She's an "Elastic Girl"
"Ready for my yoga👍🙏," Alessia has posted in the past, using the hashtags: #elasticgirl #breathe #yoga #yogaeverywhere #yogagirl #fitness #health. Try a mountain pose. Says the Cleveland Clinic: "Alignment Points: Stand tall with feet parallel and relax your tailbone down for a neutral pelvis. Lift up through the spine. Tuck your chin in slightly, and keep your head balanced over your shoulders. Benefits of Pose: Increases awareness of posture overall. Lengthens the entire spine. Can help improve balance when practiced with eyes closed.
She Eats Spirulina Pasta
"Spirulina is known primarily for its high protein content," Sydney Greene, MS, RD, tells our sister site Eat This, Not That!, which adds: "However, in order to consume 15-20 grams of protein per meal, you would have to supplement it with other high protein foods. For example, one tablespoon of powdered spirulina yields 6 grams of protein, which is a lot, considering it's only 45 calories. Add spirulina to smoothies with a serving of plain Greek yogurt in it to increase that protein intake."
She Uses Advanced Peptides for Her Skin
Collagen peptides may or may not help your skin. Adding protein to your diet is essential. "From a general health perspective, it is important to ensure adequate protein within your diet. As you age, your protein needs increase slightly to maintain lean body mass. Consuming foods that contain the primary amino acids that make up collagen may help support skin, hair, nail and joint health as you age," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Takes Walks
The Cleveland Clinic spoke with Michael Roizen, MD about walking and he says: "Tracking your steps with an app that features a pedometer is key to walking success, Dr. Roizen says. People who love their apps or pedometers log a reported 2,000 more steps per day. Why? The reward comes from witnessing your success in real time, and enjoying the mental reward of celebrating your step-based accomplishments.
She Loves to Swim
"Swimming can improve mood in both men and women. For people with fibromyalgia, swimming can decrease anxiety, and exercise therapy in warm water can decrease depression and improve mood. Water-based exercise can improve the health of pregnant people and has a positive effect on the pregnant person's mental health. Parents of children with developmental disabilities find that recreational activities, such as swimming, improve family connections," says the CDC.
