Olivia loves kayaking. "All good things are wild and free," she captioned a photo of herself rowing in Alaska. Kayaking is a great workout. Not only is it great for building upper body strength and helps reduce stress, but can burn up to 400 calories per hour, translating to 1,600 calories in four hours of paddling.
Olivia, who was born in Alaska, spends a lot of time hiking. "I'm on top of the world. There's truly no place like home. It's moments like these that make life so worth living❤️ family, friends and nature 🍃 Nothing like hiking in 45 degrees with 10 degree windchill ," she captioned a photo of herself on a nature hike. "Hiking is one of the best ways to get exercise. No matter what type of trail you find yourself on, hiking is a great whole-body workout—from head to toe and everything in between," says the National Parks Service. Some of the physical benefits include building stronger muscles and bones, improving your sense of balance, improving your heart health, and decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems. It also offers many mental health benefits, according to a Stanford University study.
She Takes Social Media Breaks
Olivia prioritizes her mental health. "Taking a break now and then from social media is one the healthiest choices I can make for myself. I was finding that instead of doing what I know makes me my happiest, I was aimlessly checking social media taking in not only gossip, but unrealistic and untrue expectations of life. Life is so amazing and these past couple weeks have been a much needed recharge for my soul," she wrote in an Instagram post.
Olivia also loves swimming in the ocean, pools, and lakes. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well.
She Goes for Walks
Olivia loves taking walks in nature. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
