Gwyneth Paltrow loves a good soak and a cocktail

Gwyneth Paltrow treats herself regularly to avoid stressing out.

Gwyneth Paltrow credits a good bath and alcohol with helping her unwind after a hectic day.

The Shakespeare in Love star has quite a busy schedule to attend to - she runs lifestyle company Goop in addition to landing high-profile roles in Hollywood films.

But even though the 43-year-old single mum-of-two has a packed agenda, Gwyneth tells WENN she avoids stress by partaking in a daily bathing and drinking ritual.

"I take a bath every single day... and I'm very partial to red wine, and I'm very partial to a dirty martini with olives!" she shares.

Gwyneth thinks it's important for her to de-stress regularly because she often finds the pressure of her day-to-day activities overwhelming.

The Royal Tenenbaums leading lady does not believe she is alone in this feeling - the star is convinced most people are nearly burnt out from the weight of their responsibilities.

"There is a danger in all of us thinking we have to do it all; it's such a high standard," she explains. "At this point I've been working so hard my whole life multi-tasking that I just want a Zanax and a glass of wine! And lie down."

Gwyneth has come to realise the importance of keeping things simple and she offers advice for anyone who may be feeling stressed out to the maximum.

"The best way to reset is to remember the beauty of life, which is human relationships, and the things that are real, like love and music that reset you and kind of ground you," she says.
