Lorde is embracing her inner mermaid on a beautiful trip to Norway. The 26-year-old singer shared pictures of herself relaxing after a show, wearing a black bikini and swimming in a softly-lit nighttime pool. "After the show we went swimming… These times are beautiful and they freak me out and there's so much to tell you. No this is not the start of anything out there, just want u to know there's a light on inside me… Show it to you soon," she captioned the post. How does she have the energy? Here are 5 ways Lorde stays fit, healthy, and happy.


Making Time For Workouts

Lorde squeezes in workouts whenever she can, even while on tour. "Lorde's concert tour was a total whirlwind," says trainer Allison Kimmel. "We didn't always have the perfect schedule for training. If we had 30 minutes between things to squeeze in a workout or a stretch, we made it work," Kimmel says. "Other times, we had over an hour and could extend her warm-up or add some extra cardio sets."


Yoga and Cardio

Lorde's trainer combined yoga and strength-building exercises. "I would start with a 15-minute jog or other cardio followed by an uptempo yoga-inspired warm-up," Kimmel says. "After that, we would get into our main sets which were comprised of traditional strength exercises, combined with barre and Pilates."


Berries and Seaweed

Lorde's go-to snacks  before a show are berries and seaweed. "Usually before a gig I have a sleep in my dressing room under a blanket I take everywhere with me," she says. "I eat some berries or some dried nori (which I get all over my face) in place of dinner, because a couple of hours before the performance, my stomach starts heaving and I feel like I'm going to throw up — even when I'm not that nervous. It's the weirdest thing."


Lots of Stretching

Lorde makes sure to stretch before her performances. "I do lots of stretching, because when I perform my limbs fly all over the place," she says. "The boys laugh at me lunging across the room. I'm a very physical performer. I fill space with the movement of my hands, my arms, my head, my stance, and that all helps communicate what I'm talking about."



Embracing Imperfection

Lorde is open about using spot creams to deal with skin imperfections. "As a young person who is obsessed with popular culture, fashion, and beauty, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming thinking about all your imperfections compared to these people who are flawless," she says. "I think a lot of people believe that being famous makes you superhuman. I think the standards don't have to be how they are. I just think about my girlfriends and how we all get acne. We feel terrible about it because we feel like it doesn't happen to anyone else. So I'm like, 'Look, it's OK'."
