"No filters, full look policy," she captioned the Instagram snap, attracting attention from her followers. "Cutie," commented one. "Hot chick," added another. How does the Aussie approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Simple But Healthy Diet
Jessica maintains a simple but healthy diet. "I stick to protein, veggies, carbs, brown rice, grilled salmon, steamed veggies and tuna salad," for lunch and dinner, she told myBody+Soul. "I usually have scrambled eggs, bacon, coffee, avocado and a green juice, and snack on roasted almonds, fruit – I love blueberries and pineapple – throughout the day,"
Exercising 5 Times a Week
Jessica moves almost every day of the week. "I like to mix it up, and I exercise about five times a week – usually I take weekends offPhysical 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.
Jessica is all about recovery. "I love infrared saunas," she told Body + Soul. She also loves vitamin drips. "I just love that I get all the vitamins in one, go, especially when I'm busy or traveling – it's much easier than carrying bottles around, and it goes straight into bloodstream. It makes my skin feels glowy, boosts my energy levels, and my body just feels less tired. I also think the infrared sauna has a host of benefits – it detoxes you, you sweat out all the toxins and just feel lighter," she says.
Yoga and Stretching
Jessica also does "yoga and stretching," she told Marie Claire. "I really enjoy yoga and meditation these days." 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."
Jessica takes classes at a popular Los Angeles studio. "I love Tracy Anderson, I do the dance/cardio classes there. I always think I look the best when I'm doing a combination of different things," she told Marie Claire. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.
Jessica likes to fight as well. "One day I'll be doing dance cardio and the next day I'll be doing boxing. My body reacts to when I change it around, so I try not to let it get too comfortable, plus I get really bored with the same old thing," she told Marie Claire. "Boxing is good for your mind too because you're learning a skill, it's not as if you're just doing boring gym workout. It actually makes you really ripped because you're constantly holding up your gloves."
