How Does Martha Stay Fit?
As mentioned earlier, Stewart follows a well-balanced diet plan. Along with that, she also exercises and meditates on a regular basis. These all positive habits combined have made her health stable and she flourishes.
In fact, she has built some rules in order to observe discipline in her life. Those rules are not only the secret behind her healthy life, but these are also the cause why she is so successful in her business ventures. Success requires consistency, consistency requires discipline, and Martha has plenty of that. Following are Martha’s rules to live a happy life.
1. Wake Up Early in the Morning
Most of what you are going to achieve in a given day becomes decided according to the time you wake up. The saying “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise” is not for nothing. Stewart is a good explanation of this idiom. She is a healthy, wealthy, and wise woman.
As she wakes up early in the morning, Stewart has a lot of energy throughout the day, which helps her go through her busy schedule. Not only does she wakes up early in the morning but she also goes for a long walk. “It is a very healthy routine,” Stewart said, “It has changed my life since the day I started following it.”
2. Have Something Energetic at Breakfast
A glass of green juice a day keeps the trouble away. This is something that Martha is not planning to eliminate from her daily life. “I drink green juice every single morning,” Stewart told Dr. Oz. Green juice is a beverage made from the juices of green vegetables such as spinach, cucumber, celery, parsley, and mint. There is no well-explained recipe for green juice so you can make it the way you like.
3. Take Good Care of Your Face
Stewart takes very good care of her face. In order to stay ageless, she uses a hydrating mask on her face, hands, and décolletage. She applies the mask every day after waking up. The hydrating mask saves your face from pollution by retaining the moisture.
So far this strategy has been quite useful for Martha and she recommends it to other women as well. However, before applying the mask, make sure that you are not allergic to the mask.
4. Grow What You Eat
Now, this rule might sound a little bit strange but this is true. Martha does grow the vegetables she eats. Martha has her own garden where she grows her own vegetables. Talking about her garden, Stewart said, “I grow vegetables in my garden that I drink green juice of.”
She further said, “I grow in the greenhouse in the winter and the garden in the summer. And they’re organic vegetables.” Now, growing our own vegetables in our garden might be impractical for some of us but we can still investigate the sources of our food and buy healthy ones.
5. Take Your Protein from Sea
For her protein consumption, Stewart doesn’t eat meat. Instead, she gets most of her protein from seafood. This might not be the choice of most people but it has worked very well for Martha. “I eat well. I don’t eat a lot of meat but more of a fish-based diet plan,” Martha said.
6. Do Exercise and Meditate Regularly
There is no healthy life without exercising. Realizing this, Martha built a very healthy exercise plan. Along with going for long walks in the morning, she also practices yoga on a regular basis to stay fit. And to stay at peace, she meditates for half an hour in the morning and for half an hour in the evening.
7. Martha Eats Non-traditionally
You don’t pay much attention to the ingredients of flour while buying, do you? Well, Martha does. Just like everything she is very careful in this aspect as well. “I think that we’ve become very reliant on the soft, white flours, which are not necessarily the most nutritional, the healthiest, the best for you,” Stewart said.
“So we’ve done a lot of experimentation. You can search for the best ingredients, and there are so many small mills that are really grinding up some really great flours these days,” she added.
Stewart stands tall at 1.77 m and has a slim figure of 130 pounds (59 kgs).
Another, American businesswoman, author, and tv personality, Rachael Ray, has lost 40 pounds.
Of all the factors of living a successful and happy life, health is the most important one. By living a healthy life, Martha has set a very good example for other women who are struggling with obesity and other health-related problems. Her story is enough to light the flame of inspiration in anybody’s life.
