Better Call Saul Star Katerina Tannenbaum Shares Swimsuit Photo From Greece
Katerina Tannenbaum is heating up Europe in her swimsuit. In a social media post the Better Call Saul and And Just Like That star shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit during a European vacation. "In Greece," she captioned the gorgeous Instagram snap, driving her followers wild. "You're so beautiful," wrote Scout Willis. "Gorgeous," commented another follower. How does the young actress approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
"I grew up dancing and doing musical theater in Portland, Oregon," Katerina told the New York Times. "I tend to overintellectualize stuff, but dancing exposes my animal side. It feels good and shuts my brain off, which is helpful for my work. Acting requires having a natural reaction rooted in your character's background, but if you're obsessing over things or are only focused on the words, you lose the moment. The magic of dance is in letting your body react."
Katerina loves spending time in the water swimming. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well.
Katerina also loves to hike. "A reminder that New York is pretty," she captioned a post. "Hiking is one of the best ways to get exercise. No matter what type of trail you find yourself on, hiking is a great whole-body workout—from head to toe and everything in between," says the National Parks Service. Some of the physical benefits include building stronger muscles and bones, improving your sense of balance, improving your heart health, and decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems. It also offers many mental health benefits, according to a Stanford University study.
She Rides Horses
Katerina loves horses. According to the American Heart Association, riding horses is great for your health. Not only does it boost cardiovascular health, but builds core strength, burns calories, and lowers blood pressure. It is also great for your mental health as it helps relax you.
She Does "Free Form" Dancing
"I don't do a traditional ballet warm-up or anything; it's free-form. I've been listening to MSC and Björk, both of which are varied and emotive. I like to dance to reggaeton," she told the New York Times. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.
