Lindsay Lohan has credited meditation with turning her life around.
The Mean Girls star endured a troubled few years which included jail time and numerous stints in rehab, but she has bounced back and is now starring in a West End production of David Mamet's play Speed-The-Plow, which garnered mostly positive reviews after it opened on Thursday night (02Oct14).
Lohan has now revealed regular meditation has helped her put the party circuit behind her and get her life back on track.
She tells Britain's Marie Claire magazine, "I have some meditations so I tend to do those quite a lot... I do Deepak Chopra's 21-day Meditation. It's the most personal thing I can think of that I have for myself. Just being able to shut off. It's a hard process, but I've been practising it for a while now and it does work.''
Lohan adds of her new life philosophy, "Every day I think, 'What's more important? What makes me happy? When do I feel my best? When do I feel I'm giving my best? Am I making other people happy? How can I make other people happy?' They are the general guidelines I try to live by. You know, it sounds selfish but you do have to put yourself first.
"There are certain jobs where you don't have to show up and put a face on but you do in the industry I work in. So it's about stepping back and recognising if things do start slipping a little bit, how to get back to the same part of life and just being OK with being alone.''
