She Skis

Aurora loves skiing. "You belong somewhere you feel free," she captioned a video from one of her recent ski trips. Research has linked downhill skiing to a number of health benefits. In addition to promoting physical fitness, it may decrease risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Studies have also found that the more frequently a person skis, prevalence of known hypercholesterolemia, systemic hypertension, diabetes, the frequency of mental stress and the occurrence of memory deficits declines. 


She Rides Bikes

Aurora also rides bikes, recommended by the Cleveland Clinic because it is a low-impact aerobic exercise and is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis. 


She Does Water Workouts

Aurora does water workouts, which count as physical activity – anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans


She Does Yoga and Pilates

"Fun fact: In my early 20's I was a Yoga and Pilates instructor," Aurora revealed in a post. "Working on my flexibility has always been especially important to me because there is more to taking care of ourselves than just being active." "Yoga's incorporation of meditation and breathing can help improve a person's mental well-being," says the American Osteopathic Association. "Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration," says Natalie Nevins, DO, a board-certified osteopathic family physician and certified Kundalini Yoga instructor in Hollywood, California, to the Association.


She Meditates

Aurora takes care of her mind, as well. "Don't just do something. Sit there!🙃#zenaf," she captioned a recent Instagram photo of herself getting her zen on. "When you meditate, you may clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress," says the Mayo Clinic. Benefits include:

  • Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
  • Building skills to manage your stress
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Focusing on the present
  • Reducing negative emotions
  • Increasing imagination and creativity
  • Increasing patience and tolerance
  • Lowering resting heart rate
  • Lowering resting blood pressure
  • Improving sleep quality


She Plays Tennis

Aurora also plays tennis. "Give me a visor and a tennis skirt and call me Sharapova! Jk you may notice I'm a better ball collector than competitor 🤣 thanks to @theclearcut for the lesson and thanks to @alo for putting shorts under this skirt," she captioned this post. According to ACE Fitness tennis blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility, and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," they say. 


She Does Habit Resets

"I'm going on a trip and you're invited!!!! Not a road trip or an acid trip, but a 45 day journey to reset my "happy habits". Happy habits are things you do that release the happy chemicals: serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphin in ways that are good for you and have GOOD side effects!" she wrote in a post, revealing that after reading a book, Habits of a Happy Brain, she was inspired to examine the neural pathways "hardwired in my brain from repetition," she wrote. "Some of mine serve me well. Exercise, for instance, is second nature at this point- I need it, so I do it often and I don't think much about it. Other neural pathways I've hardwired don't serve me as well, like that itch for a glass of wine as 5 o'clock rolls around. I'm all for relaxing but do I really want it hardwired in my brain that it's time for a drink? I think not," she continued.Research shows that it takes 45 days to build a new habit by rerouting the electricity in your brain to flow down a new pathway. 45 days is nothing! We got this," she said, revealing that her new habits would be daily meditation, journaling daily, and drinking mocktails."
