Healthy Hollywood: Wellness Wednesday – Lauren Graham's Feel-Good Plan!

“I’ve definitely spent a lot of time worrying about work, taking jobs when I maybe could have taken some time off – really pushing myself,” reveals the “Parenthood” actress. Now, 43, Lauren Graham is learning to slow down and take care of number one - herself! Or, at least that’s the plan!

Lauren shares her love-your-life tricks in Health. The magazine’s March cover girl says the key to happiness is finding balance and accepting imperfection as a part of her day. Surprisingly, the actress who has had great success playing cool, hip single TV moms, reveals she’s struggled with her own body confidence issues.

“I’ve always thought my strengths were I’m smart, and I have a good sense of humor. I definitely struggle with feeling confident,” reveals Lauren to Health. Yet, she is learning to be more accepting and (even proud) of her girl-next-door beauty.

Lauren’s love of fitness helps to boost her feel-good spirits. “I’m probably most healthy in exercise. I’ve always really liked being active. I do Spinning classes, I run, I have a trainer, I do Pilates with my sister Shade,” states Lauren.

Forget any major makeup tricks, her biggest beauty secret is oh-so simple. “I have a little mini tramp, and sometimes I’ll just try to jump for 20 minutes. It gets your blood circulating and that always looks really pretty.”
