Gracie Hunt in Swimsuit Reveals "Better Habits" for New Year

Here are her top tips for having a healthy 2024.

Gracie Hunt is revealing her 2024 health goals – in her swimsuit. In a new social media post, the Kansas City Chiefs heiress shows off her incredible body in a bathing suit during a Cabo San Lucas, Mexico getaway. "New Year = better habits🙌🏼💯 If you're like me and resolved to level up this year, swipe through the post for some simple things that have positively impacted my life and/or that I want to incorporate more of in 2024," she captioned the post. "Remember, progress takes time, so be patient with yourself. Celebrate even the smallest victories and keep pushing forward. Good luck with your healthy habits." What is on her list? Celebwell rounded up her top recommendations for health and wellness in the new year. 


Exercise Consistently

"Exercise consistently," Gracie suggests in her first tip. "Set a realistic exercise schedule starting with shorter workouts and gradually increasing duration and intensity over time," is one of her suggestions. Another? "Take the stairs," she writes. "Choose stairs over elevators or escalators whenever possible. It adds up to significant calorie burn and increases cardiovascular fitness." 


Eat Clean

Gracie also says to "Eat cleaner," in 2024. "Focus on whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. Limit processed foods and sugary snacks. She also suggests experimenting with cooking methods of vegetables to "make veggies more enjoyable." 




Hydration is also key, according to Gracie. "Drink more water. Carry a water bottle and set goals to drink a certain amount each day. Track your progress," she writes. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.


Do Yoga

"Start yoga," suggests Gracie as another way to prioritize health in the new year. "Try beginner-friendly yoga videos or join a beginner's class. Focus on proper form and gradually increase difficulty." 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."



Another important health aspect that Gracie touches upon. "Manage stress," she writes. "Practice deep breathing, meditation, or engaging in activities you enjoy. Prioritize self-care and don't let setbacks derail you," she says. A good way to do this is to "Disconnect and meditate," she writes. "Start each day away from electronics with 15 minutes of quiet time. It improves mood, reduces anxiety and fosters kindness." Gracie is spot-on about meditation. "When you meditate, you may clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress," says the Mayo Clinic. Benefits include:

  • Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
  • Building skills to manage your stress
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Focusing on the present
  • Reducing negative emotions
  • Increasing imagination and creativity
  • Increasing patience and tolerance
  • Lowering resting heart rate
  • Lowering resting blood pressure
  • Improving sleep quality



Also, "Read more books," says Gracie. "Set aside dedicated time each day or week. Create a cozy reading nook. Join a book club or explore different genres." One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals.
