The ‘Lights Out’ actress tells us about her latest health campaign.

Aussie actress Teresa Palmer and best friend Cassandra Basile have watched a multitude of friends and family be impacted by cancer (Palmer’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015). And thats what drew the duo to Pink Hope, the Sydney-based preventative health organisation that focuses on breast and ovarian cancer prevention.

To celebrate “Pinky Promise,” the five year-old foundation’s latest campaign that asks best friends to openly share information about their health, Palmer — who recently announced her second pregnancy via Instagram — and Basile told Vogue about the things that keep her happy and healthy as can be, and why Pinky Promise is an initiative she’s deeply behind.

Below, Palmer shares her advise on living healthfully:

Name one thing that always makes you happy:
My son Bodhi (duh!) also this pregnancy with my next baby has been really joyful!

What’s the most important thing in your life?
Continuing my journey of self-development, mindfulness and spirituality means that my greatest wish — to raise conscious-minded children — will be easier to reach. The more I learn, the more connected I feel to teaching my children how to navigate life in a more conscious and aware manner.

What’s the best health advice you’ve ever been given?
To not focus on health as being just one particular element; it’s equally striking the balance between spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. If any of those things are off kilter then I quickly become imbalanced. Health is about wholeness in all aspects.

Does breast/ovarian cancer run in your family?
Yes, very much so. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Luckily she was so on top of being screened and doing regular self checks that they got it very early. She completed 6 weeks of radiotherapy and she was told it was all gone. I’m so glad it was diagnosed so early. My Aunty died of breast cancer when she was in her 40s so it’s very prevalent in our family.

What are you going to Pinky Promise?
I’m going to Pinky Promise to slow down. My life can be super hectic, being a mama, working and managing a household means I dedicate such little time to self-care. It’s something I know I need to work on. I immediately become imbalanced when I am not cultivating moments to meditate, recharge and slow down outside of my obligations.

What made you want to support Pink Hope and get involved with Pinky Promise?
It’s wonderful to bring awareness to the simplicity of opening up to your friends about health. We need to remind each other to do everything we can to take care of ourselves. Pink Hope highlights the importance of keeping the lines of communication open, this is a really special and important campaign and I was honoured to be asked to participate.

Basile shares her best health advice, here:

What’s the most important thing in your life?
Aside from my partner, family and friends, just being happy. At the end of the day, life is so unpredictable and short and so when you really break it down and get to the nitty gritty, as long as you’re happy, nothing else matters. If I had to choose a material possession I would say my camera. I am nicknamed the ‘Basarazzi’ because I love me a photo. I am not so great in front of the camera but love capturing moments and memories with loved ones.

Best advice you’ve ever received for your health and wellbeing?
That the doctor is not always right! Trust your intuition and know that while western medicine is obviously very important and amazing in so many ways and often necessary, I think it is important to strike a balance, find natural remedies and alternate therapies and listen to your gut. Your body knows what it is trying to tell you and really channel that and trust it. Health and wellbeing is more than just what you eat and being introduced to meditation and mindfulness is also one of the best things that has ever happened to me — I have always been such an anxious and stressed person and it’s taken me a long time to start to get that under control and it’s been by incorporating mindfulness.
