How Long Do I Have to Do It?

As Essie proved, "you don't have be a yogi in the Himalayas meditating for 45-minute stretches to get results," Dr. Bauer says. It takes just 10 to 20 minutes to relax your muscles, become aware of your breathing, and reduce your heart rate.

Transcendental Meditation is a style of meditation that involves simply sitting quietly with your eyes closed for up to 20 minutes. While seated, meditators repeat a mantra to allow the mind and body to settle down and find deep rest. People who practiced Transcendental Meditation actually lived longer, according to a study in the American Journal of Cardiology.
