Before the quarantine, Paltrwo noted that she way always trying to get ‘wellness moments’ in, but she wasn’t ‘really decompressing’ until the weekends or on vacations.
‘Now I feel different, letting my body go to sleep and wake up in its natural rhythm, having my kids around all the time, eating meals together and having meaningful conversations’, she said of her children – daughter Apple, and son Moses, 14 – who she shares with ex Chris Martin.
‘We linger at the table; our dinners are an hour and a half long. My heart feels fuller, and my mind feels calmer in the respect’, Paltrow noted.
As for how she de-stresses? ‘I try to do exercises every day for my back and neck because all the Zoom calls I’m on’, she shared.
In addition, Paltrow says she and her husband Brad Falchuk go for walks at least three to four times per week. She also takes online fitness and yoga classes.
Back in April, Paltrow revealed that she would be donating an old gown she wore to the Oscars to help provide coronavirus relief.
The actress’ act of kindness was a part of the ‘All in challenge’ spearheaded by Leonardo DiCaprio that allows contestants a chance to win once-in-a-lifetime fan experiences with celebrities.
The gown Paltrow decided to action off was a band-beaded silver Calvin Klein dress she wore to the 2000 Oscars.
Paltrow explained at the time that she believed it was a ‘good one to donate’ because its ‘end of the 90s’ style has since made a comeback in the fashion industry. However, her comments contradicted the ones she made years earlier where she suggested the designer frock wasn’t very special, and in fact, quite boring.
Fans immediately blasted the star in the comments section of her Instagram announcements to remind her that she once listed the same dress on a list of her best and worst Oscars looks. In her words, Paltrow formerly labeled the gown just ‘okay’.
Paltrow’s donation followed in the footsteps of the other celebrities who joined the challenge. Ellen DeGeners took it upon herself to donate $1 million to the cause. Meanwhile, actor Matthew McCogneres announced his donation would allow fans to enter to win a chance to join him at a Univerrsity of Austin football game.
All the proceeds are said to be divided among Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, The World Central Kitchen and America’s Food Fund.
