Chill Out Like Heather Graham

Relax Already: Chill Out Like Heather Graham

Feeling stressed and frazzled can take a toll on your happiness and overall well-being. Heather Graham makes time in her busy schedule to reconnect with her center every day through transcendental meditation. Director David Lynch turned her on to the technique, which involves repeating a mantra to quiet the mind.

The Hangover star practices this type of meditation because, "It balances you out – it makes you feel a lot less stressed." She complements her daily meditative sessions with yoga, and says that she's "really obsessed" with it for its ability to affect the mental and physical.

Although meditation is a one-woman activity, it can be difficult to get started. If you need a little help getting into the art of quieting your mind, check out my tips on where to begin. Do you meditate?

she might be stupid, but at least she eats. i as at the London premier of hangover and she ate 1,25 risotto :D but the conversation was like from some teenage movie "Uh-uh, no way... he didn't say that. UH-UH!" kind of stuff. So I wouldn't listen to any advice she has to offer.

I used to last year. I feel like my life is so hectic right now that I neglect/don't have time for meditation-but that's exactly what I need to make time for! It really makes you feel at peace.

I agree with tlsgirl, I do not have the patience and find it incredibly boring. My mind just startsthinking about all the things I could be doing instead that are more productive and/or enjoyable. In place of meditation for me is doing yard work and gardening. Being outside in nature and not having any electronic distractions is very calming to me, plus I am also being productive at the same time.

I tried meditation once...I had a CD of someone talking really calmly and I think you were supposed to sort of visualize what she was saying. I felt really silly the entire time and I ended up just laughing by the end. It probably wasn't the way it was supposed to work!

I don't know if it's relaxation or meditation, but between yoga and reiki being able to clear my mind feels very nice. :)

I pray. It sure IS hard to concentrate sometimes though!

i'm a total believer of meditation and mind power - but it's really tough, not only to quiet your mind but to find time. as much of a dingbat as she seems to be, i can't believe she is capable of this... then again... that mind of hers can't be too cluttered with the BS "average" women deal with, so maybe this DOES work... for people like her.

Nope. I've never been able to do it, and I get bored, and then I start to feel silly...
