“As a child, my mother taught me: the more you do, the more you do. I do not know how to rest from the word “in general”. Besides, I am a rather boring person: I am absolutely not suitable for fun and long heart-to-heart conversations. I get terribly excited when it comes to work, otherwise I frankly miss. So the “relax and have fun” stage is definitely not for me.
To reach one beautiful goal, you need to work hard every day. Naturally, everyone would like to do something “high”, strategically important, but I believe that as long as there is strength, youth, you need to roll up your sleeves and take on any, even the most insignificant, routine business. Although, of course, I am still a dreamer and think about the global no less “, – Miroslava Duma, founder of the Buro 24/7 project.

“When they say that this or that magazine wants to put on the cover just a person, just a normal woman, it offends me. I have a question: what am I, crazy? What is wrong with me? Am I different? It’s not fair. You cannot point a finger at someone and say that he is fat or some other. In modern society, this is simply uncivilized. It’s the same with skinny girls, who are called anorexic to the right and left. For example, I eat like an ordinary girl, go in for sports. I can eat three burgers in a day and stay in the same shape – this is my constitution. I am who I am. You need to be smart about how you call people.
When I was pregnant, I followed a diet, always remained very active and played sports. I never forgot about it and, to be honest, I was not particularly worried about my figure. Besides, I think that being a mom is already a kind of training. Now Iioni weighs 13.5 kg, and each time, lifting her in my arms, I seem to be exercising with dumbbells “, – Coco Rocha, model.

“I’m not a vegetarian, but my diet is mostly vegetables, fruits, nuts, and the right fats (avocado, coconut and flaxseed oil). Every morning before breakfast, I drink almost a liter of lemon water. Then I prepare a branded smoothie: a banana, an apple, a pear, a bunch of parsley, celery, spinach, flax seeds and a little water to mix everything in a blender.
Girlfriends often ask what to eat and drink to look good after a transatlantic flight. I do this: before getting on the plane, I buy a liter bottle of water, add a pinch of Himalayan salt and drink it all during the flight. This will keep your body hydrated. Secondly, I take cucumbers and tangerines with me, they have a lot of liquid.
I once had a shoot in Thailand and the flight lasted twenty-eight hours. I took a kilo of cucumbers and tangerines with me and ate them all the way. In Bangkok, we landed fresh and full of strength. ” Valentina Zelyaeva, model, nutrition specialist.

“Prepare a simple but eye-catching reminder plate to remind you of the four foods to keep on hand and the four foods to cut out. Stick it on your fridge or kitchen board to take notes.
Get into the habit of storing healthy foods in the most visible place in the center of the refrigerator. So, meeting their gaze, you will learn to snack wisely. Hide large plates away and only use plates no more than 25 centimeters in diameter. In them, the portion seems to be larger, and thanks to this trick, the brain is content with less food. ” Dan Buettner, author of the bestselling Blue Zones.

“Sometimes just one kind word is enough to feel elated. And it is very important that this word was said during a person’s life. Actually, I think there are no people who are completely incapable of good. It happens that a person has become hardened and it seems to him that there is no room for kindness in his soul, but this is a mistake, this is temporary: not doing good deeds, a person feels uncomfortable in this world.
Silence is some kind of special state of the world and the human soul. It seems to me that we feel ourselves a part of nature, a drop of the ocean in silence only. Beauty cannot be understood outside of silence ”, – Evgeny Leonov, actor.
