Demi Moore in Workout Gear Goes Hiking With Rumer Willis

Why she doesn’t frown anymore.

Winter in California is a special time—just ask Demi Moore, who recently hit the Los Angeles hiking trails with cold temperatures and sunny skies. Moore, 61, shared pictures and video of herself hiking in the hills with daughter Rumer Willis and other loved ones, including an adorable little pup that had no issue keeping up with the gang. "Love you mama," commented Rumer. Moore is rightfully considered an icon these days—here's how she is thriving in her 60s.


Lots of Hiking

Moore is constantly hitting the trails with her friends and family, a workout that not only benefits the body but supports mental health ."The physiological response to being outside in nature is real, and it's measurable," says Michelle Kondo, a research social scientist with the USDA Forest Service's Northern Research Station in an article on their website. "There are many physical and psychological benefits of nature that scientists have observed, which can better help us understand how nature supports wellness in the body, mind and community."


Turn That Frown Upside Down

Moore read a book from 1919 which featured some rather suspect beauty advice for women, but says something in the book stuck with her. "There was one thing I took away, because I think it's true—the author said not to frown because at a certain point it will stick," she tells W Magazine. "And what speaks to me here is that I do believe that when we hold upset, anger, hurt, pain or bitterness, it ages us and we wear it. That isn't to say we are always going to feel happy. But it's important not to hold on to things."


Swinging 60s

Moore found turning 60 to be liberating. "Not being defined by a number and instead being defined by my experience," she tells PEOPLE. "You hit 59 and you're already thinking, 'Well, I'm going to be 60.' It feels very liberating. When I think of my grandmother at 60, she in a way seemed to be already resigned to being old. But I feel, in so many ways, more alive and present than ever."


Beauty From the Inside

Moore sees facialist and energy healer Terri Lawton in Los Angeles. "It's kind of a whole mind-body experience," she tells W Magazine. "I also really respect her opinion on products, because I know it's very aligned with my view that they have to be active, but really clean… I think my biggest thing is really that less is more, as it's much easier to keep a routine going if we keep it simple, so it's doable. Look, I don't have any super big secret. But I definitely think beauty starts on the inside. You can do anything you want to the outside, but if the inside isn't looking or feeling good, then I don't know if anything you do on the outside is going to be good enough."


Acceptance With Aging

Moore is philosophical about the changes that come with aging. "Because you know, things do change," she tells W Magazine. "The biggest difference, I think, is that I'm not in nearly as good shape physically as I have been before, and I have skin going in a direction that I would prefer it not go. There are things that just come with getting older. But I think my big mantra for this year is about acceptance."
