Jolie admits that just spending time with her family and kids is the number one way she deals with stress. "Sitting on the floor with the kids coloring for an hour, or going on the trampoline. You do something you love, that makes you happy, and that gives you your meditation. But I think it's good I'm not somebody who needs quiet moments because I never get them. They're very rare."
One word: meditation. "I think that for me what meditation does at the most root level is bring me back to zero and remind me of my most natural state sort my value in the world. I think we can get caught up in the challenges, physical and material and ambition…I think there are all these things set up in the world to distract us from our most basic self and our most basic instinct. There is so much fear and anxiety and it accompanies modern life and meditation is the thing that sort of reminds me of who I am and what we all are. It sounds so mystical but it's actually so basic," she said. "Meditation allows me to balance and know that I'm headed to a space that's just mine."
