Yahoo Finance: Managing Stress on Wall Street

by Bibi Tran on March 03, 2014

Stress costs the American workplace up to $300 billion annually, according to the World Health Organization. Stress is a leading cause of heart disease, depression, drug-dependency and has recently lead to multiple cases of suicide within the business community.

To help address the devastating impact of stress, many business leaders are turning to Transcendental Meditation, reports Yahoo Finance in a February 27, 2014 article. Author Nicole Goodkind writes, “The technique requires 20 minutes of silent meditation two times a day and is popular with folks like Bridgewater’s Ray Dalio (who offers TM to his 400 employees), Bill Gross, Dan Loeb, Nigol Koulajian (Quest Partners) and Kevin Kimberlin (Spencer Trask & Co).”

The David Lynch Foundation has begun offering the technique to business firms throughout Wall Street. Funds raised from these classes are helping to expand the Foundation’s programs to at-risk students, veterans, and victims of domestic violence throughout the Tristate Area.
