The Brazilian beauty revealed that getting rid of ‘bad habits’ helped her a lot

Model, actress and businesswoman  Gisele Bündchen  is a #bosschica in her own right.

Gisele has been open about her battle with anxiety in the past and recently revealed how she was able to overcome it. In an interview with Vogue Australia, she worked to “replace bad habits with good habits” and explained how that made all the difference for her health. The former Victoria’s Secret model shared how removing sugary foods from her diet, quitting smoking and consistent exercising helped reduce her anxiety levels.

Gisele explained, “I felt like I reached rock bottom. It became so unbearable I couldn't breathe and I thought: 'I gotta change.' My system was so used to that life it was in shock because I stopped everything, so it took time. We are beings of habit and I think you can't just expect to do something you have always done and stop. You have to replace bad habits with good habits.

She continued, “So when I stopped having coffee, the mocha frappuccino for breakfast and four cigarettes when I woke up in the morning, I started running. I don't run anymore, but I ran then because it allowed me to feel my lungs and every time I ran for 20 minutes I was like, ‘OK, I can feel my lungs, OK, I'm not smoking.’ And then I was meditating with breathing techniques so I would not feel anxious.
