According to an article in the Daily Mail Online this morning, former US President Bill Clinton is learning the art of meditation to help relax – part of a plan to improve the health of his heart. President Clinton, who started a vegan diet in August of last year, has had a host of health problems relating to the heart. Clinton underwent a quadruple bypass in 2004 and stent surgery in 2010.
Clinton has reportedly employed the services of a Buddhist monk to provide him with private meditation instruction to help him relax. A source at the gossip site Radar Online said, “Meditation offers him that, he has a mantra that he likes to chant and after every session he feels transformed and full of positive energy. It’s definitely doing him the world of good — he feels fitter and stronger than ever.”
