For 20 min­utes a day ac­tress Nicole Kid­man prac­tises Tran­scen­den­tal Med­i­ta­tion to achieve equi­lib­rium. “I took it up in my early 20s and I learned the ben­e­fits,” says Kid­man. “I even use a med­i­ta­tion app on my phone.”

Tran­scen­den­tal Med­i­ta­tion helps you to reach a state of aware­ness beyond what you nor­mally ex­pe­ri­ence. “there’s no need to empty your mind,” says med­i­ta­tion ex­pert Ch­eryl Goodman. “Just close your eyes, sit com­fort­ably and re­peat a mantra in your head for 10 min­utes.”

In some ses­sions you may feel rest­less while oth­ers are calm­ing, but with reg­u­lar prac­tice you’ll be­gin to re­spond bet­ter to stress and gain more fo­cus, en­ergy and emo­tional re­silience.

To get started, visit a qual­i­fied teacher or try the 1 Gi­ant Mind app.

Try it if… You have a very busy, high-stress life­style.
