Jackson Warne, 23, revealed how he’s been working out his health this year while grieving the passing of his cricketer father, Shane Warne.
Warne died tragically due to suspicion of having a heart attack on March 4 at the age of 52, after being found unresponsive in a villa in Thailand where he was staying with friends.
Now Jackson says that instead of making himself “suffering” this year, he decided to practice healthy habits to get through the shock.

“This year I can go downhill easily”, he wrote on Instagram. “I could have drunk a lot of alcohol, gambled too much, skipped exercise, ate junk food and didn’t socialize. It was miserable.”
He added, “But I didn’t. I didn’t use this trauma as an energy for life. I surrounded myself with good people, went to the gym EVERY DAY, drank water, swam, laughed. lots and steady. 1 day at a time.”
Jackson later added that he’s “the happiest and healthiest person I’ve ever had. Health is wealth. It only takes $0 to exercise, laugh, drink, and go out.”
He then thanked his followers, who continue to message him every day and support him.

The year proved difficult for Jackson, his sisters Brooke and Summer, and their mother Simone Callahan. Jackson even celebrated his 23rd birthday just months after his father passed away, in May.
Jackson was born on May 20, 1999, and shared a post just days after his birthday this year where he acknowledged the milestone was “a difficult event to celebrate”.
“I was fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful friends and family to make it such a special weekend,” he wrote in his birthday post. “This year I turn 23, which is a very special number.”
That’s the number Shane chose to wear on his Australia jersey in one-day international test matches. He is said to have worn the number 23 in honor of his childhood hero, Australian footballer Dermott Brereton.
