Carrie is a big proponent of meditation. "Self care is so much more than a beauty regimen or an external thing you do," she told the Los Angeles Times. "It has to start within your heart to know what you need to navigate your life. A pedicure doesn't last, but meditating every day does."
She Believes Beauty Comes From Within
Beauty comes from the inside, Carrie told Yahoo in 2015. "I know that when I feel really good about myself and my life, I radiate beauty. When we see someone who is really truly beautiful, it's not because they have perfect features or they don't have wrinkles — it's because their soul is coming through. What I'm striving for is really being authentic," she said.
She Doesn't Strive for Skinny
Carrie has no desire to be skinny. "For a long time I felt like everyone was so skinny, and working out like a crazy woman. Believe me, I love working out and being in good shape, and I have a whole plan to do more. It's not like I've lost that. But being skinny is not beautiful to me. I was kind of in that hamster wheel of thinking, sure, it's easier to get dressed because things fit you. But it's not the be-all and end-all," she told Yahoo.
She Encourages Eating High-Fat Foods
Carrie is a big fan of high-fat foods. "Real beauty comes from eating high-fat foods," she told Yahoo. "I think women, especially have to eat fat. They have to eat avocados and olive oil and things that have fat in them."
Her Children Motivate Her to Be Healthy
Carrie is inspired to be healthy by her kids. "Everything we do models for our children, good and bad," she told the Los Angeles Times. "They see me on the treadmill, and when I did Pilates to get in shape for a job, I'd bring my kids when they were babies and was holding onto them while working out.
She Works Out to Feel Good
"Feeling strong is important, and to feel in your body is a vital part of being a woman, regardless of whether you're a mother or not," the devoted yogi told the Los Angeles Times. "I'll occasionally go to an exercise class," she added. Nature walks are also part of her routine. "I no longer work out with the goal of attaining a particular type of body. It's more about breathing and sweating and having that experience and endorphins to boost mood."
