Jennie Garth is on the cover of the brand new 2013 edition of Health magazine!
Inside she has some great advice on how to start the new year off fresh!
Heartbroken? Out of shape? Want to start dieting? Some combo of those three??
On overcoming heartbreak…
“When I’m in excruciating pain, like with what I’ve been through with my breakup and that grief and loss that’s just immobilizing, it helps to remember that it only lasts for 13 to 15 minutes, max. And then it’s over. Your mind is ready to go to something else. You might come back to it, but it helps to just know that that pain is not going to last forever.”
“I’m learning to date again. Looks aren’t important to me anymore…I like positive energy.”
On steering clear of fad diets…
“My biggest regret is putting my body through fad diets: Atkins, cleanses, the hCG diet. I lost like 18 pounds, but it came right back. The worst was fasting with colonics for three or four days. It was the most horrifying experience ever!”
On feeling in control…
“Every day, I just renew my healthy choices. I feel really good about myself now, and I don’t want to do anything to change that.”
On the importance of saying “I love you…”
“They’re my favorite words, and I don’t say them enough to other people, let alone to myself. When you say them, it makes you want to be gentle and kind. Even if you’re mad, there’s that love.”
On staying positive…
“There’s no room for negative self talk. None. Just ban it from your vocabulary.”
So there you have it!
It's mostly about being positive and loving yourself.
Sounds like perfect advice to us! Thanks, Jennie!
