Russell Brand's divorce from Katy Perry may be finalising in the next couple of weeks, but the actor has admitted he's never been happier.
And it's all thanks to transcendental meditation!
Russell Brand and Katy Perry split at the beginning of 2012 after 14 months of marriage and their divorce is set to finalise in July.
Katy has been romantically linked to Florence + The Machine guitarist, Rob Ackroyd, and is apparently set to reveal absolutely e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g about the brakdown of her marriage in her upcoming movie.
But Russell, despite all of this, admitted that he is happier than he has ever been in his life:
“I try not to compartmentalise things too much into years, but generally speaking I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life... Of course I went through a divorce which isn’t good for anybody, but that was that bit of time - that was really lovely - this is this bit of time - this is really lovely."
Has this sudden bout of contentment got anything to do with the string of women Russell's been linked to since his split from Katy?
"I’m dedicating myself to all sorts of interesting things you know...Transcendental meditation, kundalini yoga, these things are right good for the old spirit."
Now there's a (ahem) Brand new tip for all of those in the midst of a tricky break-up!
“It’s mantra meditation. Anyone can learn to do it and anyone should...You can just use it to have a relax instead of having a fag or a drink, or you can use it to connect with a different form of consciousness."
So much for ODing on the chocolate ice cream after a messy split!
“It’s like a shower for your brain. God knows I needed one, the muck that goes on in there.”
Whatever works for you Russell. Whatever works for you...
