Reduced Insomnia

Feeling rested, clear and alert when you wake makes for a great start to the day.  The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults 18–64 years need 7–9 hours.

“When we’re tired, we don’t think as clearly, are more distractible, and take longer to complete our tasks. We also may stay up too late trying to finish off what didn’t get done during the day. This ends up creating a vicious cycle of fatigue, lack of rest, too much activity, and more fatigue. Taking the TM course is the number one recommendation I make to all my patients.

Nancy Lonsdorf M.D., graduate of Stanford University and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

Think About the Why?

Studies conducted in the last 10 years showed that fatigue is one of women’s top five health concerns – and that as many as 45% of women have fatigue resulting from stress.

As women, we juggle work commitments, career, childcare, groceries, household chores—the list can seem endless. Sometimes there is barely enough time to complete the list and no time for ourselves.  Over time our resources can become taxed and our nervous system starts to show the wear and tear. Sleep is often a casualty of this onslaught, and it is a vicious cycle once sleep becomes disturbed. Then it is important to stop, take stock and do something to address the backlog of fatigue and to restore quality sleep.

Why TM?

“The Transcendental Meditation technique provides a profound level of rest and over time it will assist you in “paying off” the “sleep debt,” leaving you feeling more clear and more energetic during the day.”

James Krag, M.D., Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, president of the Psychiatric Society of Virginia.

Benefits of TM include:

  • Deep rest (American Psychologist)
