There’s something about Cameron Diaz that just screams happiness. The 43-year-old actress has had a fun-filled, exciting career, starring in some of Hollywood’s biggest films, but that’s not what’s most valuable to her.
“The most important things in my life are my relationships and my well-being—where I’m going as a human being in my development mentally, emotionally, and physically,” Cameron tells Women’s Health in our April 2016 issue.
Now, as as the co-author of the new book, The Longevity Book, Cameron is ready to share some of her biggest life lessons with ladies of all ages.
In Your 20s
"Bone mass is really important in your twenties— after that, we don’t build much bone anymore. So your twenties are your best chance to build bone through nutrition, physical activity, and strength training.”
In Your 30s
“After 35, most women’s eggs start to dwindle. There’s no way of knowing until you test yourself. That might be something you want to do in your early thirties if your fertility is important to you.”
In Your 40s
“Make connections, make friends, join communities, and really honor yourself. You’re getting ready to make that transition to menopause, so pay attention to where you’re at emotionally, physically, and mentally. The women who stress have it longer and harder, but the ones who accept it have it shorter and less severe.”
