Hailey Bieber, has become one of the hottest models on the planet since she married pop star Justin Bieber. She has a very simple secret about how she maintains her energy level to match her hectic life.
Hailey says exercise, and doing it “consistently,” keep her energy levels up.
There are other benefits as well, she says.
Hailey Bieber learned from years of ballet dancing lessons that exercise and fitness helps her feel more confident.
“The biggest thing that makes a difference in my looks – and my energy level – is exercising consistently,” she told Marie Claire magazine in a recent interview.
“I used to be a ballet dancer, so working out is important to me. I box, and I’m obsessed with hot Pilates, which I started maybe two years ago. I don’t break a sweat very easily, so when I do, I feel like I’m really getting things done,” she says.
Growing up in a Hollywood family, Hailey has often battled insecurity. She’s the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, one of the famous Baldwin brothers.
“I’ve struggled with comparison. I come from a world of modeling where it’s really easy to compare myself to my own friends,” she says.
“You’re just surrounded by a lot of beauty. I would say that every girl struggles with comparing themselves, whether it’s on social media or [something else]. There’s always going to be other women or other girls that you feel insecure around, or that you compare yourself to.
“What if she’s this and I’m not this? or What if I’m this and she’s this? That is always happening no matter what, you know?” she says.
Hailey Bieber also advises fans to take occasional breaks from social media, like Twitter and Instagram. She believes it can be “bad for her health.”
“It just does something to your soul, I think, if you pay too close attention to it. Taking breaks from social media, I think, is really important. I have times where I’ll just take the app off my phone for like a week or a couple of days … I think it’s bad for your health – the constant need to be picking your phone up and refreshing your feed just to see what it is that’s going on or what you’re missing.”
The effects of exercise have been widely studied. The Mayo Clinic details seven ways it can lead to better health.
1. Exercise controls weight
Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. Any amount of activity is better than none at all. Take the stairs instead of the elevator or rev up household chores. Consistency is key.
2. Exercise combats health conditions and diseases
Being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good,” cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety, many types of cancer, arthritis and falls.
3. Exercise improves mood
Need an emotional lift? Or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A gym session or brisk walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier, more relaxed and less anxious. You may also feel better about your appearance, which can boos confidence and self-esteem.
4. Exercise boosts energy
Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. You have more energy to tackle daily chores.
5. Exercise promotes better sleep
Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and get better, deeper sleep. Just don’t exercise too close to bedtime.
6. Exercise puts the spark back into your sex life
Regular physical activity can improve energy levels and physical appearance, which may boost your sex life. But there’s even more to it than that. Regular physical activity may enhance arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don’t exercise.
7. Exercise can be fun … and social!
Exercise and physical activity can be enjoyable. It gives you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting.
