She Eats Local

Hurley has said she eats local foods. "You just want to be able to have a connection with your food. To be able to see it, and to be able to inspect it, and make sure it's what you want to put in your body," says Jen Welper, Wellness Chef of the Mayo Clinic. "It's always good to know that the vegetables haven't traveled very far to get to your hands to get to your kitchen."

"I don't really do any set exercise, per se, because I prefer to get my exercise from doing something than being in the gym," Elizabeth said, according to Women's Health. "Defeating the sedentary life isn't as simple as a few tips and tricks, but there are a few things anyone can do to move in the right direction," says the Mayo Clinic. "Here are a few ways to incorporate movement into your day:

  • Use a standing desk when possible.
  • Set a reminder to stand and move at least once per hour.
  • Take a walk over lunch.
  • Walk during phone or conference calls.
  • Park far from store entrances, and enjoy your walk to and from.
  • Skip the elevator and use the stairs."


Here's What She Does for Exercise

"I don't do any regulated exercise, but I'm very active. On the weekends I go for long hikes with my dogs. I try and stretch every day. I do the occasional yoga or Pilates class, but mostly it's just self-exercise at home. I might do some stomach exercises or some bottom or arm exercises, but because I trained for a dancer when I was young, I sort of know all the exercises. I find it very hard for my schedule to regularly go anywhere else. It works very well for me," she told the Cut.


This is What Wellness Means to Her

"It means being as healthy as you can in your lifestyle and as healthy as you can emotionally. You need to balance both. Of course it's important to eat well and exercise. It's also really important to look after yourself emotionally. People often ask me how you can look good as you age, and for me it's a couple of things. You need to look after your skin, that's important," she told the Cut.


She Drinks Two Cups of Water in the Morning

"'It tastes fairly disgusting," she told Daily Mail UK. "But it's fantastic for your digestive system." "So how much fluid does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need?" sasy the Mayo Clinic. "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."


She Soups

"I'll make a vat of delicious vegetable soup," she told Emirates Woman. "I'll have a cup of it whenever I am tempted to raid the fridge." "Beginning a meal with a soup or salad, both high water volume, low-calorie foods, will fill you up and prevent overeating at meals," Laura Burak MS, RD, CDN, told our sister site Eat This, Not That!


She Crusades Against Breast Cancer

Hurley is a longtime global ambassador for The Estée Lauder Companies' Breast Cancer Campaign. "When my grandmother lost her life to breast cancer in the early 90's, nobody spoke openly about this disease," she wrote once. "Times have changed, but people are still dying. Today, our call to help end breast cancer for all is more urgent than ever as breast cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide," Liz continued.
