Mariah Carey is Almost 50 But Looks Nowhere Near That At All Thanks to These Surprising Health Habits
Looking at pop diva Mariah Carey, one would find it hard to believe that the hitmaker is already nearing the big 5-0. And she worked hard to keep her youthful looks and fit physique. Here are some of the tips and habits the ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ singer has practiced over the years.
Big On Protein
In an interview with E! News, the singer revealed that she often eats protein-rich foods. She describes it as the worst though as she typically just sticks with consuming salmon, which can get monotonous as time passes. But Carey sticks with it because it works well for her.
Not Tracking Birthdays
Another tip she has is to stop keeping track and stressing over birthdays. Speaking with The Observer, the mother of two shared how she opts to celebrate other occasions like anniversaries instead. After all, she’d still like to celebrate life. Speaking of anniversaries, she just celebrated one as she remembers the release of her widely successful holiday album ‘Merry Christmas‘, which came out 25 years ago.
Indulging in Guilty Pleasures
Although she eats a pretty healthy diet, Carey still lets herself indulge in foods and drinks she enjoys. She admits that drinking wine is one of her guilty pleasures in life. A source says that the star often relaxes with a glass of white or red to unwind after a tiring day.
Embracing Her Shape
Over the years, the singer has also learned how to accept her body. She’s even told media mogul Oprah Winfrey her thoughts about people expecting others to be thin. But that doesn’t mean that the star doesn’t take care of her body through exercise. Although she admittedly isn’t a fan of going to the gym, Carey gets her daily workout by brisk walking either outside or on a treadmill. She also mixes things up by doing both cardio and resistance training.
Learning From the Past
Her self-care practices don’t end with keeping her body in top shape. She also has some tricks to stay mentally healthy and it’s all about learning from her past. More importantly, she says she’s learned from her previous relationships and now allows herself to be ‘feel worthy of being loved ‘.
The Importance of Self-Care
Another thing Carey got right is to not hesitate to get help in dealing with her mental health. She’s actually opened up about her bipolar disorder diagnosis after previously keeping it a secret for years.
Prior to this admission though, she said that she lived in denial and isolation as she feared that somebody would expose her. She’s now getting treatment for the mental health issue.
