It can be all too easy to develop unhealthy lifestyle habits, and while this may not seem like too big of a deal in the short run, they can have severely detrimental effects on your overall well-being in the long term. From Courtney Cox to Madonna, these are some lifestyle tips from some of those ageless stars out there.

 

Physical Exercise

When it comes to the stars out there who never seem to age, regular physical exercise is usually always their main secret. While many choose to spend hours at the gym, there are several others that enjoy a more diverse range of physical activity, such as Sheryl Crow and her love for sports, from paddle surfing to tennis. Courtney Cox recommends physical activities such as yoga, martial arts and bike riding, while Liv Tyler encourages others to find a way to make exercise fun, which is what she did when the hula-hooping craze recently came around.

 

Mental Stimulation

As important as regular physical exercise may be when it comes to your health, mental stimulation is just as vital, as your brain needs to be constantly challenged in order to truly thrive. There are many different activities out there that will help to give your brain a workout, whether this may be reading, which is what celebrities such as Will Smith and Emma Watson turn to, or chess, which is one of Madonna's favorite games.

 

Healthy Diet

It goes without saying that a healthy diet is essential for a healthy lifestyle, and this is something that almost all of the ageless stars out there have recognized. A whole foods, low sugar diet is popular amongst many of those who seem to be ageless, while others, such as Sharon Stone, take it a step further by avoiding caffeine and excess alcohol. There are also many celebrities out there that have adopted a plant-based diet, from Natalie Portman to Alicia Silverstone, and they have all reported significant health benefits from doing so, with the latter proclaiming that a vegan diet helped do away with her acne, puffy eyes, insomnia and asthma.

 

Meditation

There is no denying that meditation has become so much more mainstream in recent years, and this is hardly surprising when you take into account the number of scientific studies now available that prove the many health benefits that meditation can have. Some of the most ageless celebrities out there, from Jennifer Aniston to Hugh Jackman to Katy Perry, regularly practice meditation, keeping their mind, body and soul in top shape.

 

When it comes to adopting a healthier lifestyle, the key is to make small and subtle changes, building up on these until you have reached your goal. Put together some short milestones that you know that you will be able to achieve, so that you are setting yourself up for success in the long run.
