Jerry Seinfeld, Transcendental Meditation & Nine Seasons of Seinfeld

On Tuesday, December 3rd, at the David Lynch Foundation's 5th annual Change Begins Within Gala at the Conrad Hotel in New York City, Jerry Seinfeld took the stage to open the event: "When I was doing the TV series in which I was the star of the show, the executive producer, the head writer, casting and editing, for 22 to 24 episodes on network television—not cable! Network! For 9 years. Okay? That's a lot of work. And I'm a regular guy, pretty much. You know, I'm not one of these crazy people that has endless, boundless energy. I'm just a normal guy, but that was not a normal situation to be in. So what I would do is everyday, when everybody would have lunch, I would do TM. Then I would eat while I was working because I had missed lunch. That is how I survived the nine years. It was that 20 minutes in the middle of the day saved me."
