Miranda Kerr in Self December 2013: Happiness is a Choice We Make

She recently announced her split from hubby Orlando Bloom, but that hasn”t stopped Miranda Kerr from staying positive.

In the December 2013 issue of Self magazine, the former Victoria”s Secret Angel reveals how she stays happy despite stressful circumstances.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Kerr”s interview below. For more, be sure to visit Self!

On finding happiness in any situation:
“If I”m having a challenging moment, I jump for joy. Literally. After a minute, I feel better, and after a few minutes, I”m really happy. Everything else just drops off. It gets me out of my head and into my body, and it makes me feel present. Happiness is a choice we make. You can wake up and say, “Oh, I can”t believe it”s so cold,” or you can say, “Oh, wow, this is a great opportunity for me to try out my new sweater.” No one can be consistently positive, but why not make the choice that makes you feel better rather than the one that drags you down”

On her favorite mantra:
“”I am a being of light and love, and I radiate that to everyone I meet.” It helps me keep things joyful.”

On keeping up with her diets:
“If you take care of yourself, you can give more to everything else. For breakfast, I”ll have either eggs with sauerkraut and avocado, or oatmeal with honey and goat”s milk. For lunch, I”ll have grilled fish and a salad with kale, spinach, broccoli, fennel, avocado, pine nuts and feta cheese. Dinner is lentil soup and steamed vegetables or roasted chicken.”
