In an interview for InStyle magazine, actress Nicole Kidman talks about her favourite method of chilling out – doing Transcendental Meditation. Moreover, Kidman admits to blending the wisdom of the ages with the most cutting-edge technology!
“I like to meditate, Transcendental Meditation usually,” Kidman says. “I took it up in my early 20s and I learned the benefits.”
“I try to do it every day. A typical session is 20 to 30 minutes.
I even use a meditation app on my phone that has a timer and also shows you on a map all the people that have logged in that are meditating at that very moment.”
Successful, and compassionate
During her successful career in Hollywood, Nicole Kidman has won several awards – including an Academy Award for Best Actress – and topped the list of the highest-paid actresses in the movie industry.
Yet Kidman herself sees this as an obligation and a duty, more than anything:
“I find trying to solve problems and save lives is far more important than my film career,” she says.
“I’ve been put in a position where I’ve been given a lot. I think it’s my duty to give something back.”
True to her words, Kidman is active in promoting various good causes around the world.
She has supported over 20 non-profits and charities, including the Red Cross, Kids Wish Network, Cinema for Peace, etc. For 10 years running, Nicole Kidman has been a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, the United Nations’ organization for culture and education.
