Mariska Hargitay Beauty Secrets: May 2009 Health Magazine

Posted on May 5, 2009 at 5:06AM

45-year-old Mariska Hargitay, who suffered from a collapsed lung in January, is a picture of health on the May 2009 issue of Health magazine.

No matter how busy you get, making time to care for yourself—mind, body, and spirit—is a must. Here are a few of Law & Order: Special Victims Unitactress Mariska Hargitay secrets.

Take time for TLC. Set aside an hour a week for a mini “spa day.” (And don’t spend the time beating yourself up about how you don’t make time for yourself. TLC, remember?) Take a warm bath, light a beautiful candle. A little indulgence will go a long way.

Eat well. It’s about a balanced diet. And for me, it’s also about a little extra dark chocolate. They call it “the healthy chocolate.” No, seriously. A girl’s gotta leave room for chocolate, right?

Listen to your body. Make sure you’re finding the right balance of work, exercise, rest, and play.

Discover your creative self. Start a journal, paint a picture, grab your camera. And the best part is, you don’t even have to show any of it to anybody. Creative expression feeds your spirit, not some person looking over your shoulder telling you to paint faster.

Find your passion. I’m passionate about the Joyful Heart Foundation. The hearts we open, and the incredible people we encounter—these are the roots of inspiration for me.

Close your eyes and breathe. In the midst of the chaos, there’s a calm, healthy, and joyful self in there that may just need a little air.

Laugh. There’s just nothing better for the soul.
