Helena wished her younger sister a happy birthday 

She said: “I think it's important to shake it up and do as many different forms of workout as possible, but also to incorporate nature into them. 

"Swim in the ocean, swim in rivers, swim in lakes. Hiking, trekking, chopping wood – it's the best way of working out, because it doesn't really feel like a workout. It feels like you're alive.

Helena swears by icy cold plunges 

"This summer, several times a day, I would go down to the beach and sprint barefoot with my dog, jump in the ocean and just move around like crazy in the water. It's where I feel the calmest, happiest, most stable. It's just the Viking mentality. 

"I have this yearning to be near water. It’s almost an obsession. If I woke up one morning and had a mermaid tail, it wouldn't surprise me."
