Since Sex and the City wrapped, Kristin Davis says she's been taking time to enjoy life in her 40s. Looking back, Kristin says her 20s were miserable and her 30s were better, but filled with work. "I do think that the 20s are overrated," she says. "I was just kind of miserable in my 20s, you know? I didn't know who I was."

After the show ended, Kristin says she "took a three-week nap"—emerging rested and wondering what was next for her. "We worked really hard, and we loved it, but it was a lot of work," she says. "So when the show ended and I turned 40, I thought, 'What do I really want to be doing?'"

Kristin says she decided to take the time to just breathe. "Our life is so fantastic, but it's kind of charged up, and there's all this energy at us and clothes and gossip and the craziness of our world," she says. "I wanted to try to give more and maybe expand a little bit and grow down into the earth ... take pleasure in the daily rituals. The small things."
