Having a great social media presence is a blessing and a curse – although fortunately for Mandy Moore biggest one is. The  s  s Us star fills her 3.3 million Instagram followers in her everyday life on set and on all her travels – and counts them happily For advice on gluten-free treats (she has recently learned she has a strong gluten sensitivity) for the best manicure in Philadelphia. (PS There is a difference between food allergies and food intolerances.)
"Instagram is a great community in that sense," says Moore, 34 People The other day I was like, hey Philly! I need a place to get a manicure and to eat, and people just pour in with great suggestions and I feel like it was the same with the gluten-free thing. I felt I was heading in the right direction, with food and cookbooks and meals that you like, and everyone was really great to get on the train and help me out. In other cases, social media, however, becomes a place of criticism, for example, when she was accused of cutting her waist down in a picture, or when people However, Moore does not lose sleep over it.

The night of our ascent to the summit we are around Waking up at 11:00 pm (after a few hours of sleep) to enjoy a few nervous minutes with a cup of coffee. It was time to dress in my warmest layers and begin the nearly 8-hour hike to the highest point in Africa – 19,341 feet. In total darkness, we took it with the Pole (slowly slow) and trudged through rain, sleet and snow seemingly everything on our person freeze (water bottles, backpacks, our eyelashes, hair, fingers, toes, e tc …) Strangely, I was Never so determined to master such a physical challenge, yet the elements of exhaustion and extremely cold weather were far more difficult than any of us. Apart from that, reaching the true summit threshold was more emotional and overwhelming than I thought possible. The Kilimanjaro demands much from those who traverse their tracks. They have no choice but to emerge. And we did that. There is nothing stronger than to realize that we are all capable of doing more than giving credit to ourselves. #whyihike #liveyouradventure #sponsored
"It's not something I'm thinking about. " She says. "You speak it directly and then you move on to the next thing, it's like," No! I did not do that. "And on to the next thing, something more important is happening in the world."
And Moore says people should do what they want-including plastic surgery or Photoshop-if it makes them happy.
"I'm pulling" Do not look at what the big deal would be in any case. It's like whatever someone does to feel better; I'm not judging, "she says," but I'm also good if I'm honest and sincerely align people. "
This judgment-free attitude extends to how she feels about her own body, Moore says she managed to avoid important body image problems, even as a teenage teenager who grew up in the music industry. (See: How Mandy Moore Uses Her Smartwatch to Achieve New Fitness Goals)
"I have different paths and I've been through adolescence, I think, as a young person in public, "she says," but I've always felt very well in my skin and people always let me be myself. "
These days Moore, who has worked with the vitamin company Nature's Way on the occasion of her 50th birthday, is very conscious and understands her body very well. "For her, wellness means" listening to my body. "
" It means every day to make sure that things feel a little different. That I have other needs. Life and stress could affect me Every day and very differently the next day. That's why I try to know that I have certain guidelines on how to incorporate wellness into my daily routine.
Moore makes sure you get enough sleep, drink lots of water and take vitamins every day, and if she needs a little more self-sufficiency, she'll "break away from the world."
"Me Just put my phone away, put on a file, take a bath, make a cup of tea, go out and have dinner with friends. It somehow varies, "she says," I think I'm pretty good at knowing my limit and when I have to take a step back and take a deep breath to figure out how to put one foot in front of the other.

"I've always been a wanderer – I lived near Griffith Park in Los Angeles for almost 15 years, practically in my back yard. But I've always wanted to climb the Kilimanjaro, so my love has been to be outside and realize that I can do something that seems impossible, "she says." I'd never camped before, so I had the Idea to be outside for a week and not taking a shower – all these new experiences – that I was capable of more than I could trust myself. "
Now Moore is itching to get back on the track.  "This love has definitely sparked this love and now I wonder what I can climb next," she says. "I'm about to be in my break [from filming] and I want me to do Fuji I want Reiner. I want Baker. I want the Everest Base Camp. I have great walking plans.
