As Twitter users joked they wanted to #consciouslyuncouple from everything from high-calorie muffins to the New York Knicks, the suddenly single actress leaped in to explain what she meant, posting a report on her Goop site from her lifestyle gurus.
It may be hard to find – her site crashed after announcing the separation from Chris Martin – but here's what came from Dr. Habib Sadeghi and Dr. Sherry Sami:
"By choosing to handle your uncoupling in a conscious way, regardless of what's happening with your spouse, you'll see that although it looks like everything is coming apart; it's actually all coming back together."
So what do you think? Should "Consciously Uncoupling" be the new word for "Divorce"?
