Jessica Alba Shares Swimsuit Video of Her Summer

Here are her top lifestyle habits.

Jessica Alba is reminiscing about summer – in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the actress and Honest founder shares a glimpse of her summer fun (in her bathing suit) and reflects on the season. "Anyone else feel like summer flew by?! would like to run this day back with the fam," she captioned the Instagram Reel. "One of a kind exquisite beauty and poise," commented one of her followers. "Gorgeous," added another. How does the 42-year-old keep herself looking forever young? Celebwell rounded up some of her top lifestyle habits. 


Video Games


Alba swears that video games keep her "super energized." She plays the sports simulation game Nintendo Switch Sports. "It's a way to get everyone, whether they're buried in their phones or work mode, to get up and you guys can just play. It's more fun to be physical," she told The Healthy.



Jessica stresses the importance of taking time for herself. "I mean, I would say I always wanted to really commit to self care and whatnot, but now it's really kind of like a non-starter. I have to. It's like the baseline of me being able to function. I'm not okay if I skip my 'me time,'" she told The Healthy. 



Jessica gets her zen on every morning. "I do guided meditations. And then when I do need to go for a walk or take a bath…you know, I can tell when I'm very agitated, like I need to go to the gym and just kind of sweat it out. Or if I need play, right? You need to giggle and you just need to have fun and be silly with your kids," she told The Healthy. "I'm not a routine person. Just, as long as I focus on doing something, then some type of guided meditation, I guess that's the heart of it. But other than that, I get bored."


Healthy Diet


Jessica eats a healthy diet, but keeps it interesting. "I don't like to eat the same thing every day. I don't like to do anything every day. I lose my interest," she told The Healthy. "Im not terribly strict. If I eat dairy or if I eat a bunch of processed food or fried foods, it gives me stomach aches. So as a kid, I always had a stomachache until I learned I didn't need to have them anymore by changing my diet."



Jessica doesn't exercise without stretching. "If you've ever been around anyone who's popped an achilles—um, my husband five years ago! I mean, you have to stretch. Being flexible is the key to you not getting locked up. And when you're sitting for too long or when you're standing for too long or doing anything, the same thing over and over again, your body starts to get locked up," she told The Healthy. "Maybe when I was like 18, I started going to Japan and you can see people in parks, stretching, and moving and doing things like Tai Chi. They look like they have a great quality of life. You know, the elderly people are walking around and are part of society and they're taking care of the babies. They're mobile. I think it's of course diet, it's your attitude and outlook, but I also think it has to do with movement. Stretching and moving around is important. Always. No matter your age."




Jessica often starts the day with a nutritious beverage. "I'll make a smoothie," she told Byrdie. What is in it? Zico coconut water, almond butter and maybe some fruit.


Sleep Health

Jessica prioritizes sleep health, relying on her Oura ring to get her Zs. "The ring tracks your sleep. Every morning I'm like, 'Okay, how good was my REM sleep? What was my deep sleep?' And before I was like, 'I feel like I didn't get enough sleep last night. I was tossing and turning.' To have confirmation that you've either had good sleep or didn't have good sleep—it just validates how you're feeling for the day: I needed that extra shot of espresso and I needed that concealer today. And it also tells you how much you should exert for the day. You got this sleep so this is the best time for you to do your fitness and then you can really go for it or take it easy. It guides you," she told Marie Claire.
