On Being Healthy
Gisele has maintained a healthy lifestyle. The activist detailed how yoga, breathing exercises, and a healthy diet helped her to overcome panic attacks and suicidal thoughts in her memoir, “Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.”
Gisele noted, “It’s easy to say in hindsight, but if you don’t take care of your body when you’re young, I guarantee that you’ll pay the price someday.
She added, “if not in your early twenties, as I did, then in your forties or fifties.”
Apart from eating healthy, Gisele also believes in self-care.
“Self-care is so important, and a lot of people feel they don’t have time to make themselves a priority,” she told Allure. “I believe that outer beauty is a reflection of your inner balance and peace.”
