It may seem like pop superstar Katy Perry’s life is all glitter, bows, and dance parties with Left Shark. But life on the road and performing on the world’s biggest stages can get stressful and overwhelming. (Especially when, ahem, Left Shark can’t keep the choreography straight.) Perry’s solution for staying sane? Transcendental Meditation.

In a new video, Perry, a self-proclaimed “TM-er for five years now,” encourages fans to try what she credits as one of the most important tools in her life. “Life can sometimes get very difficult and chaotic, and sometimes you have to give yourself a break,” she says. “You have to give yourself a moment to revive, unplug, rejuvenate, and Transcendental Meditation does that for me.”

Transcendental Meditation is the practice of sitting for 20 minutes, twice a day, repeating a personal mantra given to you by a TM teacher. The technique is based on an ancient Indian process of enlightenment, and has become increasingly popular among celebrities and the less-famous (hello) alike.

“Life can sometimes get very difficult and chaotic, and sometimes you have to give yourself a break”

Perry says she meditates before writing songs, before going onstage, when she’s been on social media too much, and when her “mind starts to feel like mush.” The result? “I feel like the pathways in my brain open up, like they’ve had cobwebs on them for days or weeks, and I feel my most sharp,” she says.

You’re gonna hear her roar, indeed. But in a minute. She’s meditating right now.

Think you’re not the meditation type? Nightline anchor (and skeptical newsman) Dan Harris debunks the three biggest meditation myths.
