Miriam Meltser Lifestyle
As a New Yorker who grew up in the ’80s, Miriam Meltser loves to feel comfortable in her own skin. She credits this attitude—and her love of yoga and cycling—with helping her maintain a healthy body.
“I was always active as a kid,” Miriam says. “My parents were both athletes so I got tons of exercise. And it didn’t stop when I got older. I kept cycling, yoga, running and doing other things because it made me happy. It’s important to have a healthy lifestyle if you want to stay mentally sharp as well as physically fit.”
Since she’s always been health-conscious, Miriam has never put too much pressure on herself to be thin or have perfect body image…! “I like my body the way it is,” she laughs. “But I also know that it can be better so I’m always working on making small tweaks and improvements.”
One of the ways Miriam feels her best is by incorporating plenty of movement into her day-to-day routine. “Yoga really helps me de-stress and reset my mood,” she says. “It also makes me more flexible so I can do lots of different things outdoor (like cycling) without getting injured.”
And while physical activity isn’t the only thing that keeps Miriam healthy…
