Health Scan: Jennifer Maguire
Jennifer Maguire: everything in moderation.
Do you think you have a healthy lifestyle?
I think I have a balanced lifestyle. I am conscious of eating well but I never deprive myself of anything. I have a healthy relationship with food. I will try anything and love all food, except junk food.
Everything in moderation is the way to go. Don’t starve yourself and don’t be a pig. Enjoy all foods and exercise as much as you can. My only vice is booze but I have cut down and enjoy it more as a result.
How often do you exercise?
Two to three times a week I’m in the gym. Whenever I get a chance, I’ll walk or take a Dublin bike.
Do you get your five fruit and vegetables a day?
I just bought a juicer and try to have a vegetable juice as often as I can. I love grapefruit for breakfast and would eat bananas every day.
Do you worry?
Subconsciously I think I do. I don’t have trouble sleeping or anything but my mind is always going, and I’m always thinking of a million different things.
I’m reading a book at the moment called F*** it Therapy and it helps me to care less about things that really aren’t that important in the grand scheme of things.
What do you do to relax?
I can only ever really relax on holiday because my phone is my office and it’s always with me. I try to relax at home by turning off my phone and having a bath. I also find cleaning very therapeutic. I love animals and actually had great fun playing with a gorgeous KittenSoft cat at a photo shoot earlier today.
What’s your worst habit?
I’m not sure what the worst ones are. You’ll have to ask my fiancé, Lau, that.
