Washington: Actress Shannon Elizabeth has admitted that meditation has helped her to come to terms with the troubles in her personal life, insisting it has helped her to become a better person.

The ‘American Pie’ star split from actor Joseph Reitman in 2005 after 10 years of courtship, which made her step away from the spotlight as she learned to adjust to life as a singleton.

"I meditate. I`ve been working on myself a lot since my divorce, during the last four or five years. I`ve really been doing a lot of inner self-inspection and learning about energies and vibrations,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling WENN.

“I`ve become really spiritual. It``s not religious, it``s different. I`d much rather be working in my office until one in the morning than going out to a club or drinking or anything. I``ve always felt like maybe I``m just weird but it``s always kind of been me...

"You kind of just start discovering who you are and what`s important to you and what`s important in life and in the overall scheme of things. I think I``m just in a different phase in my life,” she added.
