Jessica Alba has starred in both movies and television shows and runs her own company, called the Honest Company. We can assume she has some life experience to share for those reasons. Fortunately, unlike a good portion of Hollywood, she has her head screwed on right and has loads of life tips that we can thank her for. Here are some of the best ones I could round up. You are going to see Jessica in a whole new light after you read these.
1. Try Farm to Table
This means that the foods you eat are sourced near your home. For example, you choose veggies that were grown outside of town, but close enough that you could drive to pick them yourself if you wanted. Jessica raves about a farm to table restaurant called Commissary. If you want to try the trend, look for restaurants in your area that source their food nearby, or simply shop at area farmers’ markets and cook your own local food.
2. Take a Krav Maga Class
This martial art combines elements of judo, Muay Thai and aikido to create a workout that can’t be beat. Jessica loves it because it makes her feel like an action hero. However, the moves involved also tone the entire body, blast calories and get your heart pumping. Make like Jessica and try out a class. You’ll love it.
3. Find Your Dream Products
For Jessica, it’s Resurface Retinol Reform, but for you, it might be something entirely different. Follow her lead and experiment with different skincare and beauty products to find those that make the most sense to you. You’ll know you found the right one when your skin looks and feels its best.
4. Go Natural
Jessica’s Honest Company aims to bring quality and natural products to families all over the world. Her idea that we should avoid unnecessary chemicals and choose items that allow us to live a full and healthy life is something we can all emulate. It doesn’t have to be expensive either. Try out some of her products and you’ll get the reason why natural is sometimes better.
5. Reduce Stress
Jessica is the first to acknowledge that this is easier said than done. However, taking the time to reduce your stress has many benefits. It can help you live more fully, help you relax, clear up your skin and reduce the risk of several health problems. Jessica suggests a schedule that allows you built in time to de-stress doing your favorite things.
6. Simplify Your Style
According to Jessica, it’s easy to declutter your style by choosing only the products and clothing that work for you. Getting rid of all the extras gives you more room to put together a beauty routine and the outfits to go with it. Clear out everything you don’t need or don’t use and you’ll have a whole new perspective on things.
7. Read Labels
This applies to both food and the things you put on your body. By reading the labels you can make educated choices about what you eat and the beauty products you use. Jessica says that learning more about the right ingredients for your health will empower you to make the right choices little by little in all areas of your life.
