  1. Meditation helps me when I need to focus and calm my nerves, I play a lot of high level sport so when I’m playing a big game I always take the time to control my breathing and calm my nerves. This is a great article explaining how it benefits some of the great celebrities and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thankyou.

  2. This article is very interesting. I had no idea this many celebrities meditated! Kobe Bryant’s video was my favorite part. It clearly is a way to become one with your thoughts and inner peace! I will definitely keep this article in mind!

  3. Thanks for sharing Vince. It was interesting to see which celebrities practice meditation.

    I wasn’t surprised to see High Jackman as he does seem a happy person. I was though when it came to Russell Brand, but then I read the description. I didn’t even know that he has given up his party ways

  4. The ones that are on this list that surprise me are Russell Brand. I just would have never thought in a million years that Russell Brand and Huge Jackman meditates. Maybe, because he comes off as very outspoken and kind of wild at times.

    Also, Hugh Jackman kind of surprises me. Possibly because of when I think of Hugh Jackman the first thing that comes to mind is a stunt guy and a Wolverine character which is a tough and gritty guy.

    Are there any more to this list that you could add that people wouldn’t think they practice meditation in their personal life.

    • There are tonnes of surprise celeb which I thought wow, can’t believe they meditate. Arnold Schwarzenegger stunned me although he doesn’t practice regularly anymore, in his Mr Olympic days, he used TM often.

  5. Meditation is something that I have always wanted to do. I know that I have to put my distractions ‘aside’ first. That’s the tough part. I look forward to reading guided meditation!

  6. It is very impressive to see how many celebrities meditate. I never paid attention which celebs meditate to be honest but it is interesting to see how many do practice it.
    Meditation helps with stress but is very difficult to exercise at home. For me I have to go in nature to meditate successfully.

  7. Wow, thank you for the interesting article about celebs who meditate! I have Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s meditation series and they are a tremendous help for me. I really enjoyed hearing these celebs’ personal experience with meditation and agree on all of their claims about meditation. It is a great exercise to perform well in our career, relationship, and all other aspects of our lives. Thank you so much!

  8. I read “The 4 Hour Work Week” by Tim Ferris and you just know he has to meditate. He could only write something that incredible if he spent a lot of time alone in deep thought. It is amazing how much better your life is when you slow down. You become much more productive. Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!
