What do Oprah, Ray Dalio, and Lady Gaga have in common? The answer might surprise you! According to a CNBC article, these widely successful celebrities have all discovered the transformative power of Meditation to gain a deeper level of relaxation, focus, and intention—all of which have played a pivotal role in their success.
In fact, meditation is one of the fastest-growing practices among celebrities precisely because of its mental and physical benefits. Billionaire Ray Dalio has attributed Meditation to his ability to overcome devastating financial setbacks, while Oprah and Lady Gaga (aka Stefani Germanotta) both use it as a way of maintaining optimum mental health.
Winfrey, 65, has said that learning how to meditate was ”[o]ne of the most life-enhancing things I ever did,” she told comedian Amy Schumer in a 2018 interview for Oprah’s “Super Soul Conversations.”
After having such a positive experience with transcendental meditation, Winfrey brought a teacher into her production company at the time, Harpo Studios, to teach the employees how to meditate, she said in a 2011 interview with “The Dr. Oz Show.”
The staff would take two breaks during the day to meditate. ”It’s more important than the work you are doing,” Winfrey said. ”[It] brings a kind of energy and an intensity of energy, an intention that we have never had before.”
