The actress may already be in her 50s, but it’s apparent that she still has a slender and fit body. What’s her secret? By keeping herself physically active on a regular basis. Firstly, it is important for her to meditate in order to lessen stress. She said: “I’ve been practicing and relying on Transcendental Meditation for those moments when I feel frantic or anxious. I just stop for 20 minutes to calm myself. I also unwind by hitting tennis balls.”
As for her workouts, she said she mostly relies on tennis in terms of staying fit and healthy overall. She explained: “Tennis has helped me through my midlife crises. It’s linear, and I can measure progress, plus it helps me focus. I love competing, love the challenge – pretty perfect. You have to be brave, and you can feel your personality come out on the court.”
