Actress Salma Hayek is 57 years old, but she has a toned bikini body that many people much younger than her would certainly envy. How is this possible?

Recently, during an interview on Entertainment Tonight, Hayek opened up about her secret to staying in shape. You might think that she exercises a lot or has given up eating carbs. No. She doesn’t credit diet or exercise for her toned physique. Instead, she claims that something quite unexpected is the reason she is in such good shape.

What’s her secret? Hayek claims that it’s meditation. She explained, “People say it’s exercising. I think it’s meditation.”

Hayek believes that she can see a clear difference in the way she looks when she meditates verses when she skips meditating for awhile.

Why does meditation work for Hayek? She claims it’s because it’s something that is easy for her to do and that she enjoys doing. She doesn’t feel that way about exercise. She explained, “For me, exercising is hard. It’s really, really difficult to have the discipline to do it. But meditation is a walk in the park, because it’s my own form of it.”

Watch the video below to hear Hayek explain for herself why she believes meditation is the key to her slim figure.

On Hayek’s 57th birthday, she shared several pictures of herself on the beach in a red bikini. Along with the photos, she wrote, “I’m so happy to be alive and so profoundly grateful for all the blessings!!!! My beloved family, my precious friends, my health, my work that keeps me going, my empowering team, my relationship with animals & nature, and the love of all my loyal fans. Happy 57th birthday to me!!!”

Do you believe that meditation can really be responsible for how toned a person looks? Do you think meditation can be as effective as exercise?
