Reese prioritizes daily walks for some exercise. It’s inexpensive, it gives her fresh air and it helps with her physical and mental health. According to thechalkboardmag.com, she even started a running club, admittedly more of a walking club, to stay focused. “Physical activity, like walking, is important for weight control because it helps you burn calories. If you add 30 minutes of brisk walking to your daily routine, you could burn about 150 more calories per day. Of course, the more you walk and the faster your pace, the more calories you will burn,” explains the Mayo Clinic.
Taking things a step further, Reese often heads out into the woods to go on more strenuous hike when she wants to challenge herself. Different terrains can benefit various muscles in your body. It’s something you can do alone to clear your mind or with friends to catch up and socialize.
Witherspoon does a series of floor stretches with her foam roller to make sure her muscles are kept in top shape. There is a lot of benefits of foam rolling, essentially giving you a deep tissue massage, working the muscles. Try a foam roller on your upper back, says the Mayo Clinic:
“1. Lie on your back and place a foam roller under the middle of your back. 2. Lift your hips off the floor and place your hands behind your ears to open your chest. 3. Slowly push through your heels to move backward and 4. Keep your spine and head aligned in a neutral position 5. When you find a tender spot, stop and hold the position for at least 30 seconds until you can feel the muscle relaxes.”
Like any normal person, Reese can sometimes use support. She even started a workout challenge on the treadmill to avoid running outside in the cold where she did a series of intervals. Typically focusing on a book club with her fans, in December she encouraged them to set monthly activity goals with her.
Reese seems to have a very good support system of friends and family and she loves hosting pool parties and get-togethers. At these parties, she will sometimes relax a little with some of her favorite southern dishes. This could include fried chicken, fried okra, squash casserole, etc. She does not deprive herself, but likes to include vegetables. All in moderation, if she indulges in it one day she also loves green smoothies and vegetarian ready meals. It’s a matter of balance.
