Thankfully some of them resort to meditation to ease tension and to just breathe in and breathe out. Things can easily get out of hand, which is why checking in yourself from time to time is a healthy habit. If the A-listers can manage to squeeze in a few minutes to reflect, then there’s no reason we can’t, too, right? Here are some of the stars that will keep you motivated:
“Glee” alum Lea Michele started allotting just 10 minutes of her time at home to meditate without music. She shared that the quiet, downtime greatly helps her. Her choice of meditation app is aptly called Calm, which the “Scream Queens” actress said is a good reminder that you need your “me time” so that your body and mind can relax.
If you are still clueless on how to start with relaxation, take it from LeAnn Rimes and her husband Eddie Cibrian who are both fond of meditation apps. The “How Do I Live” singer was so into it while her hubby was initially not interested.
However, she finally got into him and one day he just asked for it, she narrated. Basically, they are proof that this can be a fun activity not just for you, but for you and your partner as well. On which programs they love, the 36-year-old suggests their favorites: 10% Happier and Insight Timer.
