She a Mountain Trekker

In a recent Instagram post Larter shared how she did a wellness retreat that included mountain trekking. "When you trek to 10,922 ft and nature delivers you a chair to lean back and soak it all in you know you are in the right place. I just experienced the transformation that comes from Reset. It is a wellness retreat in the mountains of Telluride where you detox from all the stress, noise, and draining technology to get back to the core of your being. Gorgeous trekking in mountain fresh air, nourishing plant-based food, nurturing body therapies, sound baths, are all part of the daily schedule to get back on track. It was so special to connect with people that want to live their best lives and take a moment to reflect on my life and my family. Thank you to the incredible team at Reset for creating this extraordinary program. If all you can do is hike up that mountain, you have succeeded. @resettelluride" states,  "Walking and hiking can increase the strength in your muscles, especially your calf, quadriceps and hamstring muscles. This will result in improved muscle definition and can prevent muscle loss. Strengthening your leg muscles will also increase your metabolism and aid in fat loss – win, win!"


She Likes to Ski

The actress enjoys skilling and if you scroll through her Instagram account, you'll see plenty of pics of her on the slopes. According to the University of New Hampshire, "The physical aspect is obvious, however many individuals, especially those that have never skied before, may not realize how much brain power goes into the sport. Skiing is a proprioceptive activity. Proprioception is an aspect of fitness that is defined as one's ability to feel the position of different body parts and the effort that goes into moving them. This is almost defines skiing because skiing involves quite a bit of balance and coordination. There are so many slight movements and positions of your body that you must be conscious of to ski well. The more you ski the more you strengthen your ability to be aware of the movement of your body parts. This is important because proprioception weakens with age so the more you are involved in proprioceptive activities the less it will diminish."


She Loves to Cook

Larter often shows off her cooking skills on social media and offers fans recipes of her favorite home cooked meals. According to, "Preparing healthy meals at home can support your immune system and reduce the risk of illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, and diabetes. It can give you more energy, improve how you sleep at night, and help you better manage health problems. In women, cooking healthy food can help reduce symptoms of PMS and menopause, and boost fertility."


She Has a Weekly Routine

Larter shared with her fans that she starts off her week by cooking a healthy meal and establishes a routine of clean eating. She wrote, "Routine is what gives me balance, and I try to start my Mondays off strong with clean and healthy eating. I usually do Salmon Teriyaki tor the kids and with fresh herbs for me. Our beautiful neighbor dropped off some fresh beets which I roasted and then simply sautéed the beet greens in garlic and evoo. By the weekend it's dinners out, lots of wine, and hot dogs for the kids… starting the week with a healthy meal with the kids is how I get on track. What is your trick? #kitchenrevelry #mondaymeals" Northwestern Medicine states, "People are creatures of habit, and routines offer a way to promote health and wellness through structure and organization. Having a routine can greatly improve your health. 

Many people who don't have any type of routine suffer from:

–Stress. No routine often means having the constant worry of 'when will I get it all done.'

–Poor sleep. Without a daily routine at work and/or home, you may find yourself playing catch-up with yesterday's to-do list. If you're always behind on what should have been done the day before, you're likely also staying awake worrying about what didn't.

–Poor eating. Unhealthy diets (like eating lots of fast food) become the norm if there isn't time scheduled for grocery shopping. Quick, unhealthy substitutes become the next best food option.

–Poor physical condition. Working out usually requires some advance planning.

Ineffective use of time. Often, no routine means you simply run out of time, leaving things undone and not making the most of your time."


She Has a Positive Outlook
