Cameron Diaz is beautiful. She’s always been beautiful and time is certainly leading us to believe she always will be. The actress just released her second lifestyle/health book, The Longevity Book, which is all about aging and her routine for staying healthy. In an interview with The Cut, Diaz reminds us why the world loves her and offers a glimpse into her life.
So, if you want to live (and look) like Cameron D…and Destiny (sorry, couldn’t help myself,) these are the Dos and Don’ts:
Do start your day with energy
“For me that starts with getting up, brushing my teeth, and drinking some water — I drink a liter of water straight down — I meditate, I work out, have breakfast, and I get my day started,” says Diaz. All of that seems doable. You’ll have to get up earlier, but doable.
I’m so excited to continue the conversation because learning that you can age well, will actually help you age better. If you understand how your body works then you can take action to help keep it in the best possible condition so it can carry you through a long and beautiful life. | Read my full post at www.OurBodyBook.com @thebodybook #linkinprofile #longevitybook #knowledgeispower #everyoneages
Don’t take wellness for granted
Diaz says that we think of wellness as something most of us are born with, but it’s important to realise that getting older doesn’t mean you have to lose that. “I look at wellbeing as a responsibility that I have to myself that nobody else can do for me,” she told The Cut. “I have to embrace and engage in it actively on my own. It’s my responsibility.
“That’s why writing this book was so important to me, because it was information I didn’t know before, and in knowing it, I am more empowered. If people don’t have this type of knowledge, how are they going to be empowered to live a happy, healthy, strong life?”
Do follow the five pillars of wellbeing
Diaz says, “There are five pillars of wellbeing, with nutrition, physical activity, good sleep, stress release, and loving, connected relationships.” She explains that those five pillars, along with genetics, environment and our choices impact the way our cells change, which in turn affects how we age.

Don’t rely on supplements
For Diaz, nutrition is “pretty much the ultimate.” She says it the biggest element of wellbeing that’s your own choice. But, she says, “It’s important to get nutrition by not relying on supplements, but from whole food — foods that haven’t been processed or preserved with chemicals.”
