Cameron Brink Shares Swimsuit Photo "on the Beach"
Cameron Brink is hitting the beach – in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts the Stanford basketball star shows off her incredibly fit figure in a bathing suit. "Could use another walk on the beach," the NCAA star captioned the set of Instagram snaps. How does the college athlete keep her mental and physical health in check? Here are a few of her top health habits.
She Puts "The Right Kind of Pressure" on Herself
"There's always pressure," Brink told the San Francisco Chronicle . "I'm good at putting more on myself. Even last year, I was so afraid to lose and I think that was the wrong kind of motivation. This year, I'm putting it into wanting to win and finding the right kind of pressure."
She Is Open About Her Mental Struggles
Cameron keeps her loved ones in the loop when she is struggling. "Everyone has their way of coping," Brink told San Francisco Chronicle. "I'm really good about being vulnerable. Whenever I'm in a bad mood or not having a good day, people around me will know. Mental health should be seen as hygiene, like brushing your teeth every day; you should be checking in with yourself, so I haven't been afraid to share that I've struggled mentally."
Cameron is a golfer. "Get off the fairway," she captioned a cute photo of herself on the course. A comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that golf's health benefits are extensive, including mind, body, and even lifespan. Benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.
She Does Yoga
In a recent video, Cameron shows off her moves during a flow session. "Fueling my body, nourishing my mind, she captioned the video of herself recentering. "Self-care isn't selfish, it's self-love. So let's honor our bodies and minds, embracing the journey to optimal well-being."
She Goes for Walks
In this latest post, Cameron reveals that she doesn't use vacation as an excuse to put fitness on the backburner. She walks on the beach. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
