Whether you are mowing the lawn, digging in the soil or raking leaves, yard work is an excellent way to add exercise into your weekly routine.
Besides being good for you physically, gardening can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, prevent diabetes, heart disease, depression and osteoporosis when done regularly.
- Gisele Bündchen, 42, recently posted a killer photo on Instagram doing some yoga.
- The Brazilian model also hit her followers with some wellness inspiration in her caption.
- She’s done yoga for many years—but also enjoys Pilates, swimming, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Gisele Bündchen recently shared some wise words of wellness on her Instagram, along with a photo that shows off her yoga practice. The Brazilian model looked serene and super strong in a trikonasana, or triangle pose.
The 42-year-old model was doing her workout on the beach, in grey leggings and a matching tank top. In addition to her inspiring pose (doesn’t it just make you want to bust out your yoga mat?), she also gave her followers some food for thought.
“Being healthy is more than a clean diet and exercise. It’s about our attitudes, emotions, beliefs, thoughts and actions,” she wrote in her caption. “When life gets challenging always remember that the sun rises everyday bringing a new opportunity for us to try again and do better. It can get intense out there and we can get easily distracted by the noise. Awareness is key. What energy you are nurturing?”
She finished the post off with: “Remember, we are the co-creators of our own reality, what we believe we create!” Her followers sent her lots of love for the virtual pep talk in the comments.
In addition to providing a great reminder of one the best workouts, Gisele has been blessing her followers with some killer ab moments lately. She must really be working her core with those navasanas, or boat poses. It isn’t all because of yoga, though. The Brazilian model also likes Pilates, swimming, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, according to British Vogue. She also gets up at 5 a.m. every day to workout. Wow!
As for her diet, Gisele has said she eats a lot of fruits and vegetables, with red meat in moderation, according to Vogue France. Her trainer also told British Vogue that she eats a lot, and trains Gisele and her husband, Tom Brady, together. Totally adorable.
BRB, booking a yoga class. Thanks for the inspo, Gisele!
