Meditation: Seinfeld Uses Stress Relief Practice Twice Daily
Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself.

Even while filming a commercial, meditation is job one for Jerry Seinfeld
Nothing gets between Jerry Seinfeld and his mantra. A spy on the set of a recent shoot for a car commercial was surprised when Seinfeld took a break from filming to practice Transcendental Meditation. We’re told the comedian ducked out midway through the afternoon session for about a half hour to do his chanting ritual.
It seems Seinfeld, who’s been a devotee of the TM movement for decades, is so committed to his twice-daily meditation that he has it built into his shooting schedules. Seinfeld, who has a hit web series, “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” recently said the practice got him through the nine seasons of his smash ’90s sitcom.
“(‘Seinfeld’) was a lot of pressure, and I loved every second of it, but it was a lot of pressure and a lot of work and it was all great, but I never could have accomplished it without TM,” he said at a David Lynch Foundation gala last year. A rep for Seinfeld declined to comment.
The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices (much like the term sports) that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. A particularly ambitious form of meditation aims at effortlessly sustained single-pointed concentration meant to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity.
The word meditation carries different meanings in different contexts. Meditation has been practiced since antiquity as a component of numerous religious traditions and beliefs. Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind in some way. Meditation is often used to clear the mind and ease many health issues, such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. It may be done sitting, or in an active way—for instance, Buddhist monks involve awareness in their day-to-day activities as a form of mind-training. Prayer beads or other ritual objects are commonly used during meditation in order to keep track of or remind the practitioner about some aspect of the training.
Meditation may involve generating an emotional state for the purpose of analyzing that state—such as anger, hatred, etc.—or cultivating a particular mental response to various phenomena, such as compassion. The term “meditation” can refer to the state itself, as well as to practices or techniques employed to cultivate the state. Meditation may also involve repeating a mantra and closing the eyes. The mantra is chosen based on its suitability to the individual meditator. Meditation has a calming effect and directs awareness inward until pure awareness is achieved, described as “being awake inside without being aware of anything except awareness itself.” In brief, there are dozens of specific styles of meditation practice, and many different types of activity commonly referred to as meditative practices.
