Goldie Hawn Talks Meditation & Health

Actress Goldie Hawn recently spoke to Prevention magazine about her healthy diet, regular exercise and daily meditation routine.

“I do try to do some form of exercise four days a week,” Hawn told the magazine. “At home in California, I’ll bike up the mountain, or I’ll do Pilates or spin. And I do eat a lot of greens. I eat healthy, but I’m not a vegetarian.”

She also credits her health in mind and body to her daily meditation routine – one she has been practicing since the ‘70s.

“You’ll see the benefits of meditation aren’t just in your head,” she said. “They’re as physiological as the benefits of exercise on your muscles.”

Hawn is also the founder of The Hawn Foundation, which develops programs  to help children thrive and find happiness. One of the programs is called MindUp, which teaches children mindfulness meditation.

“It’s not the idea of a particular religion that’s important; it’s the development of a spiritual life,” she said in the article. “Because spirituality creates well-being, health, and happiness.”
