How does Serena Williams relax?

Serena Williams revealed that she rarely gets time to relax. Since Olympia is still young, she also requires a lot of attention.

“When I sleep because I don’t relax otherwise or if Olympia’s asleep, then I’m so relaxed. But now she can tell I’m a little more anxious when she woke up and we always watch paw patrol when she wakes up, so yeah.”

She had once told CNBC Make It in an interview that she uses Meditation as a possible cure for her problems.

Something I do every day is [to] completely turn my brain off, which sounds weird but because I work so much between tennis and running my other properties — Serena Ventures and Serena Clothing. But it’s a lot so I just need to turn my brain off and not think about anything.”

“Sometimes it’s mediation. Sometimes it’s watching a program [on TV] that has nothing to do with anything, like something that is silly or fun.” 

It’s a lot easier now because I can just watch my baby,” Williams says. “It really helps me to focus on her and focus on the moment and not think about anything else. And I purposely do that with her because I know that I just need to shut off.”
