She Works Out With Her Husband
Gabrielle doesn't just vacation with her husband; they work out together, too. "Training together, struggling, failing, trying to get better—it's been a cool thing that doesn't feel like, 'Let's go talk about our feelings,'" she told Women's Health.
She Works Out Because She Wants to Live!
"I have a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, and I know that can lead to an early death. I want to be a vital and energetic part of my family for a long time, not to be big mama in a rocking chair in the TV room, or huffing and puffing just going up stairs. I work out not because I get off on it, but because I want to live!" she told Women's Health.
She Does Pilates
"I'm not a morning person, but I have to work out early because of my schedule. The great thing about Pilates is that I can take out my annoyance from waking up early on the machines instead of human beings. It's for the greater good. My body responds to it, and I'm also more clear," she said.
Give Yourself a Break to Sleep
"When you're just trapped in the house, for us, it's been key to have a routine," she told Popsugar, "and we didn't have one because we would all be, like, a slave to our phones and our laptops and iPads. So just giving yourself a break to sleep. It shouldn't sound like a radical act, but it is, and it's been a massive game changer for us."
"Meditation gives me the confidence and strength to put myself first," Union-Wade said, according to Forbes. "Sometimes you forget that it takes strength to center yourself, that's not being selfish that's being strong. Because you cannot be strong for everyone else and be of service to everyone else when you have literally left nothing for yourself. So, be strong for yourself, advocate for yourself to center yourself. Because without that, it's hard to be superwoman."
