Q&A with our beautiful Australian swimwear model Elise Zecevic
After a big day working, if the weather is looking up Ill go for a swim at the beach or I like to listen to music, have a boogie and just lay down and unravel my mind.
In regards to diet and exercise its always changing. Some days I eat lots of junk food and other days Im eating nutritious, fresh food, it all depends on my schedule and how my body is feeling at the time. As for exercise I don't have a set routine at the gym, instead I get moving from bush walking, adventuring or swimming in the ocean and just being out and about.
Im not one to be too strict on myself with diet and exercise as I prefer to just go with how my mind and body are feeling, I find that works best for me, although everyone is different!
Dance and walk! When I'm feeling down I like to feel it at its fullest, have a cry, write down my frustrations and laze around, accepting the emotion rather than pushing it away. Once I've allowed it to be felt, I build enough energy to put on some tunes and dance around or walk amongst nature to centre myself again. Sometimes picking up a paint brush and just flowing on the canvas also works for me.
Happiness to me is when I'm feeling in my element, when I have faith in what I'm venturing towards, and when I come back to my most natural state. It's just a feeling of pure joy within myself, that cannot be given by the things that surround me, which only hold me temporarily.
It would have to be my eyes. They just tell so much, you'll learn a lot about yourself by looking into your own eyes when you're going through different emotions or situations. I find the eyes so intriguing.
Just hang in there. Everyone has a reason, we all live in our own world, so hold your forgiveness as it is a gift and never doubt the power within you. Despite anything happening around you, whats meant to be is meant to be. You are on your way to what you wish for yourself, it will happen.
