"Pretty girls," commented her pal, Hilary Duff. "This is SO SWEET," added Melanie Lynskey. How does the actress and mother of two approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
You won't catch JoAnna eating dinner on the go. "[Dinnertime] is definitely our time," she told Romper. "I do find that I hear a lot about the day in that little zone. Any chance that I can get to get details of my kids' day, I'll take it," she added. "I like all of my little chicks back in the nest by dinnertime so we can sit down and, even if it's 20 minutes, have a little time to connect."
JoAnna makes sure to get her beauty sleep. "Oh gosh, when nighttime comes, I usually am so ready to fall asleep. It's nuts. I am definitely the kind of person where once the light goes out, it's like 'night night!; So once I get through all of my little nightly rituals and all of that stuff, I will usually watch some TV with Nick and just hang out and chat for a little bit," she said about her wind-down routine.
JoAnna has a favorite mental health habit. "I try to sneak in my relaxation time during the day, which is something I've been really trying to do this past year because I found I'm an avid reader. I love to read more than anything. It releases so much stress for me. But I wasn't getting much reading done at night because I was so tired. So even just carving out 30 minutes, it makes such a world of a difference," she told Romper.
JoAnna mixes fitness with family time. "Family bike rides are big for us right now," she told E! The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis.
JoAnna also slips in short workouts. "I always try to carve out thirty minutes for pilates with Andrea Rodgers and foam rolling with Lauren Roxburgh," she told E! Why is pilates a good workout? 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.
Another one of Garcia's go-to workouts? She told Happily Eva After that "taking part in some sort of yoga or meditation" is how she makes sure to "recharge" her batteries. Why should you do yoga? "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," Harvard Health explans. "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."
