Gwyneth Paltrow has a simple way of feeling connected to husband Brad Falchuk every morning.
During a Zoom interview with PEOPLE to discuss her new partnership with anti-wrinkle injection treatment Xeomin, the Goop founder opened up about her wellness routine during quarantine — even if "the drinking and the grilled cheeses" are getting in the way.
"First of all, I try to sleep well, because that's the cornerstone to everything," she said in the latest PEOPLE issue, on stands Friday. "And then in the morning, I meditate. Now every morning I recommitted to my meditation during quarantine because I was very sporadic with it. So I do that every morning when I wake up for 20 minutes. My husband just learned [transcendental meditation] as well. So we do it together, which is really nice."
Paltrow, 47, and Falchuk, 49, are celebrating their second wedding anniversary this month after tying the knot in an intimate ceremony at her East Hampton home in September 2018. The couple, who has been together since 2014, have often been seen on walks around their Los Angeles neighborhood throughout the COVID-19 social distancing period.

In the interview, Paltrow also talked about her daughter Apple's burgeoning status as a teen fashionista. The actress described Apple (whom she shares with ex-husband Chris Martin) as a “beauty queen” and admitted “she is glamorous in a way that I’m not.”
“She's very, very into makeup, which I'm not,” she said. “She knows how to do it perfect winged eyeliner. She gave herself acrylic nails. She's a beauty queen.”
Paltrow continued, “She loves to play in my closet,” adding, “I have saved everything for her since 15 years before I had her. I save everything. Not everything, but every red carpet look I have saved for her.”

I can’t believe I’m actually writing these words but… happy sweet sixteen my darling girl. You are the light of my heart, you are pure joy. You are wickedly intelligent and you have the best, most dry, most brilliant sense of humor. I have the best time being your mom. I love our nightly evening chats when I really get to hear what’s on your mind. You work hard to get whatever it is you want to achieve, and you have grit and responsibility in spades. I am so damn lucky to be your mother, you beautiful, kind young woman. Thank you for choosing me. I adore you to the moon and back a zillion times. I’m sorry you are having this particular birthday during these circumstances, but as always with you, you find the best in everything. 💝
In May, Paltrow took social media by storm when she shared two rare photos of her gorgeous daughter in honor of her 16th birthday. Apple donned a Reformation puff-shoulder frock that featured a plunging neckline and a ruffled hem in the viral Instagram post, which garnered sweet comments from celebrities including Kate Hudson, Derek Blasberg and Elle Macpherson.
"I can't believe I’m actually writing these words but… happy sweet sixteen my darling girl," Paltrow wrote alongside the photos on Instagram. "You are the light of my heart, you are pure joy. You are wickedly intelligent and you have the best, most dry, most brilliant sense of humor. I have the best time being your mom. I love our nightly evening chats when I really get to hear what’s on your mind. You work hard to get whatever it is you want to achieve, and you have grit and responsibility in spades."
