She Reads

Lauren is an avid reader. "I'm right where I'm supposed to be," she captioned a recent post of herself reading a book. 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 Goes for Walks

Lauren loves going for walks, a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.


She Kickboxes


In a recent interview with YM Liverpool, Lauren revealed that she took up a new sport. "I've recently started kickboxing after seeing a video of Ana De Armas rehearsing for a fight scene for her role in the latest James Bond movie," she said. "This kind of boxing has many health benefits, because it constantly requires you to think, change your position, and change your posture," physical therapist Linda Arslanian, director of rehabilitation services at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's hospital tells Harvard Health."You're swinging your arms, moving the muscles of your arms and shoulders, increasing your upper-body strength. And when you're in the boxer crouch with a wide stance, with your knees slightly bent, you're strengthening your core muscles, back, and legs."


She Hydrates

Lauren prioritizes hydration. According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day and women about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids.


She Soaks in Hot Water

Lauren also loves soaking in hot water. On her recent girl's trip, the group hit the hot tub. How can baths and hot tub soaks do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
