The Importance of Rest Periods 休息的重要

Now, even management understand the importance and benefits of rest two times a day during working hours.

Studies found that there is no better rest than Transcendental Meditation (TM).

上圖顯示:現在連管理層也了解到在一天內,工作時間內休息两次是重要性和有好處。科學研究顯示,沒有比超覺靜坐提供更佳的休息方法。為甚麼呢?

This graph shows the average results in effect size of no less than 30 studies, performed around the world over 15 years. It shows that during TM practice respiratory rate, a measure of relaxation, goes down far more than during eyes closed rest. Other measures of relaxation, like basal skin conductance and the stress hormone plasma lactate, show similar decreases that indicate a far deeper rest than ordinary relaxation.
