How does the 41-year-old approach diet and fitness? Celebwell rounded up her top health habits.
In her recent social media post, Danica revealed that self-care is crucial. "For me that's… nature, walking, slow mornings, massage, music, sunrises/sunsets, laughing…. And all of that leads to me feeling really grateful, which is a powerful emotion," she said.
Danica has been spending a lot of time on the golf course. "I found the trick to golfing. Barefoot and bikinis," she captioned a post. "Got a few days of much needed time off for my brain." In her post from Hawaii she added that she played golf "with the CEO." A comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that golf's health benefits are extensive, including mind, body, and even lifespan. Benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.
"The only reliable way to change your reality is to change your perception. Happiness is not outside of you, it's the way you see things," Danica captioned a recent post of herself doing yoga. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
