Jennifer has revealed that she’s ditched trendy diets in favor of eating well and in moderation (always a good move!). She says: “I stopped dieting when I figured out that you just have to eat regularly and properly within moderation. The fads are too much.”
But there are two other things she counts on, too: “I think it’s really about–honestly, this is going to sound silly–going in the sun for 20 minutes a day is really important, Vitamin D, because we are now having a Vitamin D deficiency because of all the SPF. And I think being happy and smiling and laughing a lot.”
Studies have shown that sunshine-provided Vitamin D may help ward off cancer and help build bone and muscle strength–and even raise our serotonin levels, which increase feelings of happiness. And studies have also shown that laughter gives your body a physiological boost–its benefits are similar to those of exercise, decreasing stress levels and blood pressure while boosting the immune system (and burning some calories, too).
Worth a try, no?
