Celebrity Spotlight: Cameron Diaz Gets Real On Aging, Menopause And Fertility

The 43-year-old actress and co-author of The Longevity Book, graces the April issue of Women’s Health magazine where she shared her biggest life lessons with ladies of all ages.

According to her, in your 20s;

“Bone mass is really important in your twenties— after that, we don’t build much bone anymore. So your twenties are your best chance to build bone through nutrition, physical activity, and strength training.”

In your 30s, it is important to pay attention to fertility:

“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.”

She further added that preparing for menopause in your 40s is crucial for a woman’s mental well-being:

“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.”

But above all,

“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.”
