For example: earlier this year, she admitted to carrying a pH balance urine tester kit round in her handbag so she could check that her body was in an “alkaline state” at all times (you don’t?).
While we still haven’t adopted that practice, her latest wellbeing trick has made us straight up cheering.
In a post on Instagram, the 51-year old revealed she and her family were embarking on a digital detox.
“We are unplugging from technology and taking to rest for the weekend… taking a break from all the screens and social media (yes even IG!), relax and unwind in the natural world,” she captioned the photo of her feet dangling in the sea. (Post continues after gallery.)
Elle went on to say that there’s a link between the light emitted from our screens and “altered sleep” and “stress”.
“We are seeing it as a mental cleanse. Unplugging gives time to act mindfully and ‘uni-task’, focusing on exactly one thing at a time. It’s this consciousness and focus that can help being a refreshed point of view,” she explained.
The supermodel, who has been sharing plenty of images from her family holiday in Europe, struck a chord with many of her 68,000 Instagram followers.
“So true”, “Will try too!” and “Totally true – enjoy your weekend with each other,” many wrote in comments on the picture.
“The impact of spending so much time scrolling and scrolling through social media is feeling tired, a stressed brain in a state of information overload and a lowered mood,” she explains. (Post continues after gallery.)
“Research has shown technology to be addictive therefore it’s a good idea for each of us to check in from time to time and make sure we’re in control of our technology use rather than the other way round.”
