Celebrities Endorse Wellness
It has been true forever–whatever the Hollywood big-wigs do, everyone else wants to do, too. One person walks down the red carpet looking like they rolled right out of bed and before you know it the “messy look” is in. Some celebrities seem oblivious to the power they have on the public, deny their role as role model and drive their lives into one brick wall after another, usually on a suspended license. There are those who take their personal power to a higher level, literally creating the world they wish to live in, one fan at a time.
If we’re really honest with ourselves most of us can admit that our lives aren’t nearly as exciting as an epic Hollywood film. The on and off screen capers of the rich and famous are far more interesting than life in a cubical, picking up the kids from daycare or getting milk on the way home from work. Since Hollywood gossip is seldom good news, it’s hard to imagine that there is anything in the tabloid generators that can be seen as positive. There are those with a very positive agenda and the better they are the harder their impact on the world.
Some celebrities are political and some pick a cause to support. “Eat like a model to look like a model,” the newest crazy is health, wellness and new dietary trends. Since everyone wants to look like a fashion model, letting a fashion model tell us how she stays so fit seems like first-hand information from an expert, but that’s no longer the reason. With a more internal focus, eating right and exercising is more about feeling good than it is about looking good. Yoga, mediation and Eastern Philosophies are very common in Hollywood. The Dali Lama is quoted on the red carpet as much as he is in humanities courses.
Why Fitness Aren’t As Bad As You Think
The same people who are usually in line to get so-and-so’s haircut are now in line for a yoga class, vegan restaurant or lecture on sustainability. Fans are finding peace in a deeper message, one that tells them to love themselves. “Organic” is the newest endorsed brand in everything and it isn’t even paying for the privilege. Fans are starting to hold their celebrity fixations to a more well-rounded template, seeing them as real people who are living fully in the moment rather than merely taking their advice on lip gloss and shoes. In time, that positive energy has to spread.
The Beginner’s Guide to Celebrities
Celebrities are invited into our living room every night as we watch them on the television or in a movie. We know better, but somehow it still feels like they are part of the family. From hospital health scares to adorable pet photos, we follow the lives of these people we’ve never even met. It used to seem like we could walk a mile in their glamorous shoes if we bought a pair for ourselves, and feeling a little closer to the red carpet gave us a break from our personal monotony. Now, we take more time to meditate, eat right, stretch and practice conscious breathing, walking a mile barefoot in their example. We’re prioritizing soul over designer shoes, and the world will be better for it.
