How to do transcendental meditation?
Sitting in a comfortable position, close your eyes and silently – in your head – repeat a mantra or sound, such as “om”.
The mantra or sound is used to focus your attention. And this is to be repeated for up to 20 minutes.
This safe practice has been shown to reduce chronic pain, reduce anxiety, high blood pressure and cholesterol in various studies.
There are different types of meditations to choose from, and there’s apps available to help guide you.
