"I would try meditations because I knew that there was something there for me in meditation, but every time that I would try and do it, I was just like 'I cannot meditate,'" she said during a David Lynch Foundation gathering about trying other forms of meditation before learning Transcendental Meditation (TM). Diaz said a friend recommended TM to her: "I learned and it was exactly what I needed. The thing that blew me away the most about it was that it was the easiest thing that I had ever done. Not the easiest meditation, but the easiest thing I have ever learned."
