Miranda Kerr
may be going through a separation, but she's staying positive! 

The Victoria's Secret model covers the December issue of SELF magazine, where she opens up about being happy and shares her workout secrets.

This is the first interview Miranda has done since she split from Orlando Bloom last month -- and while she may just be putting on a brave face, Kerr seems like she's really happy.

"If I’m having a challenging moment, I jump for joy. Literally," she tells the mag. "After a minute, I feel better, and after a few minutes, I’m really happy. Everything else just drops off. It gets me out of my head and into my body, and it makes me feel present. Everyone has challenges. But if you know your strengths and expand on them, you’re going to radiate. Happiness is a choice we make."

The 30-year-old must be taking some of her own advice -- going through a breakup isn't easy!

"No one can be consistently positive, but why not make the choice that makes you feel better rather than the one that drags you down?,” she explains. 

The model also has her own personal motto: "One mantra I like: ‘I am a being of light and love, and I radiate that to everyone I meet.’ It helps me keep things joyful."

And if you want to have a body like Miranda, the brunette beauty says it's important to only indulge every once in a while, eat right and workout. Kerr also makes sure to get in a few minutes of various strength training exercises four times a week. 

"I try to do this little power-workout DVD, PACE Express by Al Sears, M.D., four times a week. You do intervals with moves such as lunges, squats and star jumps. It's only 12 minutes, so it's definitely attainable. And you feel like you've had a good workout afterward," she tells the mag.
