Miranda Kerr shares her secrets to her lean, toned, post-baby physique and talks women and body confidence.
Miranda Kerr swears by yoga and a “super healthy” diet to keep herself healthy and wealthy.
The 29-year-old model – who has 15-month-old son Flynn with husband Orlando Bloom – does 30 minutes of yoga every day as part of her workout, and refuses to let naughty foods pass her lips.
She said, “I make sure I do half an hour of yoga in the morning so that then I’m feeling good. I have been working out quite a bit doing Pilates and yoga and strength training with weights and resistant bands and I eat super healthy. Health is really wealth I think.”
Like her ‘Lord of the Rings’ actor husband, Miranda turns to meditation to help her mind relax and escape the day-to-day stresses of a hectic lifestyle. She told the Daily Mail newspaper, “If I’m in the car on the way to work or if I’m on the plane on the way to a job I’ll do a meditation.”
The Victoria’s Secret star recently revealed one of her key philosophies is to focus on the positive, and she believes all women should try to feel good about themselves. She said, “I can’t feel bad about being who I am, just like the girl next to me can’t feel bad about being who she is. Because a rose can never be a sunflower, and a sunflower can never be a rose.”
“I want to encourage women to embrace their own uniqueness. Because just like a rose is beautiful, so is a sunflower, so is a peony. I mean, all flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that’s like women too.”
Miranda Kerr doesn’t see herself as a sex symbol. The Australian beauty – who is often voted one of the world’s sexiest woman – says she’s happy showing off her gorgeous body during the Victoria’s Secret shows but doesn’t regard herself in the same way others do.
She told vogue.co.uk: “It’s not really something I’m aware of and it’s definitely not how I see myself. I think it is something that definitely comes from working with Victoria’s Secret because that’s all about sexiness and all of the girls are so beautiful. I’m comfortable with it, but I don’t look at myself in that way!”
Miranda says she’s happy with how she looks and always focuses on the positives rather than the negatives. She said, “I never focus on the negative. Everyone has things that they don’t love about themselves, but I think that, as women, it’s much healthier and more positive to focus on your good parts and the things you like about yourself – not pick yourself apart or be too hard on yourself. Everyone has a different beauty and different qualities and I think that women need to learn to love their qualities and be comfortable in the fact that everyone is different.”
