5 Ways Meditation Heals Your Nervous System

As we navigate through the demands of daily life, our nervous system often bears the brunt of this relentless pressure. However,students meditate amidst the chaos, there exists a serene path to healing – Transcendental Meditation (TM). This ancient practice has been scientifically proven to offer profound benefits, particularly in restoring and revitalizing the nervous system.

What is Transcendental Meditation?

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, yet powerful technique that involves silently repeating a mantra, a specific sound or word, to achieve a state of restful alertness. Originating from ancient Vedic traditions, TM has garnered widespread attention in recent years for its transformative effects on stress reduction and overall well-being.

Healing Your Nervous System Through Transcendental Meditation

  1. Stress Reduction and Cortisol Levels: Transcendental Meditation has been linked to a significant reduction in stress and anxiety. As stress levels decrease, the production of cortisol, the stress hormone, also decreases. This reduction is pivotal in preventing chronic stress-related damage to the nervous system.
  2. Enhanced Brain Functionality: Scientific studies using neuroimaging techniques have shown that regular practice of TM results in increased coherence and integration of brain functioning. This enhanced connectivity positively impacts the regulation of emotions and stress responses, promoting overall nervous system health.
  3. Restorative Sleep: The practice of Transcendental Meditation has been associated with improved sleep quality. Restful sleep is crucial for the nervous system’s recovery and repair processes, allowing the body and mind to rejuvenate and prepare for the challenges of the day.
  4. Balancing the Autonomic Nervous System: TM has been shown to balance the autonomic nervous system, which comprises the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest and digest) branches. This balance is essential for maintaining homeostasis and ensuring the body’s ability to adapt to stressors.
  5. Reduction in Inflammatory Markers: Chronic stress can lead to inflammation, which is linked to various nervous system disorders. Studies have demonstrated that regular meditation, including Transcendental Meditation, can reduce inflammatory markers, contributing to a healthier nervous system.

At Maharishi School our students practice Transcendental Meditation twice daily as part of their school routine. This is how we help our students with stress management by addressing the root causes of stress and promoting profound physiological changes. Through our students regular practice of Transcendental Meditation they are able to rejuvenate their nervous system and have a more resilient, calm, and balanced life.
