Benson finds peace in NYC. "In L.A., I had anxiety all the time with the paparazzi, and my house became my safe place," she told Vogue. "It made me very codependent with friends and relationships. In New York, I can walk around and be by myself. It gives me a lot of peace."
"🧘🏽♀️✨🙌 🧿Les quiero compartir que practico la meditación hace mucho tiempo y en este mundo lleno de incertidumbre y ansiedad te ayuda a crear un estado de conciencia y paz…#meditación nunca abandones tu alma✨," Aleida once wrote. Translation: "🧘🏽♀️✨🙌 I want to share with you that I have practiced meditation for a long time and in this world full of uncertainty and anxiety it helps you create a state of consciousness and peace…#meditation never abandon your soul✨."
Suki once said about working out: "I do, I really enjoy it; I need to, I'm obsessed. I stopped working out recently as I was on a film and I was really tired and I then went to the gym a few times and found I was so much more able to perform with my body feeling that strength through it again. And mentally, I was going on set and able to do my job better as I felt stronger again. I do different things – I do Vinyasa yoga and I'll work out with a trainer Dan Roberts in Richmond Park near where I live. I do drills and running there – it's an amazing place. I love the idea of running up hills and rolling around in mud – it's my favourite time of the week and Dan really pushes me. He's hardcore. I also go to TriYoga and hot yoga (not Bikram) and I do occasional Pilates, which I should do more of."
The Ex on the Beach star is often getting some sun. Just remember: "Tanning under the sun or a sunlamp may give modest protection to those who are able to tan well. But the protection it gives does not come close to that derived from the use of a sunscreen. The larger issue is that any change in skin color from tanning is a sign of damage from ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Repeated exposure to UV radiation — whether from the sun or a tanning bed — increases your risk of premature skin aging and skin cancer," says the Mayo Clinic.
Yellowjackets' Hanratty has used TRX bands during her workouts. "Suspension training does it all. It improves muscular strength and endurance while simultaneously improving joint mobility and flexibility. Due to the unstable nature of suspension training, the exercises constantly engage your core and improve your balance. There is no limit to the progressions you can do, and everyone from the most novice exercisers to the most advanced athletes can benefit from using the TRX Suspension Trainer," says ACE Fitness.
"I'm definitely challenging myself in new ways, which I need," she told People. "I like to be able to set new goals to see what I can accomplish, and I love how flexible and strong I feel after a good workout, especially doing Pilates, which never gets easier."
Love with James Milliron helped Shama through a depression. "I had just met him. I was still going through my bouts of depression. I would get depressed every now and then. When I would go through these feelings I just did not want anybody around me, I wanted people around me, but I would just push them to go away from me. And nobody ever dared to go against that decision, everybody would leave. But he was the only one who did not leave," she said, according to Pinkvilla.com.
