Southern Charm's Venita Aspen Shares Swimsuit Photo of "Relaxation"
Venita Aspen is getting a little rest and relaxation – in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the Southern Charm beauty shows off her amazing body in a floral one-piece bathing suit, standing around the pool. "No Sunday scaries over here 🥂👙🏝☀️ What's something you're excited about this week? I'm spending the week in NYC + The Hamptons, ready for a little relaxation," she captioned the Instagram video. How does the reality star approach health and fitness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
When asked about her best beauty habits, Venita didn't skip a beat. She maintains it is "drinking lots of water," she told Charleston Magazine. "Trust me; it works!" According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
She Does Yoga
Venita is also a yogi. "I take yoga at Still Soul Studio," she told Charleston Magazine. 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."
She Drinks Juice
As for her diet, juicing is one of her favorite things. "Food-wise, drinking at least two Eternal Juices a day keeps me balanced," she told the publication. "Just because you don't have a juicer doesn't mean you still can't make fresh juice at home! I made a very simple Watermelon + Lime Juice with a few easy steps," she added in a social media post, sharing her recipe.
She Does HIIT Workouts
Venita trains at Exemplar Fitness, and goes to HIIT classes at Fit Culture, she told Charleston Magazine. There is lots of research backing up the benefits of HIIT workouts, including body fat reduction, improved cardiovascular function, and mental health. It is also time effective.
She Drinks Coffee
Venita is a coffee drinker. "Photo description: Venita sipping coffee from a teal mug, wearing a white short-sleeve tie front top and orange sunglasses," she captioned a post. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.
