Amanda Seyfried Shares Swimsuit Photo Looking "So Beautiful"
Amanda Seyfried is one of the most successful actresses of all time. She's starred in hit movies like Mean Girls, Dear John, and the Mamma Mia franchise. She also recently starred in the Hulu series, The Dropout. Seyfried shared a stunning new photo on Instagram this week. In it, she lay on the beach with her dog. "So beautiful," commented one fan. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Amanda Seyfried stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Works Out Regularly
In an interview with Vogue, Seyfried opened up about her fitness routine. "Exercise is first and foremost what I need to keep doing to promote those good vibes, and I try to do it every day. That physical release of stress is so therapeutic. Even a half-hour of jump-roping, on the bike, at Pure Barre, always makes for a more relaxing day. When I don't do it, I feel stuck—I feel like I'm holding all this tension in. It's important to have that routine, especially around the holidays. Some days, I skip it and give myself a break because I'm tired—but that's also healthy."
Seyfried likes to practice meditation. She tells Vogue, "I try to meditate every day in the afternoon or early evening, when the sun goes down. It does wonders for your brain. I'm a high-anxiety person anyway, so I need as much natural help as I can get grounding myself. I have an app, Insight Timer. They have thousands of guided meditations; they have all these great chimes and background music. If you're trying to drown out the noise of New York City, I'd recommend listening to rain. The two go together so well, exercise and meditation."
She Loves Spa Treatments
Seyfried is all about self-care. She shared some of her favorite practices with Vogue. "One of my favorite things to do when I'm not working around a holiday is to go to a Korean spa. It's about the scrub and the saunas—so relaxing and it feels so good to buff your skin. I love it. I'll do the 90-minute scrub and the massage. Then I go rinse off, I go into the salt room, and then the air-conditioned room. That's such a nice treat."
She Loves Acupuncture
Another thing Seyfried does for self-care is acupuncture. She tells Vogue, "I love acupuncture, it relaxes me in a way that no massage does. They hit the points they need to hit, and I feel like I'm bettering myself. I always feel it relieves my neck tension—I always have a lot from crocheting."
In an interview with Allure, Seyfried revealed how she copes with the business of life and all the bad news happening. "You have to stay present and go day-to-day. There's bad news everywhere. A friend's mother has just been diagnosed with something horrific. And somewhere other people are dealing with something very similar because that happens all the time. When it really hits home, you're like, 'How am I going to keep crocheting and watch Spirit Riding Free with my daughter?' You actually teach yourself to distract. You just do; you compartmentalize. I've had moments when I've been sitting here, having just tiny little shocking reminders of something that I dealt with at lunch or something. And because I have OCD, I'm really adept at throwing thoughts out. It's served me well in having a child. I can be present. I can watch her have trouble putting the shorts on the Barbie, you know? It's those little moments that I'm like, I can find happiness in every little thing if I choose to do that."
