Halle Berry just celebrated her 52nd birthday

People can’t believe how she manages to look like a goddess at all times

She’s been sharing some of her secrets on Instagram where more than 3 Million people are following her

She says she trains her mind as well as her body through yoga and meditation

“Fitness is not just about running, lifting and punching”

“For me, being athletic and super fit is also about being still, stretching and breathing”

“I never go a day without some sort of meditation”

“Trust me, it will start to transform your thinking, which will change your life”

“When I’m done, I have ultimate clarity and I feel at peace”

Berry’s fitness regime also contains some kickass boxing and weightlifting elements

“I know how hard it is to get motivated at times, but when my workout is fun, it’s a whole lot easier!”

“It’s often easier to workout with a partner. A partner holds you accountable so you won’t quit halfway through”

“I also want to share one of my secret weapons that I think has helped me defy my age and look and feel younger than my years”

“The secret is Bone Broth! It’s made with bones that are simmered for at least 8 hours”

She takes nutrition very seriously

She also finds time to read and relax her mind getting lost in the books

As well as taking care of her two beautiful children
