The 43-year-old actress – who is married to Benji Madden – values her relationships highly, but when it comes to herself, she focuses on her mental, emotional and physical development.
She told Women’s Health magazine: “The most important things in my life are my relationships and my well-being–where I’m going as a human being in my development mentally, emotionally, and physically.
The ‘Bad Teacher’ actress – who has co-authored a new tome, ‘The Longevity Book’ – also shared tips for women of all ages with the publication.
When it comes to her own age group, she advises preparing for the menopause and “honouring yourself” by having an understanding and acceptance of the time of life.
She advised: “Make connections, make friends, join communities, and really honor yourself. You’re getting ready to make that transition to menopause, so pay attention to where you’re at emotionally, physically, and mentally.
“The women who stress have it longer and harder, but the ones who accept it have it shorter and less severe.”
For those in their 20s, she suggests focusing on building bone mass, while 30-something women should consider their fertility.
She said: “After 35, most women’s eggs start to dwindle. There’s no way of knowing until you test yourself. That might be something you want to do in your early thirties if your fertility is important to you.”
