What if I told you that sitting quietly for twenty minutes twice a day could change your life?
When Layla, one of my closest friends and a sister-by-choice, suggested I write a blog post about transcendental meditation (TM), I was immediately apprehensive. I’m a chronic stress junkie whose attention span is, more often than not, laughable; what pearls of wisdom could I possibly offer about sitting still and calming one’s mind? What’s a mantra, anyway?
And so I researched.
