Minka Kelly says, Exercise is like meditation for me.
It’s completely changed my body, my life, everything. I cannot live without it now. When you have such a good workout, it clears everything up mentally, physically, and you just have a better day. “I watch Beyonce videos while I’m working out. The dancers’ bodies are so inspiring!”
If you don’t let yourself have things you want, especially when it comes to something as simple as food, you’ll fail and end up being less healthful. I try to be sensible and have egg whites and oatmeal for breakfast, a salad with protein for lunch, and fish and veggies at night. But once in a while, I have that cheeseburger and fries!
I know when I’m cooking for someone I love, I put my heart into it, and there’s passion that goes into it, and then you’re watching them take each bite. But what you can’t do is ruin it by saying, Oh, it was supposed to be like this, it’s not perfect — you ruin it.
Getting enough sleep and drinking lots of water are the most underrated, simple, and beneficial things you can do for your health. I also have to sleep a full eight hours. And I like to take my half-hour power naps in the middle of the day.
I did Bikram yoga for a while, and I know that’s not for me. Too hot!
