Karla Mosley in Workout Gear Says "Tree Me" During Hike

“Tree me. 3 hour solo trek - check! Now to the ocean.”

Karla Mosley is an actress and singer. She's known for her roles on the soap operas Guiding Light, The Bold & The Beautiful, and The Young & The Restless. Mosley likes to go hiking. She shared a set of hiking photos and videos on Instagram in March. She captioned the post, "Tree me. 3 hour solo trek – check! Now to the ocean." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Karla Mosley stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Eats Kale

Mosley likes kale, and shared this photo on Instagram of herself eating a kale salad. The Mayo Clinic states that kale has a lot of benefits. "Kale is a nutrition superstar due to the amounts of vitamins A, B6, C, K, folate, fiber, carotenoids and manganese it contains. One cup of raw kale has just 20 calories. The Department of Agriculture's MyPlate recommends any child and adult who is over the age of 9 eat at least 1.5–2 cups of dark-green vegetables every week."


She Takes Care Of Her Mental Health


Mosley wrote an essay for Glamour talking about recovering from an eating disorder and taking care of her mental state. "I consciously changed the belief that I had to be a certain body type to work. I appreciate the opportunities I now have to be a healthy, black woman on TV, film, and stage. And I know that I'm only one version of that. I'm also happy to see—and to create through my own production and theater companies—spaces that include a variety of people and experiences."


She Has Perspective

In her Glamour essay, Mosley talked about having perspective. "The gift of perspective I've gained from my community is understanding that my friends, my fans, my collaborators, and my family don't love me because of my dress size. They don't love me because I know the words to every nineties hip-hop and R&B song (though I wish I did). They love me because of the essence of me. Beauty comes from inside. As does blackness. And I now know that, without changing a damn thing, I have both."


She Dances

Mosley shared this video on Instagram of herself and some friends taking a dance class. Harvard Health states that dance has a lot of benefits. "The evidence for the health benefits of exercise is indisputable. Physiologic studies have demonstrated that regular activity builds muscle and bone, reduces fat, increases aerobic capacity, lowers blood pressure, and improves the ratio of 'good' to 'bad' cholesterol. Dance has been shown to have all the benefits of other forms of exercise."


She Hikes

Mosley shares a lot of hiking posts on Instagram. Harvard Medical School assistant professor, Dr. Edward Phillips, says that hiking has a lot of benefits. "Hiking over uneven terrain requires more energy than walking on a level surface, so it burns more calories. If you are hiking uphill, your body has to work even harder. A rigorous hike may offer many of the same physical benefits as interval training, which alternates low- and high-intensity exercise to increase cardiovascular fitness. During a hike, your heart rate goes up as you move up an incline and drops when you head downhill."
