Jennifer Aniston has been practicing Transcendental Meditation to cope with split from Justin Theroux
Jennifer Aniston talks about Transcendental Meditation and its benefits. Could it be possible that it is helping her through her recent split?
Jennifer Aniston believes in taking good care of her health and knows full well that the phrase "health is wealth" stands true to its words. Days after the news about her split from Justin Theroux, who she dated for seven years and was married for two years, a video has been circulating online in which the Friends actress can be seen talking about Transcendental Meditation.
In a video interview with PopSugar, Jennifer can be seen confessing that every day in the morning she practices relaxation technique in order to stay calm, centered and grateful for everything she has in life. "It's a kick start for your day, it centers you, your stress levels are down and you find yourself interacting with the world much easier and better, in a calmer way," she says. "There's a peaceful way that comes over you."
Jennifer also accepted that she has been able to see the change in herself as well as her body by practicing meditation every day. "I don't know how or why there's no rhyme or reason. I just know if I go through a phase where I slip off and I'm not as religious with it, I feel the difference," she said. When told that meditation might not be seen as the perfect fit for many, Jennifer could not help but disagree with it.
"You can listen to beautiful music, find gratitude in what you do," she said. This is not the first time that the actress has spoken about the benefits of the practice. Prior to this, in an interview with Well+Good, Jennifer revealed that she wakes up every day at 4:30 am to practice it.
"Usually, 20 minutes, or 10 if I can’t get the full amount of time in. It’s a set [Transcendental Meditation mantra] that I do every time," she said. "I have a trainer, a wonderful woman who I do this spin-yoga class [with]. We spin for half an hour and then do yoga for 40 minutes. That’s pretty intense."
Last Thursday (February 15), Jennifer and Justin had come out with a joint statement in which the announced their separation. "This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship," the statement read.
