Bill Clinton: Practicing Vegan & Meditator

Former President Bill Clinton, who just celebrated his 66th birthday, is now reportedly embracing meditation for stress relief while on the road, according to a Radaronline report.

“He has a hectic life. He travels a lot on business as an ambassador for the U.S. and needs something to keep him sane,” according to a source quoted in the report. “Meditation offers him that. He has a mantra that he likes to chant and after every session he feels transformed and full of positive energy. It’s definitely doing him the world of good – he feels fitter and stronger than ever.”

Also, Clinton stated in the past his favorite book is Marcus Aurelius’ “Meditations,” a collection of personal writings by the former Roman Emperor, which offers a theme of analyzing one’s judgment of themselves and others in order to develop a cosmic perspective, the report stated.

The former President also switched to a vegan diet in 2010, which he announced during a 2010 CNN interview, following heart problems, including a quadruple bypass surgery in 2004.
