Skier Lindsey Vonn Shares Swimsuit Photo From Lake Cuomo
Lindsey Vonn is expressing gratitude in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the celebrated athlete shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit while on Lake Como, sharing an inspiring message with her followers. "Moments of reflection… Hard work always pays off but I also have to pinch myself sometimes. Thankful to have the opportunities I have, no matter how much sacrifice it took to get me here, and I do not take one second for granted," she captioned the post. How does the skier practice self-care? Celebwell rounded up her top habits.
She Spends Time with Her Dogs
Lindsey starts her day by taking her dogs out. "There are not many mornings where [my dog] Lucy doesn't abruptly wake me up before my alarm to remind me that she has to go to the bathroom. My other two dogs could probably sleep until mid-morning without having to go, but Lucy's a bit of a high-maintenance diva. That's definitely the first thing I do when I wake up," she told The Zoe Report.
Lindsey's "ideal day off is just being at home, on the couch, putting my phone away, snuggling with my dogs, and watching my favorite show," she added. "I just don't get that many opportunities to just unplug and not see humans. As much as I love people, I also love to not be around them. Just being around my dogs and not talking. That, to me, is the most resting and relaxing thing I can do."
She Free Dives
One of Lindsey's self-care activities? "I love free diving — it's very meditative as well. It's one of those things where you have to be so focused. Kind of like skiing, where you're focused on one thing, but it's physically very demanding as well. There's a lot of precision that's involved. I don't know. I love it. Being in the water is very quiet," she explained.
She Gets Enough Sleep
What is her secret weapon for looking and feeling good? "I mean, honestly, the most important thing for me has been sleep. I have the worst bags under my eyes and I'm not good with beauty routines in the way that most of my friends are. The more I sleep, the better I look. I don't have as many wrinkles under my eyes when I sleep better," she says.
She Lights Candles at Night
According to Lindsey, the right bedtime scent is vital. "I have this particular candle that I really like—the Voluspa Gardenia Colonia Classic Candle—and it also comes in a mist. I usually travel with that and it reminds me of home. Wherever I am, I like my bedroom to smell the same way. It's a comforting thing," she told Self.
She Practices Spanish
Some people read, others watch tv. But Lindsey has a unique wind-down activity. "Right before I fall asleep, I practice my Spanish," she told Self. "I live mainly in Florida now, and I think it's important to learn Spanish living there. I use Duolingo for a little bit, just to get it in every day, and then I read a Spanish grammar book. This puts me to sleep quickly, usually around 10:30 or 11 p.m."
