She Sets Intentions
Spears recently shared a post about declaring your intentions, and focusing on your goals. She captioned the post, "My word of the week is intention … it has a lot of different meanings … what do you intend to do today ??? What is your intention by doing so … and also it's known to heal … with that said my intention by what I'm reading now by even sending this message about this beautiful word is one thing and one thing only … to help spread the word !!!! My intention is to merely exist in hopes that others see me write … dance … cry … laugh … sing … or just speak !!!! They know I exist to be a good person …. period !!!!"
In the swimsuit share, Spears is seen guzzling a bottle of water. "Every day you lose water through your breath, perspiration, urine and bowel movements. For your body to function properly, you must replenish its water supply by consuming beverages and foods that contain water," reports the Mayo Clinic. "So how much fluid does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need? The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is:
- About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day for men
- About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids a day for women.
- These recommendations cover fluids from water, other beverages and food. About 20% of daily fluid intake usually comes from food and the rest from drinks."
Spears frequently posts videos of her dancing at home. It's a great aerobic workout. "Aerobic exercise can reduce health risks, help maintain a healthy weight, strengthen your heart and boost your mood. If you enjoy" dancing "you're also more likely to do it regularly and experience its benefits as an aerobic exercise," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Has a Positive Attitude
"Be happy and smile," Spears posted recently. This kind of happy messaging can actually make you happy. "Positive thinking doesn't mean that you keep your head in the sand and ignore life's less pleasant situations. Positive thinking just means that you approach unpleasantness in a more positive and productive way. You think the best is going to happen, not the worst," says the Mayo Clinic. "Positive thinking often starts with self-talk. Self-talk is the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through your head. These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative. Some of your self-talk comes from logic and reason. Other self-talk may arise from misconceptions that you create because of lack of information."
She Has Done Yoga in the Past
"People who practice yoga and are mindful eaters are more in tune with their bodies. They may be more sensitive to hunger cues and feelings of fullness," says Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood. People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
