She Loves Seafood

Jeleniewska is a big fan of seafood-based dishes, which experts say offer many health benefits. "Shellfish are high-quality protein sources—just like land animals—meaning they have all the essential amino acids," says Faye Dong, professor emerita of food science and human nutrition at the University of Illinois.


Horseback Riding

Jeleniewska enjoys getting out into the fresh air for some therapeutic horseback riding. "We all know riding horses is good exercise," says Dr. Dennis Sigler, a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service horse specialist and professor in the department of animal science at Texas A&M University in College Station. "Riding a horse for 45 minutes at a walk, trot and canter can burn up to 200 calories. If you do something a bit more strenuous such as cutting or reining, that can come out to nearly seven calories per minute for the entire length of the riding period."


She Plans Ahead


Jeleniewska feels better mentally prepared when she is organized and plans ahead. "Sometimes it is hard to balance schoolwork with social media, especially now when we're working online due to the pandemic," she says. "The lack of motivation, will to sleep longer and do anything but sitting and learning are most common problems in everyone's life. I couldn't live without my calendar and organizing literally everything I have to do for the weekend and how much time I should spend on some things."


She Plays Squash

Jeleniewska loves to play squash. "Racket sports provide weather-proof opportunities for fitness and fun," says NHS Inform. "They also work brilliantly for those wanting to get fit with friends, or to compete at local, regional or national level. Aerobic activities bring benefits like reduced risk of chronic illnesses including heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Racket sports can also help you to maintain a healthy body weight and reduce your resting blood pressure."


She Prioritizes Health and Happiness

Jeleniewska is realistic about being an influencer, and says she prioritizes her healthy lifestyle and close connections. "I don't really consider being an influencer as a career," she says. "I do it for fun, I love the contact with my followers and how they make me feel loved and adored in some way. It can really boost your self-esteem if you don't believe in yourself which was my biggest problem. Everyone has their '5 minutes' and social media isn't the only thing I am thinking of to do in the future. You always have to have your Plan B, when something would go wrong. That's why I like studying, deepening my knowledge by reading, leading healthy lifestyle and having a good relations with family and friends. These are my priorities."
