In an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail, Victoria Secret model, and founder of Kora Organics, Miranda Kerr revealed her passion for daily yoga and meditation, as well as eating a healthy, nearly vegetarian diet.
“I make sure I do half an hour of yoga in the morning so that then I’m feeling good,” she said. “Health is really wealth I think.”
She also practices meditation to relieve stress throughout the day, also practiced by her husband, actor Orlando Bloom. “If I’m in the car on the way to work or if I’m on the plane on the way to a job I’ll do a meditation,” she said in the article.
Bloom and Kerr practice a form of Buddhism, and Kerr explained that inner peace and inner beauty are very important to her. “I don’t like to talk too much about it, but what I will say is that it is very grounding and really centering,” she said.
On a recent blog post at her Kora Organics Web site, she revealed that she follows Dr. John D’Adamo’s blood type diet (she is Type A) and eats a low glycemic index, high alkaline food diet. She also drinks filtered water and eats mostly fresh produce and very little meat.
She also shared a list of some of her favorite supplements, including Grant’s Liquid Chlorophyll, Tahitian Noni Juice, and Spirulina.
In a recent article for the Belfast Telegraph in the U.K., actress Megan Fox talked about exercising her mind through her practice of meditation, which calms her body and keeps her focused.
“I also meditate. I took classes and have gotten pretty good at it,” she said in the report. “I can stay under and focus for 30 minutes. I put lavender on my forehead.”
Fox also mixes lavender oil with vanilla oil for a fragrance, “as they smell really good together,” she said.
Actor Jeff Bridges practices meditation almost every day, finding the practice “very effective,” he told contactmusic.com.
“It’s good to block out external stimulus for a set amount of time, because, for one thing, it enhances the experience when you are stimulated by something. It brings dynamics to your life,” he explained.
Bridges was one of the first to use the isolation tank developed by physician and psychoanalyst, John C. Lilly. A lightless, soundproof tank, it allows people to float in salt water at skin temperature, and is often used for meditation, relaxation and in alternative medicine.
“He developed the isolation tank, and I was one of his subjects when he was experimenting with it,” Bridges said. “The idea was to explore what consciousness is when you take away all of the senses and you’re floating. You discover that you’re projecting a lot of energy from within you, but normally you can’t distinguish it.”
