Gisele Bundchen reveals the benefits of Meditation. Brazilian fashion model Gisele Bundchen reveals how meditation helped her overcome “panic attacks” and that it has also given her a new lease of life.
Bundchen who admits she has suffered with mental health issues for years, said she started meditating in her early 20’s as a way of helping her cope with her anxiety that has contributed to her well-being.
The 38-year-old model who was once one of the highest paid models in the world said: “I started meditating in my early 20s, after having severe panic attacks … that’s one of the very important tools that helped me … it actually gave me a new life. When you start being loving with yourself, being loving with others, filling your mind with affirmations and loving thoughts, you create more of that in your life, and that becomes more of your reality.”
The mum of two is married to NFL football legend, Tom Brady and has worked with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry including, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors.
Bundchen has a set routine to help with her daily wellness plan which starts at 5:30am each morning where she lights a candle and meditates in silence. Gisele added: “When you reach rock bottom, you have to figure out a way to get out of there. It gave me a new life, and an opportunity to become aware of a new world that I didn’t know existed, which was a world within myself. “It’s really helpful if I just take a few moments to be quiet for 5, 10 minutes, and take a few deep breaths, and just go into that space. And then when I come out of it, I just feel revitalised and ready to tackle so much more.”
