She Believes In Balance

For Shields, wellness means balance. She tells Healthy Living, "Balancing seems to be the biggest tip. It's so boring but yet it's true. It gets real simple; there's no pill." Find your own balance. "Too much stress can have a negative impact on your health. You can develop high blood pressure, which itself can lead to heart conditions, or muscle aches and pains. You also might be more prone to getting sick, as stress can have a negative impact on your immune system," says the Cleveland Clinic.


She Doesn't Compare Herself

Shields tells Healthy Living that she no longer compares herself to others, and just focuses on herself. "I think the biggest tip is that the sooner you stop comparing yourself to other people, the more attention you get to put on yourself and celebrate what you do have rather than what you don't have. It's only been in the last few years…I've figured that one out."


She Uses An Indo Board

Shields tells Health that she likes to use different pieces of workout equipment. One thing she loves to use is an Indo Board. "I've just started hanging upside down in inversion boots, doing hamstring pulls and sit-ups. I'm amazed at how great it feels on my back. I'll just hang there and then start doing a whole series of crunches and things like that. It's really hard, but it's really great, and I notice a difference."


She Works Out At Home

Shields tells InStyle that she does a lot of at home workouts. She says that she likes to get creative with her workouts. "I have a trainer who says if you're stuck at home, you have to get creative. You can do biceps with cans of tomatoes. I have these elastic bands, and if you spend 10 minutes doing squats or side steps with those, you're sweating!"


She Does Instagram Live Workouts

During the pandemic, Shields has started to do workouts over Zoom and Instagram. She tells InStyle that it helps her workout on a regular basis. "I've never been called a fitness enthusiast, but being in it with people has been the piece of social media that I've really appreciated. It's helped me feel a healthy responsibility to keep it up. I recommend planning on a time of day to exercise. It can bring a sense of control."
