Kourtney Kardashian has a lot to juggle.

The 38-year-old star not only appears in nearly every episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and poses for brands like Calvin Klein and PrettyLittleThing. She also is a single mother to three kids: Mason, eight, Penelope, five, and Reign, three.

But on Thursday the eldest Kardashian sister revealed on her site kourtneykardashian.com that she has a few tricks up her sleeve when it comes to keeping her cool.

That same day the bombshell shared a photo to Instagram of her lean body as she made a shake in her kitchen.

In a post titled How Meditation Helps Me the ex of Scott Disick said: ‘Every day, I try to wake up 20 minutes early—before the kids get up—to meditate.

And she picks a very unusual place in her gigantic Calabash, California mansion she bought for $8.5m in 2014.

‘I usually sit on my bathroom floor on a mat in front of the bathtub. Early in the morning, this room has lots of natural light and is really quiet. Sometimes I like to set an intention for the day too.’

‘I usually sit on my bathroom floor on a mat in front of the bathtub. Early in the morning, this room has lots of natural light and is really quiet. Sometimes I like to set an intention for the day too.’

The girlfriend of Younes Bendjima then said: ‘I have been practicing mindful meditation, which is a method of checking in with yourself by focusing on your breath, awareness and being present.

‘If my mind wanders, I try to bring back my focus to breathing.’

She ended with: ‘Having a calm start to the day is really grounding and something I do whenever I can make time.’

Next came her Self-Care Checklist.

‘Even when my schedule is full, I try to get some self-care in daily. It’s so important for a healthy balance in life.’

After meditation she reads daily devotionals. 

‘Another thing I try to do early in the morning is read from my daily devotional book. It’s one page a day and it’s always so spot-on. No matter what is going on in my life, somehow the passage usually relates!’ said the petite star.

She also spends time outside. ‘I love being outside and try to hike in the canyons a few times a month.’

And of course there is exercise in the morning.  

‘I usually work out five to six times a week when I’m home and doing my normal routine.

‘I have found that mornings are the best time for me to exercise, since finding time at the end of a hectic day is more difficult. I stick to mornings and make sure it’s on my schedule.’

And she ends with Wind Down Before Bedtime: ‘At the end of a day, it’s so necessary to relax and unplug!’

This post comes after the beauty revealed her weight in a deleted scene from Sunday’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, telling sister Khloé Kardashian that she weighs-in at just 98 pounds.

In the E! clip the sisters are chatting with pal Simon Gebrelul in Khloe’s kitchen as Kourtney makes a salad. 

‘I had to run inside so fast, I thought I would melt,’ Kourtney said.

Khloe told Simon, ‘You know she’s 97 pounds?’ to which Kourtney replied, ‘Guess what? I gained a pound – I’m 98’ pounds ‘since yesterday to today.’

The 5ft reality TV diva then said that her son Mason, eight, is catching up with her.

‘You know Mason is 62,’ she said, noting that her eldest son is only 36 pounds away from weighing the same as her.

In April 2015 the eldest of the Kardashian siblings took to social media to reveal that through diet and exercise, she was down to 116 pounds, less than five months after welcoming her son Reign on December 14, 2014.

‘I’m five feet tall, so everyone relax, she wrote in the caption adjacent to the post. ‘I’m on a workout kick, trying to bring some Monday motivation.’

Kourtney, who’s dating model Younes Bendjima, 24, explained on her app/website in 2017 that one of her dietary keys is staying away from the sweet stuff.

‘I always try to avoid sugar – especially refined sugar – for so many reasons,’ she said. ‘First, sugar is addictive and I notice that after I eat it, I need it. 

‘Sugar doesn’t sustain you when you actually need energy, like for a workout. Also, when I eat sugar, I find that more cellulite appears.’ 

Keeping Up With The Kardashians airs Sundays at 9pm on E!Stream in the UK and Ireland on hayu

Was Leonardo DiCaprio’s Death in Titanic really Rose’s Fault?

It has been 20 years since the release of Titanic, but people still discuss whether Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jack had to die. Actor Billy Zane has an answer.

Zane played Cal Hockley in the 1997 James Cameron directorial.

“Your hero had to die. I don’t know what else would have done it. It had to happen,” Zane told People magazine.

The scene has fuelled debates over the fact that Jack perished in the icy water while actress Kate Winslet’s character Rose DeWitt Bukater stayed safe on a floating wooden door at the end of the movie.

Earlier, Cameron had insisted that he made an “artistic choice” to kill off Jack.

“Obviously it was an artistic choice, the [door] was just big enough to hold her, and not big enough to hold him… I think it’s all kind of silly, really, that we are having this discussion 20 years later,” Cameron said.

“But it does show that the film was effective in making Jack so endearing to the audience that it hurts them to see him die. Had he lived, the ending of the film would have been meaningless,” he added.

p>Angelina Jolie encourages her daughters to “fight” for women’s rights around the globe. The 42-year-old actress said in the March issue of Elle that she hopes 13-year-old Zahara, 11-year-old Shiloh and 9-year-old Vivienne will share her love of service and dedication to humanitarian work.

“I tell my daughters, ‘What sets you apart is what you are willing to do for others. Anyone can put on a dress and makeup. It’s your mind that will define you,'” Jolie said.

“‘Find out who you are, what you think, and what you stand for. And fight for others to have those same freedoms. A life of service is worth living,'” she added.

Jolie was named a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in 2001, and has completed nearly 60 field missions for the agency. She said her patriotism goes “hand in hand” with her service.

“I’m very patriotic,” the star said. “For me, it goes hand in hand with being proud of what America stands for. For instance, I’m the only person in my house who was born in America.”

“It’s only because we are a country based on people of different backgrounds and faiths coming together that I can have this family,” she added. “My daughters have the freedoms they have because of being American. And we are at our best when we are fighting for others to have the same rights. Particularly other women.”

Jolie shares Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and sons Maddox, Pax and Knox with ex-husband Brad Pitt. She previously told People she feels especially obligated to guide her children through their “formative years.”

“We all have our difficult times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids. They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that,” the actress said in September.

“Everything will be around the children,” she added. “I haven’t worked for over a year now because they needed me home. Everything was just stopped. I’m really sitting and talking with them because everything affects them.”

 

Erm, This Singer Sticks Tape Over His Eyes to Avoid Seeing Women

Out of sight, out of mine is an adage that appears to have been taken very literally by popular Orthodox singer-songwriter Yonatan Razel of late. 

Footage emerged on Monday in which Razel is seen performing at a recent concert with black tape stuck across his eyes as he continues to sing and play the keyboard, so as to avoid looking at women dancing close to the stage as he played.

Jewish law prohibits men from watching women dance since it may sexually arouse them, so Razel came up with his innovative solution to keep his sexual desires firmly in check. 

 

A formal response to the footage for the singer read “Yontan Razel’s face was uncovered for the entire performance. The part in which he is seen with his eyes covered happened for mere minutes, when women formed dance circles at the foot of the stage. This was his personal decision so as not to remain with uncovered eyes in front of the dancing women. Afterwards, he removed the covering and continued to perform.”
