“SAVE this post next time you need quick wellness ideas."

Davina Potratz is revealing her on-the-go health habits – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the Selling Sunset star shows off her flat abs while opening up about her health habits when she is busy. "How I stay fit with a busy schedule," she captioned the post. "SAVE this post next time you need quick wellness ideas and let me know your favorite ways to stay healthy when busy or traveling." How does the star approach diet, fitness, and self-care when she's not at home? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits on-the-go.



Davina's approach to health starts when she is sleeping. "If I'm traveling or have a busy week, my first priority is getting enough sleep, even if I have to take naps during the day," she writes. "Feeling and looking great starts with getting enough rest." What are the health benefits of sleep? According to the Sleep Foundation, getting enough z's is a mood booster, promotes heart health, regulates blood sugar, improves mental function, restores your immune system, helps relieve stress, and aids in weight loss. 



She also makes sure to get her steps in. "Walk as much as possible to maximize activity and multi task, even if heading to a meeting or taking a call, just make sure you have enough sun screen on," she writes. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.


Hydration and Healthy Diet

"Hydrate throughout the day and snack on whole fruit, nuts or protein shakes so that you're never super hungry, because that's when you're more likely to make compromised food choices. Prioritize protein for every meal," says Davina. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.


Breathing Exercises


Finally, she recommends breathing exercises. "Do breathing exercises such as box breathing to calm your nervous system and keep you in the present. Managing how you feel through breathing is very helping and relaxing," she concludes. 


Strength Training

She also recommends strength training. "Do a few simple workouts that don't require a gym or a lot of time, such as wall sits, squats, bicycle crunches, planks, push-ups, step-ups, high knees and leg raises," she says. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills
