The 35-year-old model has said she's done trying to follow the latest trends when it comes to dieting and healthy eating, as she just wants to focus on what makes her happy, including eating whatever she wants.

Speaking to People magazine, she revealed that it's more important for her to stay calm at this point in her life. "I will say I indulge in some things I thought were maybe cuckoo before. I do appreciate a good sound bath, and I'm learning to meditate."

"I eat things when I want them. Because if I don't, my mind personally goes crazy. I kind of put my mind over body a little bit, mind and spirit over body. If it's going to make me happy and make me feel good, then I indulge in it. I've thrown all of that out of the window. I think now, at this point in my life, it's more important for me to enjoy things as they come," she said.

Giving up strict dieting has also helped in her mental wellness journey. Instead of focusing on her diet, the 'Lip Sync Battle' star finds balance in yoga and Pilates exercises.

"I do love yoga and pilates now, but the balance in it is really nice because it's nice to be able to kill two birds by playing with my kids and getting that activity in, honestly. To me, that's more fun," Chrissy shares.

"I've lived a whole life. I've spent way too many years counting calories, scheduling way too many workouts and trying to figure out what my term for wellness was for myself. I've been trying to figure that out for so long."
