    James Corden has taken up transcendental meditation

    The 'Late Late Show' host recently completed a four-day course on the mindfulness practise and now finds the time to do it every day because he finds it so "beneficial" for his wellbeing


    He said: "I have started doing transcendental meditation. I went to see a guy. I'd highly recommend it.

    "You do a course, then at the end of it you have these tools where, every day, you give yourself 20 min¬utes of silence to let your thoughts be whatever they are, and I've found that very, very beneficial.

    "I don't consider it to be something particular to LA but I really enjoy it.

    "Normally if I have a spare 20 minutes, I'll be on my phone, I'll be watching something, and that's it - now I do this. It's great."

    The 43-year-old presenter - who has Max, 11, Carey, seven, and four-year-old Charlotte with wife Julia - recently announced he will leave 'The Late Late Show' next year and though he acknowledged it would have been "easy" to stay, he's ready to push himself into a new challenge.

    He told The Sun newspaper: "The easiest thing in the world would have been to just stay, take the money and continue on, but I sort of felt like 'I wonder if there's something else out there?'

    "I just couldn't shake the feeling that perhaps it was time. I want to spend more time with my family and I never wanted the show to feel like it had outstayed its welcome.

    "We don't really know where we are going to be or what we are going to do - that's stuff we've got to figure out. But it will be nice to have some more flexibility, and it's exciting.

    "There are some things that I would like to write and I hope there will be other things for me to do. But we still have a year left in the US and I want to make it the best one yet."

    James is keen to do another talk show one day but it won't be his next job.

    He said: "I would be open to hosting another talk show at some point though, because I really love doing it.

    "But I sort of feel like right now it would be odd to leave this show, and try and do something similar somewhere else."
