One of the challenges of this business, getting enough sleep. We run on empty a lot. When I was younger I used to get sick a lot, from exhaustion and stress. Somehow I have managed not to on this show, which is amazing considering that it has just been insanely stressful. But I lead a pretty clem life compared to my wild days when I first got started. I don’t smoke, I have one occasional cocktail in the evening, and I eat very healthfully.
But I do not get enough sleep, that is a definite. I am exhausted all the time.

Have you found any time to meditate? I remember you mentioning it last year when you were getting acclimated back to Scotland–you were so jetlag.
I think we are signing up for transcendental meditation!
