In a widely read post earlier this month, Business Insider reported on the “6 Daily Habits of the World’s Most Successful CEOs." In addition to waking up early, exercising regularly and cutting back on meetings, the word is out - they meditate!
HABIT #3: THEY MEDITATE EVERY DAY. Meditation is a wildly popular strategy for clearing the mind and focusing. Oprah Winfrey is so devoted to a form of mindfulness meditation called Transcendental Meditation (TM) that she has TM teachers instruct everyone in her company who wants to learn the art of meditation.
In an article on her website, Winfrey cites many benefits from the practice, saying that ‘the results have been awesome. Better sleep. Improved relationships with spouses, children, coworkers. Some people who once suffered migraines don’t anymore. Greater productivity and creativity all around.’
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi who developed TM once said, 'Meditation opens the awareness to the infinite reservoir of energy, creativity, and intelligence that lies deep within everyone.'
