She Finds the Water Healing
"My biggest wellness passion is being in water, the ocean, a lake, river, or pool," she once told Charlotte's Book. "I'll even lie down on a stream if that's what's around. Or jump into a harbor." One time she wrote: "There's a stillness that compares to no other, the sound of a shoreline, when there are no waves, no wind, no one. Just tiny ripples of water silently approaching the sand."
This is What She Eats for Breakfast
"My favorite breakfast is porridge cooked with milk and topped off with banana, brown sugar and a big lump of melting butter in the middle," she told Net-a-Porter. "Oats contain a type of soluble fiber, called beta glucan, which lowers blood glucose and cholesterol levels, thus reducing risk of heart disease and diabetes. Beta glucan also promotes healthy gut bacteria and intestinal health," says the Mayo Clinic.
This is How She Likes to Work Out
"I do boxing and conditioning three times a week…and yoga twice a week. They keep my body strong, firm and toned. I started enjoying working out when I began to understand the anatomical aspect of it and learned how to recruit muscle groups," she told Net-a-Porter.
Yoga Does a Body Good
"It's the American way — better, harder, faster competition and that's totally the opposite of what yoga is. Yoga is about being in the moment. Not competing, not judging but listening to our body. It's about developing the practice of doing the best you can each day without hurting yourself. Some days are balanced. Some days, we're not as flexible. And with that overriding acceptance, we learn from ourselves," says yoga therapist and yoga program manager, Judi Bar to Cleveland Clinic.
This is Her Best Relationship Advice
"It's more what I have learned myself throughout the years, that there needs to be a level of respect towards the other person that is reciprocated. A relationship should be about compromising and not sacrificing, you should feel like you're still growing and evolving," she told the Zoe Report.
