meditation-image-63A study conducted at American University in Washington, D.C. found that practicing transcendental meditation (TM) can lower anxiety levels in college students. Students who participated in a TM program lasting three months demonstrated overall improvement in their mental health, with a particular improvement in rates of depression and anxiety. Learning to meditate had additional benefits for students diagnosed with hypertension who were also able to lower their blood pressure through the meditation program. Researchers note the importance of maintaining mental health among the young adult population, which faces intense social pressures during this transitional period in their lives, including stressors related to academics, finances, and their future.
