Nerves of Steel has partnered with a variety of facilitators to help you relieve stress - Mentally

What are you currently doing to get rid of stress mentally? Have you ever considered meditation? We have partnered with the Director of the local Transcendental Meditation(tm) (TM) Center to offer you a mental technique to eliminate stress - every time you meditate. This technique is easy and effortless and has more scientific research than any other technique on the market. It does not keep you on the surface level of the mind but a dive to inner calm.

With TM, practiced twice a day every day, the brain chemistry improves and EEG monitoring shows a regular rise in brain coherence. In addition, TM helps improve sleep, because you are getting deeper rest than deep sleep. With improved rest from sleep, people tend to feel less impulsive and eat in a more balanced way and feel more settled with more inner balance and stability.
