practicing it decades after originally learning.
Beautifully summed up in the following sentence from someone who learned TM last year :
"I really enjoyed the course, after years of struggling with thought control meditation techniques, TM feels like a breath of fresh air - it almost feels like cheating! I'm managing to practice twice a day and I'm getting a lot out of it already."
Zara ~ Leeds

"Absolutely I do still do TM- not as much as I'd like - we've had a really hectic few years. TM definitely helped but as I said I ought to do it more. There are times when I am so chuffed I have it as a skill - it works wonders in taking the edge off and more when you're knackered or stressed."

One of billionaire Ray Dalio's key success principles is having a "radical open-mindedness" to new ideas.
Dalio has meditated almost every day since 1969 and says it's had a tremendous impact on him. "It gives you an equanimity, a centeredness, a calmness — so that you can thoughtfully deal with things in a better way without being emotionally hijacked."
While there are tons of books on meditation, he recommends this recent one by psychiatrist Norman Rosenthal, which gives an overview of Transcendental Meditation and its many benefits.
Meditation is "very powerful," he says. "It gave me an equilibrium that really helped me."
