  1. yeah, ok next article next people will be believing all thgey have to do is inhale/exhale and they will have a new perspective on life

  2. This is all nice an everything. But let me get some advice from the Joe everyday man or Keke everyday woman. The ones that work 2-3 jobs and come home to a dirty house. The ones with the neighbor trying to steal your lawnmower. The neighborhood where some punk teenagers are trying to steal your car or break into your house, while you are working those 2-3 jobs.Or when you are driving to work, your car breaks down and your boss is stressing that you aren’t at work and this is your last warning. Let me get their advice on dealing with stress. Not some wealthy person’s advice. True they have their own stressors, whatever those things are. But their stress is not has heavy as the mom who is trying to make sure her ex isn’t trying to take the kids, rob her blind, or mess up her credit rating.

    • Automatically, with the practice of Transcendental Meditation, which is scientifically proven to develop the personality by removing surface problems, the deeper values of life naturally, without effort, come up for each person in his own terms as a result of surface stress becoming a little less. The practice is a sort of tapering experience, becoming finer and finer thoughts, to the finest thought, the state of least excitation of consciousness is transcendented.
