Elvis' Granddaughter Riley Keough Shares Swimsuit Photo With Her Dad
Riley Keough is spending quality time with her dad in her swimsuit. In a new social media post, Elvis Presley's granddaughter shows off her amazing body in a white bathing suit while posing with her pop. "Danny," she captioned the photo, shared to her Instagram Stories. How does the Daisy Jones and the Six star maintain her impressive physique? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Riley is all about self-care. "If I'm filming and I have a day off, I'll just sit at home, read, take baths, chill out, and not go anywhere," she told Elle. How can baths do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
Riley enjoys a quick pick-me-up. "I'll drink coffee; I'll drink matcha green tea. I can't have too much because I'm like already anxious in general so if I have a bunch of coffee I'll tweak and then like, have anxiety. And then I'll crash. So if I have a long day I actually won't drink caffeine," she told Elle. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.
Yoga is the only workout Riley enjoys. "It's the only thing I enjoy that's active, I absolutely hate working out," she told The Blonde and the Brunette. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
Not Obsessing Over Her Diet
The "best diet trick" or advice Riley has ever received is not overthinking it. "Not putting too much attention on that kind of thing," she told The Blonde and the Brunette. "I feel like people who put too much attention end up unhappy. Everything in moderation I suppose."
Riley considers herself a spiritual person, describing her pull towards her career path as "a deeper kind of sense of knowingness," and a "kind of a spiritual thing," she explained to InStyle. She doesn't identify as a Buddhist, but studies the religion and considers it being a "participant of this world and whatever we're doing here." She added to Mr. Porter: "It's really important for me to be connected, somehow, spiritually," she says. "I spend a lot of time doing things that are grounding. My body is really important to me because I have Lyme disease, so I'm trying to take care of myself."
Riley approaches everything with moderation, "not be an anything-oholic," she explained to InStyle. "I'm really consciously trying to be present, and not use anything as any kind of escape, and be cognizant of when I'm doing that."
Living in Gratitude
"I'm just generally trying to be grateful for everything at the moment, trying to operate in love, and keep my heart open, and give and receive love. And not in a woo-woo way, because I definitely have hard days, and all kinds of pain and suffering and all that. But I think when you realize that's part of it, and your expectation isn't to just be feeling joy, that's been a real shift for me in finding those moments and things to smile about," Riley told InStyle.
