I find it very difficult to switch off because I am always so busy with different projects, and there is always something to do. So the best way for me to stop and unwind has to be by having a bath, as it means that I can’t do anything else other than relax.
People often forget about mental health, addressing your mind-set is so important with what you can achieve, both for inner happiness and with your health. I really try and use a positive attitude and read a lot of motivational books… Louise Hay, and Dr Wayne Dyer are two of my favourite inspirations.
I think massage is the best way to relieve tension, so I try to have one at least once a month. I build up tension mainly in my neck, shoulders and back, but massage also gets rid of any muscular issues I have at the time from dancing or training. I usually perform a few of these stretches at home in the morning or evening.
It is very important to stretch out the muscles, and I find that yoga is the perfect way to do this without over stretching. Everyone is so used to working muscles for strength and tone and never think it’s important to stretch them out, but the stretching is what releases tension and stress, so it’s really important to do both. Especially for women as it makes your muscles long and lean, which is far more feminine than bulking up. Also yoga works all areas of your body and mind, as well as burning calories.
I never deprive my body of anything as if I crave something I probably need it. I think anything in moderation is fine, but I always try and have a well balanced diet (with treats) and just try to avoid alcohol unless I’m on a special night out… and sleep is so important for a general healthy look and mindset.
Looking good on the outside can certainly help with a performance and feeling good at the time as it boosts your confidence… But we also know this is not the thing that really makes you happy. I know the most physically beautiful people in the industry that tend to be the most insecure and unhappy.
