It’s probably pretty obvious at this point that our love for all things French runs deep. What can we say? There’s just something so aspirational about that je ne sais quoi: the fact that Parisian women manage to look both completely put-together and impossibly effortless at the same time. In truth, we know that the secret is balance. French girls really do care how they look, but they also know not to fuss too much about it. And this almost laissez-faire ( that roughly translates to let do) approach happens to align with their summer fitness and diet strategies as well.
Let’s get an insight on this.
Starve your ego, feed your stomach
Incredible food and wine are essential parts of French culture—something that natives aren’t just unwilling to sacrifice but also don’t have to. By committing to small serving sizes and really savoring every bite, they don’t feel the need to overdo it.
They believe in moderation
French girls are experts at practicing moderation. for example , if a french girl is drinking wine in the evening, she avoids fruit and fruit juice during the day. See that’s moderation.
They pick on healthy habits early
By learning to enjoy fresh, seasonal foods in small portions and drinking lots of water by example, French children establish these mindful eating habits early on.You’d be hard-pressed to find a French woman who doesn’t cite her maman as the ultimate beauty and wellness influence.
They walk a lot, like alot
Don’t underestimate a good stroll—French women know that the physical and mental health benefits abound.Paris is a city where you can walk a lot. Sometimes women just walk for an hour, if they have time, which is the same hour they would have gone to the gym—the mind is happier that way.
Water is their best friend
Sure, it‘s the oldest (and simplest) trick in the book. But it’s a non-negotiable ritual for French women, something that they swear by for better skin and overall well-being. They drink liters and liters of herbal tea and water.
Feeling good is a priority
For French women, any kind of wellness ritual is pointless if it makes you miserable. “Beauty is something to give you pleasure,” they say. “Because when you feel good, you look good.” Not vice versa.
