The world-famous supermodel admitted that she went “through difficult times” but said that those challenging moments helped her shift her perspective and adopt a new outlook on life.

“I’ve always trusted that every situation, no matter how challenging, has something to teach us and happens for our growth. … I tried to focus on my children, my health and my projects and dreams,” she said, according to Us Magazine.

43-year-old Bündchen said she relied on three “fundamental” things to help to keep her on-track and feel more at peace with the new direction her life was taking. She cited “eating healthy, exercising daily, and taking time to rest your mind and body,” as being the critical elements that have helped her along the way.

“Maturity has brought me a better acceptance and understanding of myself,” she said. (RELATED: Gisele Bündchen Sets The Record Straight On Dating Rumors)
