Researcher Resume 

Q: I get really stressed by things that don’t bother other people, like talking in front of a group or having to meet a deadline. Can TM help? 

Q: Is there any research to show these effects? 

Q: I can’t concentrate on anything for more than a few seconds. I’m afraid I’ll never be able to meditate properly. 

Q: What about stress due to sleep deprivation? I almost never get a good night’s sleep. Does the Transcendental Meditation technique help with that? 

Q: Isn’t some stress a good thing? Doesn’t it give us the edge to do things we might not get done otherwise, like meeting deadlines? 

Q: I take a vacation at least once a year. The stress goes away for a little while, but once I’m back at work, I start to feel pressure building up.
