With the fast pace of life and nonstop stimulation from the Internet, social media, and texting, the young adult years are more challenging than ever. Teens and 20-somethings need a way to calm their mind and deal with stress, and many are taking up the TM technique for just that reason.
American singer/songwriter, model, and actress Sky Ferreira shared her TM story in a personal essay written for Marie Claire: “I may be a musician, but I actually have severe stage fright. And I have to go through a whole process before I perform. When I started writing music and singing, I never thought about the fact that eventually I’d have to get up on stage to do it. I mean, in school, I was the person who would cry if she had to give a speech in front of the class!”
