When she's not paddling across the Mayan Riviera for fun or cycling from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap for charity, the Los Angeles-based actress slows it down with her dog Buddha at home. Or with monks in a cave.
"I meditate, and there are different ways to do that. Being from Vancouver, I'm very outdoorsy, so I love hiking and I think there's a meditative quality in nature. But there are definitely times where I just sit at home and I’m like, ‘All right, it’s time to center.' I make sure I haven’t slipped based on social requirements or social ideas of what I should be doing or wearing or saying. I make sure I’m not starting to mold myself based on the ideas of other people. I check in with myself and ask, 'Where do you want to go? What are you doing? What are you accepting into your life that is benefiting you? What are you accepting into your life that is actually throwing you off course?' It's just a little checklist that you go through and then ponder. [Laughs.] That’s what works for me, so that’s where I go."
"Other times, I’m a massive hippie and I go on meditation retreats and sit in monk caves in Thailand. I’ll go sit with baggy fisherman pants on and my hair is all crazy."
"I'm never bored. I just got my motorcycle license so I've been riding around with friends at home. Even when I’m by myself—actually, that's a lie. I’m probably with my dog, so I’m never by myself. He’s snorting or doing something stupid beside me all the time. I call him my little fur chicken. He’s a French bulldog and the cutest thing in the world to me."
