We chatted with Mediacorp Star Rebecca Lim at the recent launch of Australian supplement brand Swisse. Find out how she keeps fit, what’s her favorite local food and what her plans are for SG50.
I think the important thing is to focus on yourself to feel better and to accept yourself for who you are and stop comparing. That is what yoga has really taught me and I appreciate that a lot.
1. You Look Beautiful And Fit, Share With Us What’s Your Fitness Routine.
I really wish I had more of a fitness routine because nowadays my filming schedule is really, really hectic. I used to exercise 3 times a week, I would go for jogs at least a 5km jog each time but after injuring my knee I switched to yoga, that was about 2 years ago. I hydrate myself a lot the whole day, when i wake up the first thing i do is drink a glass of water and I have my breakfast. I try to eat a healthy breakfast but I still enjoy my local breakfast like hawker food. Immediately after that I take my supplements and that has been a habit for many, many, many years.
2. Has Yoga Helped You Balance Your Life ?
A lot actually. I think not only in a physical sense but mentally it has helped me a lot, I practice Bikram. Some days you can do it and some days you can’t. It has taught be to really, not be so hard on myself we are humans at the end of the day, every day our body feels different you just do your own thing and on your own mat and try focus on yourself in the mirrors and you don’t compare yourself with the other person who is bending and everything and you feel so bad about yourself . I think the important thing is to focus on yourself to feel better and to accept yourself for who you are and stop comparing. That is what yoga has really taught me and I appreciate that a lot.
3. What Is Your One Foodie Indulgence?
For breakfast I actually indulge quite a bit because it’s the first meal of the day and so I don’t feel as bad eating a lot. On days I know I have shoots and I need to look good I try to eat healthier like i have yoghurt and muesli or i do my overnight oats and eat it the next day. On other day s I like my economic Bee Hoon with my eggs and cabbage and luncheon meat or my Nasi Lemak or Wanton Mee. These are the very ordinary breakfasts I have. Especially if you are eating with family you don’t want to be the only one eating the healthy and everyone else is having all these wonderful foods.
4. You were on Miss Singapore and a guest judge on supermodel me. Being Judged oir Judging – Which is harder?
Judging . For supermodel me it was extremely tough for me to critique the models because I didn’t come from a modelling background going into it I didn’t feel I had the experience to critique them but since I was there i though I could give positive criticism constructive criticisms . I didn’t want to be hard on them and shatter their dreams or anything like that. I left that to the professionals who were already there. For me it was more just encouraging them. It was a very new experience for me and it was my first time judging and I learnt a lot from that experience as well.
4. What to you is a Healthy Life and how would you describe it?
Everything in moderation, I guess. I think if you do anything in extremity that’s not heathy at all. As long as you feel good I think, it just all goes back to not comparing with other people. Just do what feel right for yourself as long as you are not harming anyone around you. I think that’s a healthy lifestyle. Be happy. I think happiness is very underrated in the world today I think I happiness will lead to a happy lifestyle.
