This week we’re giving you a new reason to check out two of the world’s hottest supermodels. Believe it or not, Gigi and Bella Hadid can teach you something about life that’s truly worth knowing. Between strutting their stuff down catwalks in New York, London, Milan and Paris (where Kangana Ranaut wants to spend her honeymoon), the Hadid sisters make it a point to unwind in style. Here are their top tips for romancing the pause whenever the opportunity arises:
TRAVEL FOR LEISURE AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN
Gigi and Bella are sun-chasers; they pause to soak up generous doses of vitamin D whenever they can. In April, Bella set Instagram aflame with posts of her holiday in Mexico, where she was taking time to “reflect and recharge” her batteries in a fiery red bikini. Barely a month later, she was off on a beach vacay again; this time with stunner Kendall Jenner for company. Then, in July, Bella flew to London to pack in some leisure (here’s what Alia Bhatt did there recently), before ending up on the beaches of Mykonos (where the party scene is legendary). No less a globetrotter, Gigi heads out on regular holidays too; literally flying from Tahiti to Toronto when time permits. Both beauties swear by this form of R&R — there’s nothing like a getaway to get back to work feeling pumped and ready to take on the world.
TAKE A CULINARY JOURNEY IF YOU CAN’T JET OFF
When flying to Beijing for a change of scene isn’t feasible, Bella and Gigi do the next best thing: they take a taste-bud tour! Going by their figures, you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re not foodies, but that’s far from the truth. Allow the exotic ambience of an upmarket Oriental eatery to transport you to the Far East (you could also opt for Middle Eastern or Italian fare). It may be temporary, but when your taste buds are tingling, the treat will trick your brain into feeling as relaxed as you would on holiday.
ENJOY LIFE’S LITTLE PLEASURES
Bella loves to relax by snorkelling in her bath tub (she isn’t joking) and confesses to using this time to reflect on activities that bring her joy. It may be a little pick-me-up, but it goes a long way in keeping her relaxed. She also plays Jenga with herself and has been taking out one block after another from the same wooden tower for quite a while now.
SHARE YOUR UPS AND DOWNS WITH A LOVED ONE
Bella and Gigi are A-list celebrities — and fame comes with its pitfalls. To tackle stress head-on, the Hadid hotties share their ups and downs with one another. Sometimes they talk things over, sometimes they savour a quiet drink together (like us, with our Black Dog) and sometimes they go to Disneyland to get away from it all!
GO TO SLEEP!
Nothing compares to real rest when it comes to recharging your mind and body. Both Bella and Gigi love to party, but they agree that their beauty sleep is a priority too. Clearly, it does wonders for them!
