The Importance of Rest Periods 休息的重要

Jpe Rest period

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).


Here’s the reason why

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.
