The lovely Heather Locklear (45), is on the cover of February's SHAPE magazine and looks stunning as always (damn her!). The issue features her top 10 rules for healthy living. Here are a few of them:
Heather’s Rule #2: Work out even when you don’t feel like it!
“There are times when I feel lazy and just want to staying bed all day…but I know that working out is the best way to get those endorphins going, which will make me feel better, which will make me feel better emotionally and physically.”
“To help me stay positive at 7 a.m. while I’m putting on my gym clothes, I say things like, ‘Oh lunges! I love lunges! Let’s do another set!’”
Heather’s Rule #3: Listen to your kids
“Ava’s a great eater. (Heather’s daughter) She only eat things like fruits and vegetable and sushi – no junk food…It’s ironic because I want to set a good example for her with my eating habits, and she’s the one who’s helping me!”
Heather’s Rule #5: Keep your friends closer
“It’s my girlfriends who lift me up when I need it the most.”
Heather’s Rule #7: Take time to pamper yourself
“I’ve learned it’s really important to make time for me.”
Heather’s Rule #9: Dance on tables! (Advice from her mother)
“Neither of us remembers why she said it, but the message was to enjoy life and have fun. And boy, did I have fun! My priorities have changed as I’ve gotten older. I still want to have fun, but now that philosophy translates to good health, good friends, good food, and good roles.”
Heather’s Rule #10: Always be grateful for what you have
Heather has been through some difficult times – her separation with Richie last year – she refuses to let it get her down.
“This is my second chapter. It’s my chance to focus on Ava, on myself and on what I want to do. The thing I’ve learned in my 40s is that when you look out your window, you have to look past the windowsills. There is life beyond my little home.”
