Reese Witherspoon Just Revealed Her Top 5 Healthy "Habits"

She does these five things every day.

"I've been thinking a lot about habits lately," Reese Witherspoon says at the start of her latest Instagram Reel, explaining that a friend recently gave her the book Atomic Habits, by James Clear. "It's really about how the habits that you do every single day really can change your life. So if you're doing something that's one percent better for you every single day, you're going to get one percent better every day. If you are doing something that's one percent worse for you, you are going to get worse every day," she continued. "I just wanted to share what my daily habits are that I'm working on and ones that I've been doing for a long time."

She Walks Her Dog

Reese's co-star in the Instagram Reel happens to be her dog Major, who is patiently waiting for his walk. "Do we walk every day? Yep," Reese quips at the start of the video. At the end the two finally head on their way. "You ready to walk? Let's go," she says.  


Drink Water in the AM


Almost every star drinks a glass of water first thing in the AM and many of them add lemon. Reese maintains that it is one of her go-to health habits. "Start the day with a big glass of water," she writes.


Get Your Vitamin D

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


She Reads

Reese has her own book club so it isn't very surprising that she prioritizes reading time. "Spend 30 – 60 mins reading without distraction everyday," she suggests. 


Get Enough Sleep

Reese prioritizes getting enough sleep. "In bed by 10pm. *no late night TV binges," she says about her final top health habit. "Try to get  8 hours of rest!" According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a third of US adults report that they get less than the recommended amount of sleep, which is defined as 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," adds the CDC.
