Olivia Rodrigo Shares New Swimsuit Photo as "Icon"
Olivia Rodrigo is spending a day at the beach in her bathing suit. In a new social media post the Vampire singer flaunts her amazing figure in a white bathing suit while lounging in the sand. "Icon," commented one of her millions of followers. "All eyes on olive," commented her friend, singer Conan Gray. "ur world and we r just living in it," added another follower. How does the chart-topping singer keep herself fit and healthy? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Olivia told Teen Vogue: "I am a terrible runner but it's the thought that counts," she said. The Mayo Clinic endorses running as a great workout for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say.
Olivia is also a fan of books. "I try to read every night before I go to bed," the singer told Teen Vogue. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals.
Olivia works out with Kirsty Godso, a New Zealand-born personal trainer who also works out with Kaia Gerber and Maddie Ziegler. She does a lot of ab work during her workouts, telling Teen Vogue that working on her midsection helps destress her, saying that she had done "an ab workout to help release some energy."
Olivia told CBS Sunday Morning for Mental Illness Awareness Week that therapy has been "life-changing" for her. "I hadn't really started going till I was like, 16," she said. "That was a really big, life-changing moment. I've learned so much about myself." She continued: "Sometimes people are like, 'Oh, you don't need that. You have so much. Your life is so great. What are your problems?'" Olivia said. "I think that's definitely a thing that sometimes older people can do to younger people, too — kind of trivialize what they're going through just because, you know, 'Ah, they're fine, they're just kids. They'll get through it.' But it feels so real when you're in it. It's so valid."
Another self-care health habit of Olivia's? "I love a bubble bath," she confessed during Vogue's 73 Questions. How can baths do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
Olivia also blasts calories by dancing. "I did a lot of ballet when I was younger, but that didn't pan out," she told Vogue. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.
Olivia's BFF Madison Hu revealed in an interview that the two sweat through Pilates classes together. According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.
Olivia went for a hike during a recent trip to Hawaii. "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.
