Self Confidence Is Key

During an interview for the December 2021 issue of InStyle, Reese emphasized the importance of self-confidence. "I've said this to Oprah before, but LeBron James doesn't go, 'I'm kinda sorta good at basketball.' He's like, 'I'm the best there ever was.' So, yes, I do think I'm very good at what I do. I've been doing it for 30 years. I know what I'm doing. Give me the ball."


She Embraces Her Body


Reese maintains that the secret to looking good is self-love. "In my 30s, I learned to accept my body for what it is. This is what looks good on it. It will never look good in that thing over there with all the fabric and the bows and the ruffles. It just won't," she explained.


She Drinks Water in the AM


During a recent Instagram Reel, Reese revealed a few of her go-to health habits. One of them? Starting the day hydrated. "Start the day with a big glass of water," she wrote. 


She Gets Vitamin D

Reese is all about getting in her Vitamin D. "Get 10 mins of outdoor light," she stated in the Instagram Reel, mentioning that Andrew Huberman, PhD, "recommends morning light." Unlike many other vitamins, D is not regularly found in food. The National Institutes of Health reveals that it is "produced endogenously when ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis."


She Prioritizes Sleep

Reese makes sure to get plenty of sleep. "In bed by 10pm. *no late night TV binges," she says in her Instagram Reel. "Try to get  8 hours of rest!" The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal that a third of US adults report that they get less than the recommended amount of sleep—seven hours for adults per the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. "Not getting enough sleep is linked with many chronic diseases and conditions—such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and depression," the CDC explains. 


She Doesn't Crash Diet


Reese eats healthy, but you won't find her on any fad diets. "I don't believe in crash dieting or anything like that," Reese told Us Weekly


She Trains Six Days a Week

Reese told Us Weekly that exercise is a big part of her life. "I work out all the time anyway just to stay healthy," she said. According to her trainer, Michael George, she does cardio for 30 minutes six times per week, he told Shape. Reese also revealed to Radio Times that she wakes up at 5:30 a.m. so she can work out by 7:30 a.m. "I probably do that six days a week," she said.


She Gets in Lots of Greens

"I just have a green juice and a coffee in the morning," Reese told Radio Times. One of her favorite drinks is nutritionist Kim Snyder's Glowing Green Smoothie, which consists of spinach, romaine lettuce, celery, apple, pear, banana, and lemon juice. "I start every day with a Glowing Green Smoothie and so does my whole family!" she wrote in a testimonial on Snyder's website.
