Find Fun New Workouts
While Goldie sticks to the classics, she also likes to incorporate new workouts into her routine to keep things fun and fresh. In that past few years she (literally) jumped on the trampoline bandwagon and started doing workouts on a Jumpsport trampoline. "My crazy @mindup mindful movement for today. Dance, jump and twirl like nobody's watching ❤️💃🏼 and thanks @dualipa for the best addition to my trampoline playlist!," she captioned a post, including a video of her workout.
Goldie told People that she tries to "stay positive and be very, very active," and doesn't skip a day of exercise. "I walk every day and I run and do all kinds of that," she said. She especially likes heading outdoors for her walks. "Connecting with nature and the environment can improve our mood, lower blood pressure, and reduce feelings of stress and anger. Research also shows that spending time outside is linked to higher levels of concentration, creativity, and improved mental clarity," she wrote in a recent Instagram post. Even if you live in a city or urban setting, there are many ways to connect with nature. Watching a sunset, going for a walk around the neighborhood, or even just adding plants to our home, are just a few of the many ways we can reap the benefits of nature."
Goldie also stays in shape with the help of Golf. "Golf is another way to experience mindfulness," she said in an Instagram post taken from the golf 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.
Drink Juice, Eat Less
"I do a lot of juicing, I don't put a lot of food in my stomach and I don't mix my foods too much," Goldie told People about her unique approach to eating. "So if I want to have protein, I'll just eat a bowl of lentils, I won't mix it with a bunch of stuff." She added: "I don't eat a lot. I think we overeat."
Eat and Drink a Lot of Green
In an interview with Self, Goldie answered that greens were basically her solution to everything. "What's in your fridge?" they asked. "Green juice," she responded. "If you feel like you are gaining weight or getting out of shape, what do you do to stay on track?" was the next question. "Drink more green juice," she said. "What's your go-to breakfast?" And, she said: "Green juice!" As for her "typical" lunch and dinner? "Green salad and broccolini for lunch. Green watercress soup and green beans with fish for dinner."
Do Short But Effective Workouts
No time for a long workout? No problem, says Goldie. "If I don't have an hour, I'll do 15-minute intervals. Actually, it's a very good thing to do. If you're taxing yourself too much in an hour, you're taxing a lot of things."
Make Health a Lifestyle
According to Goldie's daughter, Kate Hudson, her mom's secret to success is prioritizing a healthy lifestyle over dieting. "I think it's more the stuff we eat. Like green juice — mom's been drinking green juice forever," she told Allure. "In terms of the real stuff that I've learned from mom, it's her lifestyle. She was always healthy and active and drinking something green."
