She Takes Collagen Supplements

González takes collagen supplements as part of her health and wellness routine. "Collagen peptides are a supplement that can help your body replace its lost collagen," says Beth Czerwony, RD. "They help firm the skin and plump it up to keep you looking a little bit younger. Collagen peptides can help protect your ligaments and tendons. So they're worth a try for anybody who has arthritic pain or who works out a lot."

González loves to take baths, often with candles and a good book. "Taking baths has great physical and mental health benefits," says family medicine provider Amy Zack, MD. "One benefit is cleanliness. Bathing cleans your skin, helping you avoid irritation, inflammation and sores caused by dead skin cell accumulation. The bacterial and fungal load from contact in your environment can also accumulate, increasing the risk of infection."

González enjoys eggs, especially with fries. "Eggs are one of the best dietary sources of choline," says registered nutritionist Jo Lewin. 'This little talked about nutrient is needed by everyone of us for the formation of cell membranes and for brain function, including memory. It's especially important during pregnancy and breastfeeding, when an adequate supply of choline is essential for normal brain development."

She Enjoys Paddle Boarding

González is a big fan of the ocean, and loves to paddle board. "Our modern day lives have become largely disconnected from nature, with concrete and vehicles physically separating us from the outdoors, and what we value being far removed from what our brains developed to value," says paddle boarder and Dryrobe brand ambassador, Cal Major. "Stand-up paddle boarding can help counteract that. Gliding along the water, making little noise and traveling slowly allows for a peaceful immersion into the natural world around us."

She Loves To Dance

González loves to dance and is clearly very good at it. Dance-based workouts are fun and don't require expensive equipment. "Any type of exercise is beneficial for you," says exercise physiologist Christopher Travers, MS. "If a new fitness trend fits into your time frame and you like it, we're going to encourage it. But always start slow and listen to your body. If your body says to slow down, then slow down."
