As co-host of ET and a working mom, Nancy O'Dell is faced with busy days that demand her to be consistently at the top of her game. Yet, despite the rigors of life, she manages to present herself as cool, calm, and collected when ET's cameras are rolling, and now reveals how she does it.
In a recent interview with The Huffington Post as part of their new "Hollywood Unplugged" series, O'Dell revealed how she channels serenity amid the stresses of her everyday life.
"I have three things I always do when I want to decompress: Go for a run in my neighborhood, take a long bath, or grab a magazine, turn on the music, and go out by our pool. It's a serene setting and I love the outdoors," she said.
When she needs a reminder to remain tranquil, she often turns to a prayer that hung from her wall when she was growing up: the Serenity Prayer.
"It's already hanging on my wall, just as it was hanging in my bedroom when I was a little girl," O'Dell said. "My mother gave it to me and she used to always quote it to me. I refer to it often and I always find peace from it. 'God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.'"
