Julia Roberts romances the pause by disregarding the clock

If you have a schedule that is anything like Julia Roberts does, you’ll understand how hard it is to find a way to take some time off from it all. That is why the most successful amongst us, often steal moments away from the mayhem to romance the pause — at every given opportunity.

For Julia Roberts herself, the most pleasurable pauses are those spent with her family. Sometimes, Julia confesses, one must allow “time to just exist.” She adds that some conversations “require a complete disregard for the clock — so that you can just listen and really be present. It becomes a paradox of efficiency and presence.” So, when the wildly successful star takes off for the summer, she just doesn’t “care what time it is.”

Encouraging her family to pause around the dining table for bonding sessions, the award-winning actress insists her mantra is simple. “I think, better just to remain calm, drink your water, get your sleep and be joyful,” says Julia. We couldn’t have said it better.
