He practices transcendental meditation Added Eastwood: “I think that it is a great system to use in life in general — otherwise why would I have been doing it all these years? Almost half of my life.” Clint Eastwood also opened up about TM in an interview with GQ, revealing that he tries to meditate “twice a day.” While working on a movie, Eastwood admitted that he becomes downright “religious” about ensuring he works meditation into his schedule. “I believe in whatever self-help you can give yourself,” he explained. “So meditation with me was just a self-reliant thing.”
