Even though Vanessa feels fortunate to be able to do something she loves for a living, she also needs time to decompress. Meditation is one of her favorite ways to do that. During an interview with The New York Times, Vanessa said, “I usually meditate twice a day, Transcendental Meditation. For some reason, I always forget to meditate on Sunday, because it’s such a weird day, and I’ll remember at 5 and meditate for 20 minutes. And it’s great, because I’ll feel like I’m getting something done. Even though I am sitting on the couch.”

 

“I’m a new mother. My daughter—she’s such a gift—but there is sometimes a challenge concerning sleep! No matter how much support you have. But where am I going to get those six hours that I used to get? Where did it go?” “There’s been so many different ways TM has blessed me, but in this particular moment, as a new mother, I take 20 minutes. Not only do I find the deepest rest that I need, that my body is desperate for—but it feels like I’ve stolen two-plus hours, maybe three hours, from the clock.”

It’s not just diet and exercise that have been crucial when it comes to Lowe’s personal and professional success—the star says that adopting a daily transcendental meditation practice has been instrumental to his wel-lbeing. “It’s changed my life,” says Lowe, who meditates twice a day for 20 minutes, admitting that finding the right routine for him has taken him nearly three decades.
Lowe says that meditation has helped him approach his daily life with a clear head. When he’s confronted with a difficult situation, “I have this feeling of, ‘Oh, there was a time when this would have me feel angry, irritable, or tense, but today, I don’t care about that,'” Lowe says.
