Actor Kate Hudson said happiness is a state of mind and there have been times she has had to put up a brave front despite being unhappy.
The 38-year-old actor said it is not possible for any person to be perpetually happy.
“I’d be a crazy person if I was happy all the time. Maybe my extroverted nature makes people think I am. And I do love life.”
“But I’ve had times in my life that were intensely not coming from a happy place,” Hudson told Net-A-Porter’s The Edit.
The “Deepwater Horizon” actor also shared that practising transcendental meditation has helped her achieve a balance in life.
“Contentment takes discipline. Exercise and meditation improve our moods and keep us healthy. So that’s what I do.”
“I’ve tried all kinds of yoga, but transcendental meditation is the one I always go back to. It’s so simple and quiet,” she said.
