Demands on nurses are more than physical and mental—nurses are often the emotional support for their patients. When nurses get burned out, compassion fatigue is a symptom. The TM technique reduces their stress and revives their compassion.
The Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique helped to reduce compassion fatigue and burnout in a group of 27 nurses. Nurses who regularly practice TM experience reduced anxiety and burnout, according to a study published in the Journal for Nurses in Professional Development, along with increased resilience and restored compassion satisfaction.
Nurses are the heart of the healthcare system so it is a joy to help sustain them:
“I view my practice as a much needed and beneficial form of self-care that then extends to better outcomes in both my personal and professional life. I have more creative energy than previously, more patience and more joy.” Amy Sannes RN BSN
“In a profession full of people used to giving and serving and taking care of others, we find many of us don’t have time or energy to take care of ourselves. I am grateful for the opportunity to do just that by embracing this course.” C.S. RN Cleveland Clinic
“Transcendental Meditation has allowed me to clear my mind before going to work so that I can give my patients the care that they need and deserve. Before I learned Transcendental Meditation I would go to work dreading my assignment and a sense of worry about whether or not I would have to be mandated to stay over my shift to fill staffing holes. After learning Transcendental Meditation I have been able to focus better on my patients and the tasks at hand. I feel that Transcendental Meditation gives me an energy boost to start my shift and allows me to start my shift with a positive mindset for myself, my patients, and my interactions with my fellow colleagues.” Tina B. BSN, RN, HTP
