Laura Wright in Workout Gear is "Just Grateful"

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 

Laura Wright is "recharging" in Hawaii – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the General Hospital star shows off her amazing body in workout clothes as she takes a walk on the beaches of Kauai. "Just grateful for a few days in paradise 🏝️#kauai #hanaleibay #recharge," she captioned the Instagram post. How does the 53-year-old soap star approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Beachbody Program

In Spring 2016 Laura "was really sick a lot," she told Soap Opera Digest. "I was still really struggling with the end of my marriage [to John Wright, her spouse of 21 years] — feeling better about it, but probably not really dealing with it. And I thought, 'I have to do something.'" This is when she discovered the Beachbody program and had such a great experience she became a coach. "I walk different. I stand different. I sleep different. I love how amazing my body feels," she said about her transformation. 


Progress Photos

Wright told Soap Opera Digest that her coach had her post workout photos on Facebook each day, which helped motivate her. "My coach had me showing up to a Facebook page to post after-workout pictures and that accountability really got into my head," she said. "The workout is only 30 minutes a day and no matter how late I worked, I worked out. If I got home at 8:30 or 9 at night, I worked out and posted that picture. If I had to be at work at 6:30, I was up at 5 doing my workout and posting. I was like, 'This really works!' Then I thought, 'Every workout works. So why did this click in differently for my brain?' And it was the coaching page, the community."



Laura is all about challenges, which is part of the program. "Day one of 80 down!" she posted on Instagram, per Woman's World, about the first day of one of hers. "Clearly, I'm really happy about it! Food on point — meal prepping and answering your emails!" 


Meditating and Reading

Laura does "a lot of meditating and reading," she told FBJFit. "A good book can profoundly impact your life.  Two of my favorites are The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and New Earth by Eckhart Tolle." 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. 



She also told FBJFit that she enjoys hiking. According to the National Parks Service, the physical benefits of hiking include:

  • Building stronger muscles and bones
  • Improving your sense of balance
  • Improving your heart health
  • Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems
