How Great Thou Part

I chat with women who say they have aged due to the stress of divorce, moving, caregiving, and other mid-life challenges. 

This is a reminder to look for inspiration during these difficult and transitional times.

And to seek to take better care of ourselves in order to counter the intensity and stress which can accompany age. Not to mention the sleep deprivation.

The following three celebrities have dedicated themselves to holistic living in all areas of their lives: nutrition, fitness, and mindfulness. A gift to both themselves and their families.

These women are properly motivating when it comes to the importance and sanctity of caring for one’s self.


3 Celebrities Who Defy Age and What We Can Learn from Them:

Elle Macpherson:

Elle Macpherson defies age and beauty at 53 years old. 

She is committed to a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle which you can read about in the articles below.

Macpherson is quoted as saying:

“I feel beautiful when I’m at peace with myself. When I’m serene when I’m a good person when I’ve been considerate of others.”

Cameron Diaz:
At 44 years of age, Cameron Diaz continues to inspire a healthy and active lifestyle. She has written the following books which are worth the read.

Her latest work is entitled, The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time by Cameron Diaz

This is a follow-up to her New York Times bestseller The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body.

In essence, both of these books describe Cameron Diaz’s personal self-discovery of nutrition, exercise, health, and caring for our bodies.

Diaz is quoted as having said:

“What we women need to do, instead of worrying about what we don’t have, is just love what we do have.”

Gwenyth Paltrow:

Gwenyth Paltrow is known for her trademark youthful glow.

At 44 she has continued to extol the virtues of healthy living via her lifestyle website Goop.

Paltrow is also well known for having authored several cookbooks. The most recent and somewhat controversial to a few because it promotes an elimination diet is entitled It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great. Gwenyth continues to dedicate herself to her love of nutrition and health while inspiring others to do the same.

Paltrow is quoted as having said:

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
