Model Gigi Hadid Shares Swimsuit Photo of "Love of My Life"
Gigi Hadid is spending time with her daughter – in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the supermodel and devoted mothers shows off her incredible body in a bathing suit while giving her followers a glimpse into what she has been up to lately – which included celebrating Khai's birthday on a tropical beach. "Have been celebrating our THREE YR OLD this week 🌞🌈⚡️🌻 & just so honored to get to be her mama, to get to see life through her !!!! Happy Birthday to my sweetest, smartest, spunkiest bestie !!!!!!!! 💓 DREAM KID / love of my life," she captioned the series of snaps. How does Gigi take care of herself? It all comes down to few simple but effective self-care methods.
She Doesn't Set Goals — She Lives in the Moment
"Most of the craziest things in my life, they weren't goals or dreams because I didn't really think they were possible," she told W. "If and when I make really specific goals, I can get quite tunnel-visioned. I've learned over the years that I enjoy the process more when I focus on being in the moment."
She Spends Alone Time
When Gigi was asked by W about her favorite form of self-care, she didn't hesitate or feel the need to give more than a two-word answer. "Alone time," she said.
She Goes for Walks with Her Daughter
Gigi and her daughter "walk a lot," she told The WSJ. "With lifting her and running around all day and going to the park, I get moving." Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
She Goes to Therapy
Gigi is a big advocate of talk therapy, explaining that both she and her sister, Bella, go. "There are different things that we probably both deal with on different sides, but there's always going to be something that comes together," she told Elle. "Setting boundaries, even if that's with the paparazzi—going over and saying, 'Hey, what's up? I know we've seen each other from across the street for five years, but when I'm with my kid, please don't point the camera this way.' Sometimes you have to be assertive, and that doesn't mean that it's rude. It's setting a boundary."
Gigi suffers from the autoimmune disorder Hashimoto's disease. Because it impacts her thyroid and causes fatigue, she needs to take time to rest. "I'm usually taking a nap during my lunch breaks, and I will eat my lunch when I'm retouching hair and makeup after. It's just something that I've had to deal with over the years. Sometimes it's better than other times," she told Elle. "One of the boundaries I have is that I have to tell my team when I need rest. They've always been understanding and encouraging of that, and then besides that, I think I've just learned to make it work for me, and what helps me get through the day and do my best."
