Here are her lifestyle secrets.

Ashanti is heating up the islands – in her swimsuit. In one of her most recent posts, the body confident singer flaunts her famous curves in a bathing suit. "Bahama mama," she captioned the Instagram snaps. "Nelly is so lucky.. I'm just going to leave it at that," one of her followers commented, referencing her romantic reunion with the rapper. "Where the ring Nelly. Can u not see," added another. In a recent interview, the singer revealed her revamped approach to health and wellness, dishing on her top lifestyle secrets. 


She Has Become More Comfortable in Her Skin

"As you evolve and age, you become more comfortable in your skin. I might put on a bikini a little more often now than when I first came out," she recently told Prevention. "A lot of the confidence comes from within …. for me, it's just about staying true to myself and accentuating the good things I love about myself. I'm proud to be happy with who I am."


She Sets Boundaries


"With the position I'm in right now, I have to work hard and make some sacrifices. So, boundaries are important," she said about the importance of self-care. "I can do a bunch of interviews, but when I'm down to three or four hours of sleep, I have to [carve out some self-care time]. Creating a balance when working hard and going after all these amazing opportunities is essential. You have to be cognizant of your mental health, get enough sleep, drink enough water, and eat the right foods."


She Is Trying to Go Vegetarian


Ashanti has been promoting a mostly plant-based diet for a while, declaring herself a pescatarian. However, she told Prevention she is "trying to go vegetarian now."


She Juices


"What goes into your body should go hand-in-hand with your beauty routine," Ashanti told Prevention. "I have been on tour for months, and tour food is not good, but I am back on track with juicing and incorporating healthy food and exercise into my routine."


She Prioritizes Her Mental Health

"My mental health is amazing," Ashanti added. "I'm in a state of just being super grateful. I'm so blessed, and my heart is full." Protecting mental health is vital for overall well-being. Firstly, prioritize self-awareness, recognizing signs of stress or distress. Regularly engage in physical activity, as it releases endorphins that combat depression and anxiety. Prioritize sleep, ensuring 7-9 hours nightly. Build a support system of trusted individuals to share feelings with. Engage in mindfulness practices like meditation or deep breathing exercises. Set boundaries, avoiding over-commitment. Limit exposure to negative news or social media. Consume a balanced diet, emphasizing foods that boost mood, such as omega-3 fatty acids. Finally, don't hesitate to seek professional help if feeling overwhelmed; therapists or counselors offer valuable coping strategies.
