Jessie Star Debby Ryan Shares Swimsuit Photo of "Fall Time"
Debby Ryan is taking the (cold) plunge in her swimsuit. In a new social media post, The Suite Life on Deck and Jessie star shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit while spending time in a cold plunge. "Fall time," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How does the Disney alum, 30, approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Debby strives for self-acceptance. Ever since she was young she has been battling body dysmorphia. "Dysmorphia has been a dark passenger of mine for years. I first noticed it at 13, when I was told to draw an image of my body, and the silhouette and shape of what I saw apparently did not line up at all with what everyone else saw," she told The Sydney Morning Herald. "I don't know to this day if I've ever looked in the mirror and seen what other people see when they look at me. And I have never had a day, not one day, where I looked in the mirror and thought, 'Cool.' It used to be all I wanted but I've accomplished a lot in 12 years, so maybe I don't need that to feel fulfilled any more."
Avoiding Emotional Eating
I'd gone through heartbreak and my close friend was going through cancer and I emotionally ate and was dealing with a full-blown eating disorder," Debby told The Sydney Morning Herald. "I put on 12 pounds, which isn't much on the Hollywood scale, but everyone online was calling me fat and speculating that I was on drugs. It enraged me so much."
Debby is a boxer. Not only does it help her stay in shape, but also is helpful in treating her stress. She fights with her husband, Twenty One Pilots singer Josh Dun. "Is he grabbing my butt," she captioned a few snaps from one of their workout sessions. "This kind of boxing has many health benefits, because it constantly requires you to think, change your position, and change your posture," physical therapist Linda Arslanian, director of rehabilitation services at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's hospital tells Harvard Health."You're swinging your arms, moving the muscles of your arms and shoulders, increasing your upper-body strength. And when you're in the boxer crouch with a wide stance, with your knees slightly bent, you're strengthening your core muscles, back, and legs."
Rock climbing and snowboarding are two of Debby's favorite action sports. "Nighttime is for carving slow and flirting on the slopes," she captioned this snap. According to the University of Rochester, snowboarding, like skiing, is a great cardiovascular workout. "Because they are also weight-bearing exercises, they strengthen your bones as they tone your muscles," they say. "Cardiovascular or aerobic exercises also work to reduce your risk for chronic diseases, and lower blood pressure. They also help you maintain a healthy body weight. Through regular aerobic exercise like skiing and snowboarding, you lower your risk of developing conditions like diabetes and heart disease, having a stroke, and perhaps even getting cancer."
Rollerblading, Hiking, and Walking
Rollerblading, hiking, and walking are a few other calorie-blasting activities that Debby enjoys. Sometimes she even walks her dog while rollerblading, like in this adorable Instagram post. "He walked me for like a whole 5k," she captioned the video.
