She Gets Outside
With one look at Whitesell's Instagram, you'll see that she loves to spend time outside. Particularly at the beach with her family and friends. Whitesell has posted several photos of herself by the water, or enjoying the scenery.
She Uses Organic Cosmetics
Whitesell is the founder of the cosmetic company, Macabalm. What makes the line unique is that her products are organic, vegan, and cruelty free. In one Instagram post advertising her products, Whitesell described them as, "Natural ingredients. Minimal ingredients. Essential ingredients."
She Does Pilates
Whitesell is a big fan of practicing Pilates as a way to keep her in shape. She posted this photo on Instagram of herself at the studio, Fluidform Pilates. She captioned the photo, "It's always just joy." "Pilates (pronounced Pi-LAH-teez) is a system of exercises developed by Joseph Pilates that strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health.
In addition, other benefits to practicing Pilates include:
- longer, leaner muscles
- injury prevention
- relief from stress and back pain
- enhanced athletic performance
- heightened mind-body awareness.
One can practice Pilates on a mat or on specially designed equipment. Anyone can take and benefit from Pilates. There are several modifications available to fit most participants' needs," says the Mayo Clinic.
Whitesell is a big fan of going outside, and one of the activities she likes to do is go hiking. She posted this series of photos of herself hiking at a cave trail in Sydney. She captioned the post, "Adventure time." "The faster, farther and more frequently you walk, the greater the benefits. For example, you may start out as an average walker, and then work your way up to walking faster and walking a mile in a shorter amount of time than an average walker, similar to power walkers. This can be a great way to get aerobic activity, improve your heart health and increase your endurance while burning calories," says the Mayo Clinic.
Another outdoor activity Whitesell likes to do is go biking. She has posted photos on Instagram of herself getting out and going for a ride. She posted this photo at a park in Elwood, and this humorous photo of herself riding in Sydney. "A single exercise session that gets your heartrate up can lower blood pressure, improve sleep, lower anxiety and improve insulin sensitivity on the day you do it. Other benefits, like lowering your risk of many chronic diseases and cancers, start adding up within days or weeks of regular physical activity," says the Mayo Clinic.
