Professional Life

“TM brings balance into my busy schedule. I wanted a technique that would ensure health, fitness and mental well-being. With TM I have the energy and vitality to work very long hours, exercise regularly, and still function well as a mother. Right from day I saw the improvements in my life – less stress and greater happiness. And from then it just got better.”


A cornerstone of success

Ascending the corporate ladder, building your own business or performing at peak level in sport, requires stability, adaptability, mental clarity, along with physical and emotional stamina.

Research shows that Transcendental Meditation develops these qualities, and helps us to cope with the added pressure of simultaneously taking care of family. The key is not to manage stress but to eliminate it while increasing energy, focus and comprehension – all on a daily basis. These benefits can begin immediately after TM instruction and continue to grow overtime.

TM and your Career

Women who can think clearly, remain focused under pressure, and perform efficiently at work have an edge over people who cannot. Both personal experience and worldwide published research conducted in business and industry show that the Transcendental Meditation technique gives us broader comprehension along with the ability to focus sharply.

“I very soon found that instead of having less time in which to get everything done, I had more, in spite of taking 40 minutes out of my day. I was able to do everything with less effort, and much less fuss. I had more energy, more time, and much more enjoyment of what I was doing.”


TM and Business

Many companies around the world are turning to Transcendental Meditation to improve the caliber of executives and staff. Employees who are more creative, more intelligent, healthier and more energetic contribute more to a company, so that productivity increases, absenteeism decreases and teamwork improves.

Improved Job Performance

Studies have shown that TM is more than twice as effective at reducing stress than any other form of relaxation. TM has become a vital part of stress-management programmes for hundreds of companies throughout the world. Research carried out in a chemical factory in Detroit, USA, showed remarkable results over a three year period. As TM was introduced to more and more employees, absenteeism dropped by 82% and profits rose by over 500%.

Increased Satisfaction with Professional and Personal Life

A study of executives and workers in the automotive industry found that after three months of regular practice of the TM program, employees showed increased professional and personal satisfaction, in comparison to controls from the same work sites.
